| Filed under: MadonnaMusic Minute

Madge Number 1

Madonna has FULL permission to scoff at any of her doubters!

MDNA is a full-fledged HIT!!!!!

The album was Madonna's 12th studio album and first with Interscope! The newly released collection has already sold an estimated 325,000-350,000 copies in the U.S. on its FIRST day on Monday!!

Not too shabby! Ha!

MDNA raked in more sales than her last release Hard Candy, which opened with 280,000 in 2008!!!

Madge is set to take the #1 position on the HITS Album sales chart for next week!

They don't call her Madgesty for nothin'!

There is NO stopping the queen!!!!

    I surprised because she has not one single in the top 40 on the HOT 100. I curious to see what the numbers will look like at the end of the week and the 2nd week of sales. But anyway congrats to madonna for another number one album!



  2. 2

    THE GREAT REVIEWS PROBABLY HELPED. ANYWAY ITS A GREAT ALBUM

    omg that's only for Monday??? wow! pretty effing amazing! i listened to the album and there are some SERIOUS gems on there but also some SERIOUS duds (b day song….omfg WHY) but good for her, people are gonna hate so much lol

    I'm happy for her, but that figure is what is being projected for the first full week… Not one day.

    Re: justtospeaktruth
    Did he wish Mariah Carey one as well? Not surprised if he didn't.

    I'll never understand why the awful Give Me All Your Luvin and the so-so Girls Gone Wild were released as singles instead of the truly amazing Turn Up the Radio, Love Spent and I'm Addicted. Turn Up the Radio is rumored to be the 3rd single and will be a summer anthem. If that was the song she performed at the Super Bowl I have little doubt that would have been a massive hit. Hopefully ageist radio will actually embrace that one. Congrats to the Queen on another Number 1 album.



  7. 7

    hmm, well according to billboard, she is set to sell 300-350k for the entire week, not just one day.. so thats a little difference



  8. 8

    Isn't she being beat by a Lionel Richie covers album on Itunes? Either way, congrats to Madonna having another mediocre album making it to #1.



  9. 9

    Re: YoungTaurus – he didn't lol but him not saying happy birthday to someone that was plastered all over his website 4-5 months ago and is his 'wifey' is a little questionable..

    Great cd…turn up the radio should have been first single…id say theres no doubt she succeeded again what a run shes had envied by by all her peers no doubt



  11. 11

    What is with the speed racer gloves? She must be trying to cover up her elderly hands! Girl needs to get her AARP card!

    Re: jim
    "Turn Up The Radio" sounds like something Kylie Minogue did 10 years ago. I'm on the fence with MDNA. Some of the songs are great, some are just OK, and some are just booger. "B-Day Song"? What the hell was she thinking with that one? MDNA is a lot better than the last album, which wasn't as bad as some people think, but I don't think I'll be remembering some of these tunes in about a year from now.



  13. 13

    the one and only queen of pop and she aint selling her album for 99 cents lol hate on that little monsters lol madonna is and will be the only queen forever she is fucking immortal like cleopatra lol



  14. 14

    Madonna has been a part of my life for so long now… since 1993! Im so proud to see her fighting another battle: Ageism! PS: I love I'm addicted, Masterpiece, Beautiful Killer, Falling Free, Love Spent, and GangBang!



  15. 15

    So that means number one albums in four decades…right??? that has to be a record!!!



  16. 16

    Re: Superguy

    CRAZY!!! Congrats M



  17. 17

    number 1 for a week then slides down the following week…



  18. 18

    Re: justtospeaktruth
    I agree. Something is odd. He never mentions her anymore…at all (which is fine by me but very fishy) BUT congrats, Madonna!!! I'm in love with this album.



  19. 19

    CONGRATS MADONNA!FK THE HATERS SHE WILL STOP WHEN SHE SAYS SHES DONE WITH GREAT ALBUM AND TOUR SALES ITS GONNA BE A WHILE FOLKS



  20. 20

    These are one week sales not on day sales.



  21. 21

    awesome. MDNA is amazing…. shame that she release the worst 2 single in the album as single.MDNA songs are huge.,..shes getting amazing reviews. and is #1 everywhere. ppl missed M. and shes going on tour soon. AMAZING TOUR. and she didnt sold her album for 99 cents



  22. 22

    ITS AN AMAZING ALBUM and will be perfectly promote on an amazing tour… and M is everywhere on the news



  23. 23

    Wow! And remember, these are JUST numbers for the U.S., not east and west Europe, Australia, Asia.. where she's even more popular than she is here.

