I preferred the gold tooth. At least you could see her eyes

You say it like you couldn't see her eyes at all, you can see the right eye :smile:

 

Great she went back at #1 in the global iTunes album chart !!

Do we know how much it has sold worldwide though ? I’m curious and I’m thrilled she at least made number 1 in the USA especially after not hitting number 1 in U.K. 😫

Sales are really low, I guess around 200-250k? But not too bad given the average these days.

 but in BuzzAngle Top 50 building chart (which HDD uses for their charts), Madame X is not Top 50 with Friday-Sunday sales.

It’s #20 in their sales only chart.
In the event Madame X ended up at #20 on pure sales, it would mean around 5k-6k copies. #100 on Billboard 200 sells around 9k copies. #200 around 5k. I don’t think she’ll add 4K from streaming this week, so she might fall below #100 (if she really ends at #20 -or lower- on pure sales).

Feels damn good to have her BACK IN TOP WHERE SHE BELONGS!

She's made it to #1 without any radio airplay support! That's the power of Madonna!

Yeah but I would imagine it will short lived sadly - I wonder how it’s doing in the second week 🤔

Does anyone know how this is doing this week? I know that on iTunes sales it's very low, but I don't have a clue on physical sales.

Sadly it was clear that the album will drop a lot in week 2 because of the lack of radio support and the very negative press - especially in Europe. I think Madonna and her team could expect that. Overall it's a shame, because the album is so great, she has put so much effort into it and she really does a lot of promotion. This is just another proof that nowadays - more than ever - music hits are just made on hype and not on good music anymore.

And if you're over 30 now, you can do whatever you want and you won't get a hit anymore and nobody will buy or stream your music. I mean Katy Perry is suffering the same now, her new single is great, but it didn't chart very high and her streaming numbers are low now too, and she's only 34(!). Billboard wrote an article about her some weeks ago about her career going down because she's now over 30. This is just crazy and insane. And it is a symptom of music streaming, where streaming numbers are totally distorted by young nerds who do nothing than stream endlessly tracks of musicians who are hyped at the moment, they don't care about their music.  This will hurt the music industry very much in the long run, believe me.

I don’t think Katy Perry is in the same league as Madonna when M was in her prime but either way it’s sad - the music charts are so sexist and ageist - I haven’t seen Madame X in any of my local U.K. supermarkets but they were all selling Bruce Springsteen new album 🙄

It’s also very ironic when you consider the person spending on the charts for the “New” under 30 market are the adults in charge of these children. If things were fair most streaming numbers would rely on traceable sales via credit cards or ApplePay or whatever versus the strange view based gambling system they have now. 1/5 of the artists on the Top 20 posted above are deceased, which should be its own chart. It’s all just fucked and I’m sure a vet like Madonna is fully aware. On to the tour and live show experience hopefully a DVD by next summer of these shows 😍
