  • Sacha

    I am addicted to MDNA.
    I love it and i can’t wait to see the show..

  • candystore

    this week sales:

    us: 14k
    uk: 6k
    france: 5k
    germany 5k
    japan: 6k

    = 36k with other countries she should do 60-70k this week worldwide. down to 22 in uk midweek chart. they really screwed this era in uk.

    • I lost my reputation in Hollywood

      Yikes, her sales are really dropping. I think this is her best album since Confessions & Music, it’s a shame it’s not resonating. With her USA sales down to 14K, it’s doubtful it’s even going to go GOLD.
      Her only fan base that’s buying her music is gay men in there 30’s and 40’s, no young people are buying her music in large enough numbers, and she doesn’t appeal to music buyers in her age range.
      I’m depressed, I need to lay down,,,,,,

      • candystore

        well i’m 18 and i love madge. there is young fans but not enough. or maybe some young people are shamed to like madonna because she’s not young like rihanna or katy?

      • Peppergrison

        or may be there are too many downloading it … for free :-(

      • i remember good music from m

        or maybe the album is just not good enough??

        wake up people, m´s music is really mediocre since hard candy…

        and i hope she finds herself again for the next album, there is still hope

      • Boy Gone Bi

        I think MDNA is so much better than Hard Candy, I still think HC has ruined her reputation. The only thing lacking with MDNA is there really isn’t a strong song on it to release as a single that would be a hit.

  • FROZEN

    I AGREE WITH SOME OF YOU “MDNA” IS NOT HER BEST ALBUM ACTUALLY IT ISN’T AS GOOD AS I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BUT IT IS A GOOD ALBUM. JUST GOOD.

  • JustifymySOUL

    that women is ahead of this time again, it’s so hard to understand why didn’t she do any Promo for this album yet in fact When you go or watch her TOUR you indeed will appreciate a lot this album , and everyone could download the album so easy indeed , music sales are not effective anymore , i’m sure what’s she doing and at the end of all , she’ll win this challenge with best grossing tour of all the time! no matters what haters say because that women is so talented to make super Show !! need fact??? watch the Superbowl event , just enjoy the Tour !

  • kirpop

    what concerns me its not the album its not selling well, but the tour is selling below expectations …

    • Peppergrison

      Everything I’ve read is saying the opposite, shows are selling very well.

  • GGWWGG

    quicker than a ray of light, mdna will be gone…

    • Peppergrison

      this kind of light you can’t stand, you are too dark inside !
      too bad for U it is not going to fade anytime soon

  • superstar?

    mdna is hot mess, except a couple of songs

    • Peppergrison

      the kind of hot mess everyone is trying to copy, standing on top for 30 years..

      • EVERYBODY

        but madonna is just as generic with her mdna album as the rest of the bunch

  • L4jo1e

    I don’t know why people buy ticktes for tour, but not the album..

    For example : here in Canada, near 170,000 tickets sold for the tour, but ONLY 32,000 copies of MDNA.

    Same thing for Italy : 125,000 tickets sold, but 50,000 copies of MDNA.

    That’s something I can’t get it..

    • Tomek

      You can’t download tickets illegally, can you ? That’s why :-) People don’t buy music anymore, they download it for free.
      Let’s wait for new albums big artists and we’ll see how much they sell, then compare to MDNA and I’m sure we are gonna see MDNA as a big success.

      • Peppergrison

        :-)

      • L4jo1e

        Yes it’s true, but when you go see an artist on stage, it’s a mark of respect to buy the album, just to go in the mood of the show no ? Anyway.. maybe they will buy it after seen the show !

      • artis

        yes, the sales will raise during the tour. many people will buy the album after they see the show…

    • Sacha

      illegal download!!! cheaper…anyway..as far as i am concerned i have:

      mdna 12 songs
      mdna deluxe version
      mdna japanese edition
      mdna vinyl…

      but in the end you have to wait…the tour’s gonna start and a lot of people who are not properly fans will buy the record after the show..

      • mike

        why did you bought all these versions did you think Madonna is a poor new entry artist who needs you support??

