And those who are worried about the second week drop the Jonas brothers sold 300K their first week and plummeted 88% in their second so the 2nd week drop is not only reserved for Madonna. Accept it and enjoy the success for what it is.

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

I keep thinking of this everytime she releases a new album. The biggest mistake of their career for the biggest megastar who graced this Planet. Long Live The Queen! 👑

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. 🙂

I'm mad because Immaculate Collection was held off at no 2 by one hit wonder Vanilla Ice album. He is in oblivion now but at least he was on the photos in Madonna Sex book. 🙂

That’s right LOL.  He probably has absolutely nothing left in the tank while Madonna just released one of her all time greatest albums.  So much love.

IT'S OFFICIAL! Madame X debuts at 1 with 95,000 units (90,000 in album sales)

https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/chart-beat/8517120/madonna-madame-x-No1-debut-billboard-200-chart

X marks the No. 1 spot.

Madonna lands her ninth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as Madame X enters atop the tally. The set, released via Interscope Records on June 14, launches with 95,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 20, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 90,000 were in album sales.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new June 29-dated chart, where Madame X bows at No. 1, will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on June 25.

Overall, Madame X’s debut sum of 95,000 equivalent album units is comprised of 90,000 in album sales, 1,000 in TEA units and 4,000 in SEA units.

Madame X grants Madonna her ninth leader on the Billboard 200. She last led the list in 2012, with MDNA. Here’s a look at all of Madonna’s No. 1 albums: Madame XMDNAHard Candy (2008), Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005), American Life (2003), Music (2000), Like a Prayer (1989), True Blue (1986) and Like a Virgin (1985).

Madonna continues to have the second-most No. 1 albums among female artists, trailing only Barbra Streisand, who has 11. Among all acts, The Beatles have the most No. 1s, with 19. They are followed by Jay-Z (14), Streisand and Bruce Springsteen (both with 11), Elvis Presley (10), Eminem, Garth Brooks, Madonna and The Rolling Stones (all with nine).

Madonna is a frequent visitor to the top 10 of the Billboard 200, having notched at least four top 10 albums in each of the last four decades (‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s and ‘10s). Madame X marks her 22nd top 10, and fourth of the ‘10s. Earlier in the decade, she reached the region with her last studio effort, Rebel Heart (No. 2 in 2015), MDNA (No. 1, 2012) and the live album Sticky & Sweet Tour (No. 10, 2010).

Madonna’s first top 10 came nearly 35 years ago, when her self-titled debut album climbed 12-10 on the Oct. 6, 1984-dated chart. It eventually peaked at No. 8 two weeks later (Oct. 20). The diva would place five top 10s in the ‘80s, seven in the ‘90s, six in the ‘00s and now four in the ‘10s.

The Rolling Stones have the most top 10s in the history of the Billboard 200, with 37. They are followed by Streisand (34), The Beatles (32), Frank Sinatra (32), Presley (27), Bob Dylan (22), Madonna (22), George Strait (21), Elton John (20), Paul McCartney/Wings (20) and Springsteen (20).

Madame X’s debut week was comprised of 90,000 in album sales, which is the fourth-largest sales week for an album in 2019 by a woman. The album’s sales were bolstered by a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with the Queen of Pop’s upcoming theater tour (starting on Sept. 12 in New York at Brooklyn's Howard Gilman Opera House), as well as an array of merchandise/album bundles sold via her official website.

Madame X was led by the track “Medellín,” with Maluma, which climbs 2-1 on the Dance Club Songs chart dated June 29, marking Madonna’s 47th leader on the tally. (The chart, like the Billboard 200, will refresh on Billboard’s website on Tuesday, June 25.) “Medellín” also reached the top 20 on the Hot Latin Songs chart.

Before Madame X dropped, four more preview cuts were issued: “I Rise,” “Future,” with Quavo, “Crave,” with Swae Lee, and “Dark Ballet.” “Crave” recently debuted on the Adult Contemporary airplay chart, and holds at No. 15 on the most recently published list (dated June 22). 

Congratulations Queen! Let's celebrate!:clap::clap::clap:

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!

 

Rebel Heart and Ray Of Light? #2

Empire OST blocked RH on a technicality if I'm not mistaken, just cannot remember about ROL

They are number 1 in the heart of so many Americans

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...

 

Exactly

Odd none of her 90’s albums went to #1.

Most importantly, in terms of this chart, enjoy this moment, in 2019, and, please- no dramatics for next week's chart and the inevitable big drop. Thanks. :gent:

 

Thank you!

Can't believe some fans are already worrying about that, can't her fans enjoy the moment for once without planning everything ahead or being a mathematician? I'm proud to have been a fan of this creative force to be reckoned with for the past 21 years, proud to see a person so invested and dedicated to every single thing she does, 36 years on, and showing heart and warmth, as well as humour, while doing it

Often times despite a certain viciousness of character her detractors keep displaying

Oh yes, Erotica and Bedtime Stories too? Odd indeed. All her studio albums deserve the privilege of landing atop the BB200

Ray of Light was held off at no 2 by Titanic soundtrack, the biggest selling album in 1998

It just still feels soo wrong to NOT see ROL, TIC and RH in that display. 😕 She should absolutely be at 12 #1s now. Maybe 11 (as AL was one of, if not her only album..the 1st one ever (at that point) that bombed far as 1st single, halted major momentum, not well received etc..) same with MDNA, I'd rather swap MDNA and AL w/ friggin ROL and TIC! Those 2 are just so iconic, impactful and drench from '#1 albums'. MDNA and AL don't lol. Her opening #s for AL were def. good but w/ how gargantuan rap in 2003 was (albums dropping w/ 500-700k easily on a typical week) be grateful she even got that one. It's still sad though to see how much Universal (post Warner) has harpooned her esp in Europe. I mean even up until another hit-less album MDNA she cleaned house with #1s worldwide. It's since MDNA that where at 'where' we're at.
