Hopefully she releases on a slow week with a tour bundle and a million different buying options like Kylie did with Golden.

We've got to go all out. I really want her this album to go #1 so all the haters will be reminded who reigns supreme.

I do believe a tour bundle would greatly help.....look what it did for MDNA, thanks to the bundle, it came very close to matching first week sales of COADF. The only downside to that is week #2 when there's no more bundle. ☹️ All those great congratulatory headlines from week one got overshadowed by the (gleeful) press of how she had the biggest drop from number one ever.

It’s been nearly 20 years since The Backstreet Boys last had a #1 album, 2000’s Black & Blue. This week, DNA, their ninth studio album, returns the band to the top. 

 

  1. *Backstreet Boys (K-Bahn/RCA) 212-222k total activity, 207-217k album

 

The power of a successful bundle like MDNA's.

Half of RH sales.

Well, without the leaks and with the right choice of the first singles, she may actually sell more than RH

When the album comes out well have to stream it a lot so it will debut on no. 1 on Billboard 200 albums chart like those hop hop rap acts whose albums debut at no. 1 benefiting from streamings. 

Aren't there limits to streaming per account now to prevent the Stan multi streaming?

That’s what I’m hoping. It does piss me off how good RH was, and those songs were ignored by the sheep public. What pissed me off even more was another Ghosttown song being played on radio when it didn’t even compare to M’s powerful ballad. Madonna fans should never forget how good we have it. Her ability has remained consistent. No matter what the radio stations decide, any Madonna song is going down in history as significant because it was recorded by MADONNA. So bring on MAGIC.

It's almost 19 years since Madonna had a Billboard Hot 100 #1... sigh... wishing for a breakout hit

It’s just not realistic. She needs a proper label first. And besides, there are NO other 60 year olds on the planet who are charting high on the Hot 100. At this point it’s only setting yourself up for disappointment. I’ll gladly take decent sales and critical acclaim over some quick Hot 100 “hit” 

 

Have you seen the Hot 100 lately? It’s full of trash. All you need for a “hit” these days is a ton of streams and payola. I’d rather her stay far, far away from that swamp of a chart. She’s so above that at this point.

So the final numbers are in and the Backstreet Boys debuted at No1 with 236k. They have been completely irrelevant since like 2001 and still managed to open with 236k due to a perfectly executed tour bundle and you're telling me Madonna can't open with similar numbers if they do the bundle the right way like they did with MDNA?

If Kylie Minogue can shift close to 300k of her latest album, I am certain Madonna can double that. 

Well, it will depend on the album in the end.

In the US?! :shock:

Worldwide. She is around 320k. 

Kylie’s Golden, hit #1 in the UK and Australia, and received very good reviews.

 It has sold so far close to 160k in the UK alone, thanks to a great promo campaign by her label BMG, multiple limited edition cassette releases (original edition, tour edition, xmass edition) which all sold out instantly, 5 “singles” (all playlisted by Radio 2 , the biggest British radio station by audience, 4 music videos, numerous TV appearances, a small scale but successful tour. She has more than doubled the sales of her last album.

She is also playing more shows in the summer and headlining Glastonbury. She will surely shift more copies of her album.  

If Kylie can do it? So could Madonna, easily.

Madonna’s outreach and fanbase is far greater than Kylie’s. If managed properly, Madonna could sell at least 700k worldwide.

That wasn’t really that hard, was it? Kiss Me Once sold about 12 copies.

Madonna will easily sell more than the *impressive* sales of Kylie‘s latest album.

We should also not forget that all the streams of songs released from the album before the album release accumulate and count towards the opening week of the album.

That's why it is important to release more than just 1 song before the album drops. They will get some streams just because she is Madonna and that will help 1st week numbers.

I hope someone in her team is explaing to her how streaming works and how important it is in 2019. Two singles before the album is releast is so important for its success.

Backstreet Boys scored a top 20 hit at top 40 radio, so that didn't hurt, either. But, yeah, the group looks to be a top concert draw, hence the successful album/concert promo.

If Madonna's album/ticket promotion works like MDNA did- meaning, all dates on sale prior to the album release, and available in both physical and digital copies- the first week could be a decent one. As mentioned, though, the drop thereafter will be big. But these days, a lot of albums - thanks to such promotions- are seeing huge second-week percentage declines.

Didn't Gaga replace that record shortly after?

There have been plenty of drops larger than MDNA's. Cher fell almost 92% last year.

They should focus on snatching the No1 and not care about the 2nd week drop. It would have to be a 95+% drop to break records.

We need a physical copy bundle and all dates on sale and redeemable before the album release. That's what they did with MDNA and that's what all successful tour bundle campaigns have done. Look at Backstreet Boys, Pink etc..

It will break streaming records on Spotify, Tidal, Luhu and Poodle with over 240 million streams in one week

I Don't Search I Find  will be the top streaming hit of the 2010s at the end of the decade.
