  • For those able to read French, here is my analysis of Madonna's single charts in France, a bit long (so many singles), but I hope that it will please you. I tried to refer to American and British charts as well. Enjoy the reading.

    And obviously I did mention the cancel culture episode that Madonna went through when she took side against Bush's War in Iraq and when Fox News made its best to have her cancelled. They succeeded on American radio. That's why BodyShop the American Life album flopped so much, including its Hollywood single.

    • Hollywood didn't get help from the VMAs cause it was completely overshadowed by the performance and the kiss. Same thing with Eurovision. Meanwhile Super Bowl was focused only in the artistic etc. aspect of the show, and had no controversy.
      Blue hydrangea, cold cash divine. Cashmere, cologne and white sunshine.
      Red racing cars, sunset and vine. And we were young and pretty.

        Of course! For those who don't know they own directly or undirectly over 70% of American Radios so they can control almost all US airplay if they want to.
        Cutting off Madonna almost completly off their radios was easy for them to do but it was impossible to cut Madonna of most other media and music shops.

            Yes, but airplay was important and counted for charts. Moreover, Madonna bashing reached a climax, as the singer was seen unamerican, after her statements against Bush. It killed her career. We saw that with Hung Up. Huge everywhere in the world, but not on American radio, despite decent sales. And by the way, she was no longe living in America. Those were the Guy Ritchie years.

              • I am well aware of how she was boycotted by radio in America dur to her political speech against Bush and everything that came after that in America.
                i have 2 things to say:
                1) it didnt "kill" her career in the United States. It kiled her radio support. Biggest proof of this is how Hung Up peaked at #7 on the Hot 100 despite being played nowhere.
                2) My point here is not to debate why American Life flopped. I'm only sharing my view on why it's a waste of time to try to make its singles visible to the public because they deserve some kind of justice..

                      I think it might be faster for Crazy For You, as it usually gets nice numbers around Valentine's Day!

                        • Biggest gains of the week besides Frozen Remix are 4 Minutes and Bitch Im Madonna. I think they may be the kind of songs the Frozen Remix listeners know about Madonna. Maybe Medellin is back on the top 30 because of that, too. Wonder if Crave is an option when Swae Lee remix will be released.

                          Also, Lucky Star. I think it's because everyone's watching Euphoria and it was featured on the first season.

                          • I would expect Frozen original version to see the biggest increase, but it is not the case....

                                i have 2 things to say:
                                1) it didnt "kill" her career in the United States. It kiled her radio support. Biggest proof of this is how Hung Up peaked at #7 on the Hot 100 despite being played nowhere.
                                2) My point here is not to debate why American Life flopped. I'm only sharing my view on why it's a waste of time to try to make its singles visible to the public because they deserve some kind of justice..
                                Well, Hung Up was #42 on the overall Billboard Airplay Chart, and, by genres: #17 on Pop, #16 on Adult Pop, #29 on AC, #1 on Dance Airplay and even #28 on Latin Pop.

                                It was definitely played somewhere... a lot actually.

                                It could have peaked higher than #7 on Hot 100 with more airplay support, but saying it had zero airplay is not true.

                                  dance airplay is small,there are only eight stations when chart established in 2005 #17 on mainstream top40 was OK

                                      BTW, new peak in streams in Lithuania, Germany and Austria. Let's see later today if it still managed to get a new peak WW... sadly it feels the song is losing strength (it's been leaving the charts in lots of countries on iTunes, Shazam, Apple Music and now Spotify).

                                        I just debuted in Apple Music France though! That's a big market!

                                        • I'm so frustrated with how out of touch Madonna's team is...

                                          1. her Spotify mess:
                                          Madonna's Spotify is so messy and mishandled it gives me a headache... all those versions of the same songs that aren't merged makes the streams get divided between identical versions and it's SO ANNOYING. and it's not like it's hard to fix, Mariah for example has all her Songs merged with similar versions from compilations
                                          for example:
                                          Holiday has 4 separated studio versions:

                                          Holiday (Madonna) 61,611,072
                                          Holiday (You Can Dance) 913,312
                                          Holiday (The Immaculate Collection) 6,669,481
                                          Holiday (Celebration) 59,627,930

                                          if her team was any decent these 4 would be merged under a single sum of 128,821,795

                                          and also remaining on the Spotify topic ... many of the songs there are so low quality, is her team so incompetent they can't upload the high quality CD versions ?


