  1. The 1989 charts debates were just like that! I collect album reviews and sales data comparisons since the LAP era: that album was often labelled as a disappointment, there are many reviews stating "Ok, she tried to shock us with the first single and video, so the album went to no.1. Then she spent millions of dollars for the second video, but the song flopped (= it didn't catch the no.1 spot). Now we've got a third single and video, in which she tries to be sweet smiling among dolphins. But there's a fact: LAP is struggling to sell a half of what TB did, and Madonna lost her identity. USA has its new Madonna now: Paula Abdul. She sings better than Madonna, she dances better than her". Other pearls: "Be careful, Madonna, you are 30 and a series of 20yo newcomers is ready to steal your crown. Their names are Martika, whose Toy Soldier is a tremendous hit, Jody Watley, Tiffany". "Promise To Try" composed for the fans of Debbie Gibson, because she's a copycat of her ballads. "Madonna is trying to recupe her lost fans, tired of her sex/religion exploits, so her new single Dear Jessie is a baroque and her new video is a cartoon, but it is already a flop". "Madonna recycled the vogueing and released a catchy but forgettable song. But the real winner of this 1990 is Sinead O'Connor" "Nobody is interested to a Madonna greatest hits because everybody owns the albums. She was forced to realize a porno video trying to sell her GH" Etcetera.
  2. So true. Madonna always had someone selling more than her, "seasonal phenomenons" or masterpieces. Selling 600K now remains a sad thing, but... 1984 Bruce Springsteen “Born in the U.S.A.” 15×p 1984 Prince “Purple Rain” 13×p 1984 Madonna “Like A Virgin” 10xp 1986 Bon Jovi “Slippery When Wet 12×p 1986 Madonna “True Blue” 7xp 1989 Janet Jackson “Rhythm Nation 1814” 6×p 1989 Madonna “Like A Prayer” 4xp 1990 Garth Brooks “No Fences” 17×p 1990 Madonna “The Immaculate Collection” 10xp 1990 Madonna “I'm Breathless” 2xp 1992 Whitney Houston & V.A. “The Bodyguard” 20×p 1992 Kenny G “Breathless” 12×p 1992 Madonna “Erotica” 2xp 1994 Hootie and the Blowfish “Cracked Rear View” 16xp 1994 TLC “CrazySexyCool” 11xp 1994 Boyz II Men “II” 12×p 1994 Green Day “Dookie” 10xp 1994 The Offspring “Smash” 6xp 1994 Madonna “Bedtime Stories” 3xp 1995 Alanis Morissette “Jagged Little Pill” 17×p 1995 Jewel “Pieces of You” 12xp 1995 Shania Twain “The Woman in Me” 12xp 1995 Mariah Carey “Daydream” 10xp 1995 No Doubt “Tragic Kingdom” 10xp 1995 Madonna “Something To Remember” 3xp 1996 Matchbox Twenty “Yourself or Someone Like You” 12×p 1996 Celine Dion “Falling into You” 11xp 1996 2pac “All Eyez On Me” 9×p 1996 Madonna & V.A. “Evita” 5xp 1998 Garth Brooks “Double Live” 20×p 1998 Dixie Chicks “Wide Open Spaces” 12xp 1998 *NSYNC “*NSYNC” 11xp 1998 Kid Rock “Devil Without a Cause” 11xp 1998 Madonna “Ray Of Light” 4xp 2000 Linkin Park “Hybrid Theory” 16×p 2000 *NSYNC “No Strings Attached” 11xp 2000 Britney Spears “ Oops!… I Did It Again” 10×p 2000 The Beatles “1” 10×p 2000 Madonna “Music” 3xp 2003 Norah Jones “Come Away With Me” 10xp 2003 Madonna “American Life” 1xp 2005 Carrie Underwood “Some Hearts” 7×p 2005 Mariah Carey “The Emancipation Of Mimi” 6xp 2005 Madonna “Confessions On A Dance Floor” 1xp
  3. Not so good, considering that COADF sold 217K in its FIRST week...
  4. Yes, in France FNAC sold HC two days before its European release. In Italy it was released the 25th April too, but those copies were added to the chart of 04th May, while in France they were counted for the 27th April chart (37K copies, enough for #1). So that 44K are 90% from France.
  5. Let's consider the three biggest markets in the EU: In France GGGB sold 150K, more or less (april 08). In Germany she's 1xP (200K). In Uk she sold 558K copies in 2007 and 195K in 2008 (end of april estimations at Haven). So 750K circa. But, at the time of the EU certification, she was "only" 2xP (600K, february 2008). So, the 3xP cert is probably a mistake. As a comparison, COADF Vs GGGB in the three EU biggest markets: UK --> 1.3M Vs. 750K D --> 600K Vs 200K F --> 800K Vs 150K Total 2.7M Vs 1.1M But IFPI: 4M Vs 3M
  6. QUOTE(missy bi_tch @ Nov 30 2006, 10:15 AM) * still would be an achievement wouldn't it? now, we need someone to assassinate her. OK, another Glitter delirium plus nervous breakdown, then!
  7. Good. Other 5K copies, maybe. I hope WBR will discount the album next week, I want COADF at least at 1.3M at the end of 2007 (a million more than AL). Then, another album!
  8. It should have topped the 1.2M plateau, then... COADF possibly sold 4.000 copies at #109?