    "Hard Candy" was the 11th best selling album worldwide of 2008, so looks like MDNA will be top ten for the year. Amazing!



  24. 24

    she is unstoppable MDNA is #1 all over the world!



  25. 25

    That's her projected sales for the WEEK, Perez! And I'm surprised it's not even higher as much as she and YOU have been promoting it.



  26. 26

    OH!I love when She is on TOP!

  27. tasha says – reply to this

    As has been pointed out to you, this is the projected 1st week sales, not what she sold the 1st day. Still great. She's outselling her younger counterpart, Britney Spears, who's last album still hasn't reached a million in the USA.



  28. 28

    Not surprised it's #1. Why is it so important that it's #1 in the U.S.? She's one of those artists that's known every where that's why compare her to all the other "well known in the U.S." artists are like comparing apples and oranges. The fact that she got a huge raise in her bank account, I'm sure a few jabs from the haters don't amount to much. Those are the idiots who'd write good shit about her after she's dead (we can think of 2 that comes to mind). Can only appreciate them when they are dead. Now that's fucked up sorry to say. As for Lionel? Really? It's NOT even new material. Why don't they write something like "recycled" hits so I can make some money. Just sayin'.



  29. 29

    Re: Chiclets
    It's funny how Madonna's lemmings will bitch and complain about people tearing down Madonna, but then turn around and tear down other artists just to make her look good. Who cares if Lionel Richie is not releasing new material? He's been in the game longer than Madonna and all the other artists in the charts, and his album is doing well in a sea of auto-tuned singers and tired dance beats. That says a lot more than what you're saying.



  30. 30

    She beat Elvis's record for most #1 albums in the UK. Queen of pop :D



  31. 31

    PEREZ-PLAINLY-STATED THAT 325,000-350,000 WAS FOR-FIRST DAY-PROJECTIONS…CAN'T YOU READ "LITTLE MONSTER"???

    Re: bcm75Re: bcm75Re: bcm75



  32. 32

    Re: joehandy2
    Actually if you read the HitsDailyDouble article that Perez copied from and misread, it states that those numbers are projected for the week (same thing said in Billboard). They came up with those numbers by taking the first day sales, and then figuring out how it would sell daily throughout the rest of the week. They even admit in the article that it wasn't very scientific how they came up with that number.



  33. 33

    [Re: Chiclets
    Lionel Richie is releasing an album of his previous material to make more money? What the hell for? The man is sitting on a back catalog of music that he made with the Commodores, for himself, and numerous hits he's written for other people. He's making a ton of money on just the royalties from those original songs alone.



  34. 34

    LMAO, I knew that would get some Lionel fans back up. How do like them apples that an artist being picked on? Lionel Ritchie is NOT the only example but if you're going to trash one celebrity for being outdated/sound of their music… well, the list is endless. My point is, if you're going to bitch about someone like Madonna, you should look around and see what others are doing. Think outside the box for a change. I frankly have Lionel's stuff (original) which I think are classics and need not be remade. Just my opinion.



  35. 35

    Re: Chiclets
    Well, thank goodness he didn't release an album based on YOUR opinion. YOUR opinion isn't the one "making him more money."

    ADDICTED to I'M ADDICTED



  39. 39

    LMAO, DESPERATE OLD HAG CHEATED.

    LIONEL RITCHIE HAS BEEN #1 ON ITUNES ALL WEEK. MADONNASAUR DROPPED TO #4.

    SHE GAVE AWAY HER FLOP CD WITH TICKET PURCHASES TO HER LIP SYNC CIRCUS.

    AND SHE STILL SOLD LESS THAN GAGA LOL.

    DESPERATE FOSSIL HAS TO CHEAT TO GET TO #1.

    RIP MADONNASAUR LOL



  40. 40

    LIONEL RITCHIE IS SUPPOSED TO BE #1.

    HE'S BEEN OUTSELLING FLOPDONNA ON ITUNES AND AMAZON SINCE THE DAY OF RELEASE.

    SINCE SHE WAS GIVING AWAY THE FLOP CD WHEN PEOPLE BOUGHT HER CONCERT TICKETS, THEY COUNTED THOSE FREEBIES INTO HER FIRST WEEK TO GET THAT 300-350K NUMBER.

