    So, she sold roughly 7 millions digital songs in the past 5 years (when the Glee article came out). Not bad, considering she had no big hits.

    Has anyone the total around SuperBowl performance?

        Wait, so billboard added certifications pre-1991 as sales?

          Nope, 28.2m according to Soundscan.
          The number includes RIAA certifications 1983-1991 (quite random calculation made by Billboard)

              Yes, they probably wanted to provide a comprehensive total, they cannot ignore Madonna's pre soundscan success when mentioning her album sales, though the final number is not precise at all

                WB oficially reported about 75M albums. Where did they miss 20M pre-1991 ?

                  They just added RIAA certifications through 1991 to Soundscan total, which lead to that inaccurate total

                    Don't know if this is the right place where to post these figures...

                    Celebration sales, March 2015, UK

                    01/03 — 38 — 2,476
                    08/03 — 38 — 2,450 est. (N. Gallagher #41 sold 2.359)
                    15/03 — 27 — 3,500 est. (Shires #23 sold 4.241)
                    22/03 — 31 — 2,800 est. (Modest Mouse #31 sold 3.010)
                    29/03 — 45 — 2,200 est. (Marina #44 sold 2.294)

                    So more than 13,000 in one month.
                    I'd love to see this album certified 2xP by the end of 2015...

                      RIAA certs are 64.5 million alone. Most of the missing numbers are club sales, which in the case of Madonna add up to more to several millions.

                      E.g, The Immaculate Collection got its 2 x Platinum cert in Jan 1991 but its 3 x Platinum didn't arrive until Dec 1991, after Soundscan was established. Soundscan = 5.8 million, so there's about 3 million copies floating around.

                        It's just for that one week. I don't think anyone has updated sales after its first week.

                          Exactly. We also know it sold 13k the week after the Grammy's. But no soundscan total was given unfortunately.
                          (Sales must be around 60-80k I believe)

                            No. All time.

                            28.2 million albums since SoundScan began in Jan. or March or May 1991.

                            and...

                            Madonna's 28.2 million does not include the Evita Sdtk. which has sales over 2,009,000 million.

                              Thanks! So her Soundscan total should be around 30.2m

                              I believe the 18.5m figure for digital tracks do not include Me Against the Music btw (which sold +300k)

                                      I have the end of week sales for last week's top 200, which also gives total amounts.

                                      Since The Immaculate Collection isn't present in the official chart, I unfortunately don't have an update for it. :x It would be fantastic to get total sales for that and to also know how much it's selling on a weekly basis.

                                          Yoshie, thanks for sharing the Celebration sales! I was also expecting a higher number but that 2 x Platinum cert will arrive sooner than later.
                                          Wonder if the DVD sales are also added to that number?

                                                  thanks, so what about the RIAA certifications for Madonna that are over 64 million or the WB report with 75M albums?

                                                  Comment


                                                  • ^WBR said 75 million. They have all the shipment records.

                                                    COADF is 1xP, but 1.7 million with SoundScan.

                                                    RIAA counts 1 million.

                                                    SoundScan counts 1.7 million.

                                                    That's where the difference is.
