Carly, just heading off to JB HI now. Will listen to the album in the car and also download all the songs on ITunes when I return.

I just went ahead and ordered the super deluxe on Amazon. It's not the same as going to a record store, but oh well. I can't wait to finally listen! So jealous of everyone who has their copy.

It's apparently because of this BS. Madonna can't catch a break this era:

https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/6487769/apple-itunes-store-concerns-changes

The latest move inside iTunes addresses how pre-orders are counted. Previously, pre-orders impacted the store chart as the orders came in, as well as the day of the release, when those orders were fulfilled to customers. That usually meant a title with a large amount of preorders would be assured the No. 1 slot on the day of release, an effective marketing tool for labels which allowed them to bring attention to the album's availability by touting its No. 1 spot in the iTunes chart.

However, in the new configuration, all pre-orders are wiped clean as the clock strikes midnight on the day of the release. Consequently, that title's chart position is determined by what new sales activity takes place on the first day of its release, not all the activity it had generated through pre-orders. This move cuts down chances of landing the No. 1 spot, as the new release will have to get there solely through new purchases on the day of release.

Prepare yourself for the ignorant wave of reports that Madonna's new album has already flopped before it began.

^WTF!!!! When does this change take effect?

edit: Oh wait, it's just for the iTunes chart. I thought for a sec that all of Madonna's pre-orders were not going to account for anything for official album chart :dramatic:.

Can't be bothered to read this thread but based on the music the video, performances, controversy, magazine covers and the fact she is EVERYWHERE this is the best era since ROL. The fact she doesn't go on tour until the end of August means we are getting videos and a lot more promo.

I now have the digital deluxe album but I have to go to work. After that I'll check if one of the stores have the super deluxe version. I'll even skip the gym so I can get to home asap!!!!

I wonder if it will count if I cancel my pre-order and then re-purchase the complete my album on release day. It's so hard to help Madonna.

if i had have known about that STUPID rule i would have done that. not fair at all. we bought the album today fair and square. it should be number 1.

They have their own artists to push... And they have many. Universal's market share is like 40%.

That's more reason to push Madonna as an artist, people are still talking about the Brits and she will be appearing on Jonathan Ross next Saturday. She is technically one of their artists and their deal is to market and distribute her work. No excuses for this one. However Carly Rae Jepsen gets two section on the newsletter for her new video and her iTunes single. I guess she's more important than the most successful female artist of all time. Thank god she only has one more album for them. Never thought I'd say this but bring back Warner Bros!
