    She was around the #300 position some months ago.

    low playlisting it seems

    playlist reach:

    Music 1,453,245 (album version) + 1,360,720 (Celebration version) = 2,813,965 followers

    Frozen 41,457 (GHV2 version) 1,559,098 (album version) 1,731,438 (Celebration version) = 3,331,993 followers

    Ray Of Light 1,852,676 (album version) 60,247 (GHV2 version) 321,845 (Celebration version) = 2,234,768 followers

    Don't Tell Me 833,703 (album version) + 442,789 (Celebration version) = 1,276,492 followers

    The Power Of Good-Bye 1,287,588 followers


    but what surprised me the most its that Hung Up is her biggest song at the moment with a playlist reach of "only" 5 million spotify followers (LAP , MG and LAV are all above 9 million) , 3,298,410 (album version) 769,406 (radio version) + 998,038 (Celebration version) = 5,065,854 followers

    Not really as most African countries are very influenced by former "Metropoles" when they were their "colonies" and still have strong ties with them in almost all cases. When it comes to International artists in most African Countries what sells best is what's also big in their formal old European capitals as well (many countries there are less than 50 years old).

    Cape Verde, Angola, Mozambique, Guine, Sao Tome - all African countries that speak Portuguese and where "Madame X" was also a big hit as well. South Africa used to be part of UK and it's still a country where BBC is one of the most listened radios and most watched TV channels.

    I think access to any info from Africa is sketchy at best.

    Are you talking about chartmasters? Take all the info there with a big grain of salt as they miss a lot of data.
    They even say "Into To Groove" was not released in Canada when it sold 100k from cassete single and 12" as RPM stated.

    Most people in African countries have not much money or that much access to technology. Still Madonna is the best selling female artist and the most famous female artist in most African countries as well. I believe that after "Madame X" even more. Most her post iTunes albums were #01 in all African countries with iTunes.

    Music is the most shocking to me, considering the title track was massive and remains her last #1 in the US. The album doesn't even pull 100k streams a day. A shame because it's one of her best.

    So true. Whenever Madonna is featured in any playlist, it’s usually the same 5 songs (“Like a virgin”, “Like a Prayer “, “Material Girl”, “Hung Up” and “Holiday”). Her team should really push songs like “Deeper and Deeper”, “Secret”, “Take A Bow”, and “Rain” on playlists. In fact they should do a better job pushing A LOT MORE of her catalogue. That’s really how you increase her listeners and followers, don’t they know? It pisses me off “You’ll See” doesn’t get the attention it deserves. One of her best ballads ever.
    I don’t disagree but what are they supposed to do - call Spotify and ask nicely? Is it even Madonna’s team that should do this or Warner?

    It's clear by now that her team has no idea what they are doing--or they just don't care. They really should.

    According to Kworb, Speaking of YT daily average number, Madonna has done better than Mariah for the whole year ( except for Xmas period)

    her Spotify numbers are growing too

    Not bad at all .

    That's true--hopefully Frozen, Ray of Light and Power of Goodbye get added to more playlists. You'll See as well. It's her second best 90s ballad next to Take a Bow (imo).

Hard Candy and COADF do much, much better on streaming services.
