How much have True Blue and Immaculate Collection sold overall? Sounscan, pre-Soundscan and Music Club sales? I was always curious.

^TIC is at 26 million worldwide. Some say 28 million, but that might be a bit high.

TIC should be priced at $7.99 at iTunes- it's seen a nice boost each time it's been that price. A price of $12.99 isn't going to do the trick, especially when M has nothing going on.

It's also $12.99 at Amazon- maybe in the future, it will sale-price it at $2.99 or $3.99. :lol:

TIC currently is at No. 125 on U.S. iTunes pop albums chart (it has been in the 170s-190s range a few days back when I checked). Imagine if it were selling for less than $12.99. :lol:

Celebration (single disc) is $5 at Amazon.com- not really ranked all that high, though (No. 222 on paid mp3 chart).

TAYLOR GAINS, RIHANNA RISES: With debuts on the Hot 100, Taylor Swift edges closer to the mark for the most career entries among women, while Rihanna equals an icon's output.

Rihanna launches at No. 57 with "Stay," featuring Mikky Ekko, and Swift arrives two notches lower as a duet partner with Tim McGraw on "Highway Don't Care."

With Swift scoring her 58th Hot 100 hit and Rihanna registering her 41st – tying Barbra Streisand – here is an updated look at the most Hot 100 visits among women in the chart's 54-year history:

73, Aretha Franklin
58, Taylor Swift
56, Madonna
56, Dionne Warwick
53, Connie Francis
48, Brenda Lee
44, Mariah Carey
42, Nicki Minaj
41, Rihanna
41, Barbra Streisand
40, Mary J. Blige
40, Diana Ross

There's so much wrong with that list.

If you were to take Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Taylor Swift - add their album sales together, and triple them - you still wouldn't reach Madonna's album sales. And you'd barely top Mariah's.

I hate how digital singles distort levels of success.

The list really doesn't have anything to do with album sales, but if you removed every song that only lasted on the chart for 1 week it would be very different, but if that was done, they would have to do it with so many other lists. It is what it is...but in the end...I'm sure down the line it's mentioned quite often that...what...20 of Taylors entries are one weekers.

For pop artists, a hit single is almost always needed to sell an album - its just that these days, you need a hit single to score another hit single. And after three hit singles, you might go platinum - if you're lucky.

Update:

Billboard wrote:Celine Dion’s 1999 compilation All The Way…A Decade In Song tops the 8 million mark. It’s the best-selling greatest hits album by a female solo artist in the Nielsen SoundScan era. (Madonna’s The Immaculate Collection is in second place. It has sold 5,845,000 copies since 1991. But that album was released in November 1990, so its tally is incomplete.)

To boot, Dion's album isn't even a full-on/regular greatest hits- it had nine older songs and seven new recordings.

Looks like TIC made some gains on U.S. iTunes- it's currently at No. 108 on the poop albums chart- still at $12.99.

It is still a greatest hits though lol...

I do wish they'd packed it with her hits only though, like Immaculate.

Looks like Amazon listened to us now that TIC is now at a random $3.96 price tag for the entire MP3 Download :lol: Just took effect and is at 2,108 on MP3 Downloads but we should expect a nice boost soon enough.

On a separate note, not only has MDNA not gone down in price, but has now increased to $15.99 for the Deluxe to download on iTunes and Amazon :roll:
