Well it was #1 for weeks on Billboard's Hot 100, and beating out the record held by "Like A Virgin"
So you think TAB is a bigger hit than LAV because it spent 7 weeks at the top instead of 6?I don't even consider TAB as one of M's many classic hits...
Weeks spent at #1 had a LOT to do with the way charts were calculated back then that's why i don't think of TAB as her biggest hit...actually i don't think anyone does.
Actually he produced her most SUCESSFUL song to date which was "Take A Bow".....
TAB is soooo not Madonna's most successful song to date...radio played the sh*t out of it but that was it,its sales weren't that impressive...
Songs like Like a Vrigin,Like a Prayer,Vogue and i would even say Music were much bigger hits than TAB.
Does anyone have the market shares for the digital market? It would be interesting to know how many percent I-tunes is and if the Amazon downloads really matter that much.
A few years ago Itunes represented 85% of the digital market...i'm sure it has changed since then but not that much.
So do all 3 count toward the same total of downloads of 4 MIN?
Of course!This is great!
Now you tell me! I smashed every god forsaken plate in my house!
I can just picture the chaos next week as soon as Mariah's #1 spot is announced!
BECAUSE I HATE HER FUGLY GUTZ./
That's cool and all but some of you are acting like it's the end of the world or something,it's just a music chart...nothing more,nothing less...Madonna is doing great,that's what we should be celebrating.
What's up with these ppl obsessing over Mariah's placing??Let Mariah have her #1...it's not like she's blocking Madonna from the top or anything like that...
All 3 units inside the itunes Top 100 now!
Whoa!!!I missed the other 2 versions!Thanks for the update!
Digital sales of 80K would not be enough for top 5 on the digital chart-
Yeah,i think Janet's Feedback sold 80K 2 weeks ago and landed at #8.
I just checked and the Estelle song is at #12 on the airplay charts...so maybe that's why it's selling better...4min got it's first on monday,right?
Yeah the Estelle track is new and was released 1 day before Madonna's and is selling a lot more than her
Someone else from the UK said that Estelle's song was released on friday...?
And btw,when was this song serviced to radios in the UK?Also,is the video already out?
No one should expect a #1.
A Top 10 is very likely.
I agree...i could even see 4min reaching the top 10 the week after going on sale,but #1?No...
i know the UK, Denmark, Norway, Sweden is different but we saw it climb fast to #2 and #1 and it was released THE SAME WEEK TO RADIO...
it is really hard to tell but it is a possibility...
Well yeah,Hung Up made it's way into the top 3 pretty fast but what i'm trying to say is that no one should expect 4min to outsell touch my body next week...the song has close to 100M Aud.Imp.,Mariah will perform the song on a very popular teen show on monday,the video's been out for a few weeks too...
The only thing Madonna has going on for her is that they're 3 HUGE artist with a big fanbase...the song's still too new...
Guys,i think expecting this song to debut or skyrocket to #1 in 2 weeks is totally unrealistic...i could see it happening in a slow chart week or maybe in a month or so if the song keeps on growing at this rate and really connects with the masses,but with only 2 weeks of airplay,no video and lets not forget the Mariah,Usher,Leona competition, i really don't see it happening at all.I mean,it would need to sell around 250,000 to be able to hit #1 in 2 weeks...do you really think that's going to happen?
what do you mean hot 100 bubbling under??? It will dubut at least on the top 50 next week....Its already around number 42 on airplay alone, mariah had similar numbers and debuted at number 57.
I think you're confusing Billboard's Hot 100 airplay chat with Mediabase's pop chart...
Discipline's to-date tally is around 239,000. JJ has a Saturday Night Live performance this weekend, but that probably won't cause a boost (maybe a lesser loss)- she also appeared on SNL for the Damita Jo album a couple weeks after its release. Also may have for 20 Y.O.
She's no longer doing SNL. she dropped out of the show just a few days ago.
Took this from the BS thread:
"Gimme more" will be the number one so far. In four days, the song has sold more than 140.000 downloads, 40% more than Soulja Boy.
Top 5 @ 28/09/2007 - 16:33:
1. Gimme More - Britney Spears (142.396)
2. Crank That - Soulja Boy Tell 'Em (102.005)
3. Stronger - Kanye West (89.559)
4. 1234 - Feist (83.336)
5. How Far We've Come - Matchbox Twenty (82.953)"

I don't know how accurate this is...
Her record label is expecting 150,000 the first week.
Really?But i recall reading somewhere that as of friday the single had already sold 142.000 downloads...
Oh i see,so #1 is pretty much out of the question...i think the single will sell close to 250,000 this week.
Aud Imp will probably peak in the next few weeks,i don't see this track reaching more than 50M aud imp...
Will probably top out with a HU-like peak.
Would 200,000 or so downloads be enough for GM to reach the top?Cause i can certainly see her selling close to that amount,don't u?
I got this from mmad:
Warner and Madonna gave power over to NBC to re edit the show as they see fit, that was a deal breaker for NBC and if Madonna did not sign on it they would pass on the offer to get the tour on their network.
Warner made it very clear how strongly Madonna feels about the cross part of her show and NBC promised to do whatever they can to leave it intact.
Early today NBC told Warner they decided NOT to air the "Live To Tell" part of the show as a respect to a wide and devoted audience.
Warner "leaked" info to the media saying Madonna will back off and won't let them air the show at all (knowing she can't really do that as shes under contract with NBC) moreover they alerted the media about a press release due out today from Madonna ahead of one from NBC due out in a few days revealing their decision.
Calls and emails to NBC to conform the news "laked" by Warner were returned late Thursday without a clear response and insisted they are still reviewing the show submitted by Warner last night.
In any case we can rest assure the show WILL air this November (22nd as of now) with or without the Cross.
Warner Music tells MADONNAdownload a DVD will be released IN FULL this December as well as an HD DVD.
The same source said "there are no planes for a RIT DVD at this time".
Why didn´t she mention Steven Bray during her R&R Hall of Fame speech???
in ARCHIVE - Madonna
LMAO...denial? Even Hung Up sold more than Take a Bow in the US...i repeat,TAB may have spent the most weeks at #1 but that hardly makes it her biggest hit.
Let me ask you something,do you consider Mariah's Honey a bigger hit than say,Shania's You're still the one(wich actually never hit #1)?