    IF SHE WASN'T GIVING AWAY CD'S FOR TICKETS, SHE WOULDN'T BE DEBUTING AT #1.

    SHE COPIED GAGA (AGAIN) AND USED A CHART SCAM TO GET TO #1.

    AND GAGA STILL SOLD DOUBLE THAT EVEN WITHOUT HER CHART TRICK LOL.

    MADONNASAUR MAKES A PAYOLA DEAL TO GET AIRPLAY, THEN SHE GIVES AWAY CD'S FOR TICKETS TO GET A #1 ALBUM.

    DESPERATE HAG NEEDS TO RETIRE.



  41. 41

    Re: lington – NO, SHE DIDN'T SELL IT FOR 99 CENTS.

    SHE GAVE IT AWAY WHEN SOME FOOL BUYS HER CONCERT TICKET.

    THAT'S FAR WORSE, AND FAR MORE DESPERATE.

    AND SHE STILL SOLD LESS THAN GAGA LOL.



  42. 42

    Congrats Madonna Queen Of Pop!!! More importantly…..does anyone know if Ga Ga is okay after her meltdown? Is she out of the hospital? What caused this anyway? I mean she is my Mother Monster one minute….and the next she completely loses it and has a media paranoia meltdown?! I just read she was wandering the streets in her underwear with a crown on her head chanting lines from Vogue? What is happening and why isn't Perez talking about this? Prayers for Gaga during this awful time.



  43. 43

    Re: WHORE1 – SHITTY GAGA IS SO OVER , POOR IDIOT DIGITAL SALES ARE NOT SO IMPORTANT , PHYSICAL ALBUMS SELL SO MUCH MORE , MADONNA S FANS ARE CROWING THE MUSIC STORES TO GET MDNA, shitty gaga is shit , she need to reire for months , because her repulsive image is getting bored to all the world ,MADONN STILL BEEN THE QUEEN OF THE WORLD , FLOP GAGA IS NOW SO IRRELEVANT ONLY AFTER 4 YEARS



  44. 44

    billboard-soundscan won t count the albums that madonna will give for buying her ticket concerts , the 350,000 that mdna will sell , 320,000 will be physicals or more



  45. 45

    MADONNA IS THE QUEN OF THYE UNIVERSE ,



  46. 46

    Re: Aladdin Sane – Won't waste my time arguing when you TOTALLY missed my point.



  47. 47

    Re: Chiclets
    It's too late. You already wasted your time on here posting a bunch of bullshit. The point that you TOTALLY made quite clear was that you had none. :) I wouldn't have expected much of an "argument" from you anyway. Who the hell still says, "how about them apples?"



  48. 48

    MDNA IS GOLD IN GERMANY



  49. 49

    Congrats to the Queen, it's a GREAT album. She knows how to please her fans and that's all that matters in the end. Albums are now promo's for TOURING, where she reigns supreme!

    Don't forget she gave every electronic ticket buyer a copy of her album so those units aren't counted towards sales. And for the dolts that think iTunes is the world, uh no it isn't.

    For disposable music you don't care about, itunes and mp3's are fine, but many of Madonna's fans want hard copy CD's that they can keep FOREVER! I'm even buying the VINYL version!

    I can't stop listening to MDNA, it's that GOOD!



  50. 50

    …and for all you little monster haters, listen to the end of Gang Bang and follow the instructions—-> "while you're at it DIE BITCH!"



  51. 51

    HAHA NOPE



  52. 52

    Re: BrianMaxon – SHE WISHES HER SALES WERE LIKE GAGA HAHAHAHAH



  53. 53

    Re: Chiclets
    "My point is, if you're going to bitch about someone like Madonna, you should look around and see what others are doing. "
    But you see, Ms. Chic-Fil-A: no one's going around saying "Lionel Richie is constantly re-inventing himself" or "Lionel Richie is going to show all these young pop stars how it's done." Get it now?



  54. 54

    Re: BrianMaxon
    "listen to the end of Gang Bang and follow the instructions—-> "while you're at it DIE BITCH!" "
    After you, my dear!



  55. 55

    There's only one QUEEN, bitches and that's MADONNA!

    No 0.99 sales here and even that would be a dollar too much for anything rat face caca makes!