      • Sacha

        to Mike:
        first of all it’s my money and i do what i want with it..
        second of all i have a collection of everything Madonna did, does and will do…
        third..no madonna is not a new entry She is the only living legend worth the name of icon

    • Bring Out

      @Mike, is it really that difficult for brain to understand the fact that some people collect? I thought it was a simple notion to grasp

      Basically there reason why you can log on youTube and watch old never-seen before clips of anything you is because of people the collectors more often than not or most of the times (like Sacha). When you google pictures of old coins or stamps etc…the reason why you can see the pics is also because of collectors (outside of what museums, archives or the state have). This is why people’s grand children are making millions out of one stupid (or so it seems) old coin that their grand-parents tucked away

      It has nothing to do with the artist needing money. While we live in a digital age and it seems that everything physical is losing its value, 40-50 years from now, say that madonna is dead and the future gadget is in vogue, people will pay BIG bucks for those items that appear to have been lost or forgotten. And the people who won’t have money to purchase will at least be able to see a picture.
      With everything becoming more and more digital, 50 years from now people won’t give a shit about mp3s and digital files.What you own that’s physical is what’s gonna become an asset

      When someone collects, he’s not only satisfying his need but he’s ALSO doing a service to the future generations. SO we NEED collectors
      I wish I had the discipline or the money to collect.

      • Madgefan

        Yes, I have been buying every single, remix and albums since she started as I like to have a complete collection of her work.

        It’s like her ‘Sex’ book. It’s becoming harder to find a pristine or unopened copy and they are going for a few hundred pounds on ebay now. No, I would never sell mine :)

        Plus I like to have physical copies of everything, I download music too of course, but there is nothing like having the actual physical album.

  • Tomek

    People are moaning about MDNA positions but they simply are lack of facts, when you compare MDNA do Erotica or Bedtime Stories they will see that MDNA is much bigger success.

    Bedtime Stories

    • mdntica

      well, forget numbers…

      i will never listen to mdna in 20 years…(i already quit listening it)
      but i still listen erotica

      • madgefudger

        I won’t discuss taste too much, but I remember not liking erotica too much. I rediscover it and found a true gem. I can’t stop listening to MDNA, and something tells me I will continue to listen to it for a very long time. Hopefully you will rediscover it. MDNA is an excellent album.

  • Hilly

    1 million sold in a month is a great achievement considering there’s been barely any promotion/big hit single, and radio airplay has been poor here in the UK, a Tarantino Gang Bang video would boost MDNA, as I’m sure the tour will, can’t wait for July!

    • sec_ZURW_17734

      forget it that there will ever be a tarantino-video – this is much too expensive. the girl gone wild video has already been not very expensive……..

  • Tomek

    Overall good positions for MDNA. Don’t forget that there is still lots of promotion. Few singles, maybe TV performances ( X factor, Grammy or something like this ), maybe she won something and that boost selling, you never know whats happen. And big tour, wherever she goes, every city, there will be big promotion for MDNA, and people will buy more and more.

    Look at latest albums artists like Christina Aguilera, Kylie Minogue, Beyonce or Britney Spears, they all sold 1-2 million of albums. These days only new artist like Lady Gaga and Rihanna can sell more, because they are doing massive TV promotion.

    But at the end of the day that’s Madonna who earn the most money and no matter how many albums other singers sell there is only one queen and that’s Madonna.

    • sec_ZURW_17734

      ha! as for gaga her record label till today declined to publish sales numbers for her second album born this way. there are only rumors (of fans) who say that she may have sold 8 mio copies. but there are no true numbers from universal, so it’s obvious that the true numbers are much lower than the expected.

      than take the massive promotion, the 99cent-give-away at amazon……and overall this album was not such a big sucess as gaga-fans always try to make it. and that’s only her second album.

      madonna’s careers just started with her second album selling more than 20 mio units worldwide and making her a big superstar.

