She has had such bad luck with many of her albums and singles. So many that should have reached #1 and were stopped by some random phenom. Not this time!

This is true. Ray of Light, Rebel Heart, The Immaculate Collection and Erotica all should have been #1 albums. A shame ugh...but they still sold a ton. 🙂

Erotica not debuting at number one had to sting for all that transpired before its release.

90,000 is the sales unit; we don't know the breakdown of physical and digital. It will be No. 1 on Top Album Sales and Internet Albums, most likely. Possibly Digital Albums. Not sure about Vinyl Albums. RH peaked at 2 on the latter.

90,000 in pure sales is a very solid number and not only for a veteran act in 2019 sales climate. For comparison LIl Nas X is projected to hit number one next week with 70k units and only 4-7k copies in album sales...

So, did I read correctly that this is the best number in terms of albums sold so far this year for a female act? 

Yes, @HolidayGuy everyone needs to enjoy this moment. Next week is next week. She has the #1 album in the USA right now. Huge achievement. 

 I think this is the first #1 in the summer (well our summer) since TB.

^Fourth-largest sales week for a female this year (excluding A Star is Born, which is also credited to Bradley Cooper). Ones with higher sums:

* Billie Ellish: 170,000

* Ariana Grande: 116,000

* Pink: 95,000

Let's come back in 30 years or so to see how those ladies are selling then 

That's the thing, isn't it? They won't even reach a tenth fraction of what M has at 37 years into her career. And with the direction the music industry is moving, they will be lucky to even have a career.

"Madonna will be out of business in six months." - Billboard Magazine, 1985

precisely why they can't stand her she's proven everyone wrong every step of the way 

they try to shame her for her age but they are not really bothered by her age it's the fact that she has surpassed expectations and made each and every one of them eat their words so yes Madame X congratulations!

Madonna doesn't need to chart ever again and her legacy, her place atop the music industry, is secure. She will never be not relevant, even after she dies. There will never be any one like her again.

Forgive my reading comprehension issues from earlier! 🙂

I hope that the news about the 163 number one hits in the Billboard charts goes viral generating positive vibes and...more sales.

Actually she has 185 no. 1s on all Billboard charts.