                                          2. the awful absence of strategy for the re-issues and promoting her past work

                                          Like A Prayer and True Blue both got reissues in their anniversaries in 2019 and 2021 respectively, and guess what they are only available to purchase DIGITALLY... a format that's been DEAD for over half a decade now.
                                          what's stopping her team from releasing them on Vinyl and CD, especially the True Blue reissue it has an amazingly beautiful cover, if released on vinyl i'm sure many collectors will buy it.

                                            that is basically nothing especially back in the day where Radio was much more important than now

                                              It was definitely played somewhere... a lot actually.

                                              It could have peaked higher than #7 on Hot 100 with more airplay support, but saying it had zero airplay is not true.
                                              So a song that was #01 for 2 weeks on Downloads/Digital Songs and 13 weeks on Single Sales was not even TOP 40 airplay hit. They blocked her as much they could and tried to disguise it.

                                              "Hung Up" was #42 on airplay the week after it's Hot 100 peak. The song debuted #01 on Single sales, Maxi-single sales and Download Songs and stayed #01 on al these charts 2 weeks (It was #01 on Single Sales for 13 weeks). After stepping down to #02 Download Songs (3rd week on the chart) it peaked on radio songs at #42 showing that some radios decided they had no choise but to play the song or give it a few more spins - Madonna was #01 on every sales charts for already 2 weeks and radios didn't know how long would she stay at #01 so they had no excuse not to play it. Also radio shows that play Billboard TOP 10 or TOP 40 Songs were now also playing the song that week as well increasing her radio plays.

                                              "Hunp Up" entered Radio Songs TOP 100 since early November and climbled slowly on the charts. The song was released in US later than in the rest of the world as was literally hitting #01 in every world country (it spent 3 weeks at #01 in UK being first week 15/11/2005 before peaking in US).

                                              Hung Up entered Hot 100 at #14 (the song biggest sales week) based mostly on sales as was still climbing slowly on radio (was already TOP 100 Radio Songs for 3 weeks but not yet inside the TOP 50). As the song was TOP 20 on Hot 100 some more radios picked up the song and play it helping it be #07 the following week. The airplay peak of #42 was the only week inside Radio Songs TOP 50 and happened the following week (5th TOP 100 Radio Songs and sales were still high but was no longer #01 on download charts - this was the 3rd week on Hot 100).The song was able to stay a second week at #07 due to that airplay peak as sales were falling a bit every week. After that week radio support was withdrawn in many stations that start playing the song less and less (or even at all). The following week (7th week of 11 at TOP 100 Radio Songs) the song was already out of this TOP 50 region Airplay chart falling to #14 on Hot 100 that same week. So the #42 airplay peak was the only week "Hung Up" spent on TOP 50 region Radio Songs.

                                              The song fell out of Radio Songs TOP 100 after just 11 weeks showing that radio support for the song was very low (the song spent more than 11 weeks in most European countries airplay chart TOP 10 region hitting #01 airplay in almost all of them. After 7 weeks on Hot 100 "Hung Up" falls to #21 despite still being #03 on Download Songs and #01 on Single Sales Charts (8th of 11 weeks inside airplay TOP 100).

                                              At the same time "Hung Up" was falling off the charts Mariah Carey "Don't Forget About Us" was climbing to #01 on Hot 100 based on Radio Songs hitting #01 on Hot 100 and Radio Songs the same week. Her song also peaked #01 for 1 week on Digital Song Sales that same week but remained another 5 weeks at #01 on Radio Songs (she never peaked #01 on Single Sales as "Hung Up" was still #01 and blocked it). "Don't Forget About Us" was #01 for only 2 weeks as sales dropped a bit It felt to #07 on 3rd week at #01 on Radio Songs and just climb back to another 2 weeks at #04 (while was still #01 at Radio Songs). At this time Madonna "Hung Up" was still on the charts at #43 now based almost only on Sales as it was out of Airplay TOP 100 for 4 weeks already (of course it still had some points from airplay but less and less every week).

                                              When "Sorry" debuted on HOT 100 "Hung Up" was still on the chart at #74 (her Grammy performance allowed the song to hang to chart TOP 50 region for longer).

                                                No one said it was an airplay hit or that radios played it right from the start, did I?
                                                But charting on the airplay chart, let alone peaking at #42, means it was played by radio… Top 20 on Pop and HAC.
                                                Which obviously denies the “it wasn’t played anywhere” theory.
                                                Just that. It’s a fact.


                                                That could be said about Hollywood or Love Profusion which were heavily ignored by radio after the AL backlash… or the following Confessions singles… but not about Hung Up.

And also was one of those songs that people knew regardless of how much airplay it got. Plus it got good play on those MTV video countdowns because that's how I knew about the song