      • Tomek

        You are right. It makes me laugh when people compare second Gaga’s album to 12 th Madonnas.
        Throughout 30 years Madonna has to ” fight ” with hundreds of artists. Where is today Michael Jackson, George Michael, Whitney Houston, Prince ( 80’s ), where is grunge Nirvana, Pearl Jam, where is Brit pop Oasis, Pulp, Blur ( 90’s ), etc. etc.

        Does anybody remember who won MTV Video of the year in 1990 ? Madonna’s Vogue ? No – Sinead O’Connor. But who cares about Sinead anymore?
        The list is endless, and after all these years, all this changes in music history MDNA reaches the top in so many countries that we all fans should be proud of.

        Anyone remember New Kids on the block or Backstreet boys ? teenagers loved them, the same is with artist like Lady Gaga. She is typical teenage artist. When her fans grew up, she will end up like mentioned boys band.

      • LUCA

        To Tomek..I agree with everything you said but not for what you said about Ainéad O’connor…I REALLY CARE ABOUT HER…she is a wonderful ARTIST

      • Tomek

        LUCA, you did get me wrong. I really like Sinead O’Connor, as well as George Michael, but I don’t this that they are competitors to Madonna these days. I just wanted to indicate that throughout 30 years there were lots of artists that were Madonna rivals but at the end of the day she is the only one still alive and kicking only new artists are added to the list. in 2022 Madonna will release her 16th album, nobody will remember who Gaga was, but there will be new young acts, and everybody will complain about Madonna, but she will still be the Queen of Pop, how sweet ;-)

      • KC

        I would also like to state that I still care for Sinead O’Connor. Her latest album released this year is simply brilliant, although it was released to less fanfare than Madonna’s. But I’m sure she’s quite content with that, because making a lot of money was never her ambition in the music industry. However, I don’t think Sinead nor many of the artists you listed were Madonna rivals or people she had to “fight with.” They existed quite well among each other. People tend to create rivalries where one doesn’t even exist. Fans of Madonna are going to like whatever she puts out, regardless of who else is on the charts.

  • lip-sync galore

    very solid for a queen LoL

  • sec_ZURW_17734

    overall a very good chart performance for the album – it has been a world wide no1 and top 10 hit! outside of the us the album has a lot of chart power!! go on madonna

  • DARETZIS

    GREECE 1-2-1 AGAIN !!!!!!!!!ONLY IN GREECE WE KEEP MADONNA IN NO 1 !!!

    • Tomek

      That’s why she is not going to Greece promote MDNA. It’s all your fault !
      I’m joking of course ;-) but there is something in this anyway…

  • Kane

    A HUGE FLOP

    • LUCA

      exactly like you since the day you were born

    • MDNA4EVA

      That’s what your mum said when she looked between her legs during your birth.

    • Rodrigo

      No, the flop is your brain!

  • isack

    a live performance will do this album a lot of good , that is where madonna is at her best ! luv madonna

  • M4Matt

    What are the numbers in parentheses?

    • MDNA4EVA

      # of copies sold. For instance, in the US it sold 428,176 copies. The gap in between the #s is confusing

  • M4Matt

    “I’m a Sinner” is smash hit material. The controversy would take a back seat to its overall brilliance.

    • MDNA4EVA

      It’s one of my favorite songs on the CD

  • fake tits and a nasty mood

    singles:
    turn up the radio, gang bang, i´m addicted, love spent

    • lois_lisbon

      best friend , beautifull killer , i’m fucked up ))

        I’m fucked up too!!

    • Boy Gone Bi

      My favs are Girl Gone Wild, I’m a Sinner, Love Spent, I don’t give a

  • Jason tells it like it is!

    I’m glad that it’s stalled at No.13 in the UK…. now all Interscope need to do is get those bloody ‘GGW’ physical/iTunes/Amazon releases on the shelves/online in the and maybe we’ll see it climb….. speaking of which, anyone when they’re gonna be released (in the UK)?

    hopefully the rumoured Billboard performace will see it shoot back up the charts too!

    • fake tits and a nasty mood

      interscope fucks up, as usual…

    • madgefudger

      What is the rumored Billboard performance? Is the album staying tin the top 20?
