    It's between LAP and ROL, but I went with LAP. Strong case could be made for either, though.

    Did anyone happen to take a screenshot(s) or take count of how many merchandise bundles (including a physical or digital copy of the album) that were available for Madame X upon its release? I know it was a decent number, but since then, we've seen some acts have dozens, and I don't think the MX number was quite that high. Thanks for any info.

    The World of Madame X documentary was on Amazon, so she could take that route with the tour itself.
  4. The covers are online-only, it looks.
  5. I would have gone with a LAP-era photo, but other than that, good stuff. From what I can see, these are other female music acts who were chosen: Bessie Smith (1923), Billie Holiday (1939), Zenzile Miriam Makeba (1967), Aretha Franklin (1968), Sinead O'Connor (1992), Pussy Riot (2012) and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter (2014).

    Shouldn't have released MX? What'chu talkin' about? In any event, she could have released the most radio-0friendly accessible music of her career, and it wouldn't have sold much more, if more at all. Happens to the best, and all, of them.

    Commercially, no matter what she released first, it would have struggled, in probably most parts of the globe. I don't know if there is one track that would have screamed "She's back!" more than any other, perhaps, again, for the reason previously stated.

    You're welcome, Voguerista. Unless Billboard changes the rules for album redemptions, it should re-enter those charts next week. There have been rumbles that something would change with the start of the new chart year, though not sure if it's Nov.30 or Dec. 7 charts- and it may be merch bundles that are of more concern that album-redemption offers.

    I see not much activity in this forum, so I thought I'd post this. Buzz Angle is a precursor to forthcoming U.S. charts- it's not an exact match or anything, but it gives an idea. Thus, MX should re0enter Billboard's Top Current Albums chart (for a 19th week) and perhaps Top Album Sales (for a 10th week). It likely will never re-enter the Billboard 200, as the sales aren't high enough to offset the relatively low amount of streaming. (It would need weekly sales in the range of 6K-7K or so.) BuzzAngle Album Sales Charts- Friday-Tuesday (in parentheses: ranking trends vs. yesterday's position) U.S. Album Sales: No. 41 (=) Los Angeles: No. 6 (+1) Miami-Fort Lauderdale: No. 7 (+1) San Francisco: No. 25 (-4) Boston (Manchester, NH): No. 19 (+3) Philadelphia: No. 25 (-1)

    Yes, especially from that angle, you cannot grasp the experience that is Madame X.

    Unless Madonna reunites with WB, I doubt it will bother to update her certs. Her albums have sold 75m+ in the USA, per a late-2009 Billboard article, so some albums indeed would be eligible for higher certs. Like a Prayer and Ray of Light, I can see both at 5 million. TIC, of course, could be upped. Singles sales/shipments had dropped to 94 million in 1986, down considerably from 1980. Though I have no doubt that "Live to Tell," a new Madonna single that hit No. 1 without availability on any album at that time, didn't ship 500,000-plus. "Material Girl" would also be a gold contender (note that this just pertains to physical, not digital or adding digital, streaming info, to physical, etc.). WB was not the best at certifying product, so we can't go by a title's last cert and what sales it saw thereafter.

    ^ Noted.
  13. JimMarq Radenhausen

    If it were forgotten favorites, do you mean hits, or album cuts? She could do something like the Anti-Tour, that the Princess of Pop did.
  14. JimMarq Radenhausen

    It's a Billboard survey, thus it's based on the charts. In this instance, week-to-week performance on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts. if it were cultural impact, Madonna would be even higher than 5, and far ahead of other females.

    ^Much thanks. Music makes the people come together.
