    Happy to see Bitch Im Madonna back on her top 10 most streamed songs on Spotify after awhile.

    I think it's there for the first time since Carpool Karaoke.

    So, after this discussion I decided to track Madonna's numbers on Spotify. I merged the numbers from different albuns (Like a Prayer and its singles are spread in 3 albuns with different numbers of plays, so I put them all together to see the real popularity of each song and orginal album).


    Here are the studio album streams:


    1 - Like a Virgin - 237,7kk
    2 - Rebel Heart - 185,3kk
    3 - Like a Prayer - 156,4kk
    4 - True Blue - 147,7kk
    5 - Hard Candy - 135,2kk
    6 - Confessions on a Dance Floor - 130,7kk
    7 - Madonna - 101,6kk
    8 - Ray of Light - 88,8kk
    9 - MDNA - 72,2kk
    10 - Music - 62,8kk
    11 - American Life - 37,6kk
    12 - Bedtime Stories - 35,5kk
    13 - Erotica - 25,2kk


    And her Top10 most popular songs:


    1 - Like A Prayer - 118.2kk
    2 - Material Girl - 98,0kk
    3 - 4 Minutes - 97,2kk
    4 - Like A Virgin - 86,0kk
    5 - Vogue - 72,9kk
    6 - Hung Up - 71,3kk
    7 - La Isla Bonita - 66,3kk
    8 - Holiday - 51,7kk
    9 - Bitch I'm Madonna - 51,1
    10 - Into The Groove - 35,2kk


    BONUS: Frozen - 32,0kk

    * 3 videos and more daily views overall than Whitney, Mariah and Celine.

    No one is upset, you are ignoring the facts. Madonna missed 10 years of having proper youtube channel, and she still doesn't have one.

    Madonna obviously doesn't have much streaming presence, nobody is denying that. Go to Madonna thread and you'll see we talked about possible first week sales of her new album today and nobody is giving it huge streaming numbers in their predictions.

    But to call her irrelevant and not respected and then tie that into low streams as if that's the reason. It's wholly wrong. 0 logic in that and highly delusional. Madonna's weakness in streaming comes from a whole another angle - her being an older artist whose fan base didn't adapt to streaming and she has trouble breaking through to younger music consumers who prefer streaming. It's not something exclusive to Madonna, but nearly all older acts.

    My observation was only towards ROL and "Music" tho . . . specially "Music", so don't make a big deal about it.

    I do think some of her albums have quite decent streams considering her situation and all the stuff you listed. But "Music" particularly did shock me and I can't find a logical reason for it's low streams, IMO any album with a huge popular hit on it shouldn't have an issue reaching the 100m mark and take into consideration that 100m streams for an album is not really a major milestone anymore in this day and age, it's a reasonable moderate amount you expect from an album that had popular hits in a streaming world where we have albums reaching billions streams, it's not really that much of a wild thought to think an album can reach 100million streams.

    In order for you to understand what I mean look at this

    These were her 3 successful albums from the 2000s decade (2000-2009) as of December 21, 2018 (2,5 months ago):

    Music (2000): 46,973,376
    Confessions On A Dance Floor (2005): 120,115,141
    Hard Candy (2008): 127,184,943

    All had at least one major global hit ("Music", "Hung Up", "4 Minutes") but notice how distant "Music" is compared to the other two . . that's what I mean, "Music" particularly is extremely low and quite forgotten.

    Also "Confessions" and "Hard Candy" streams fit well with her 80s numbers (as of the same date, Dec 21, 2018):

    Like A Virgn (1984) - 179,717,886
    True Blue (1986) - 137,117,309
    Like A Prayer (1989) - 145,638,631

    While the "Music" album on the other hand had just 11million more streams than "American Life" (album) . . .


    Music (2000) - 46,973,376
    American Life (2003) - 35,462,764

    let's be real Westen, "Music" (album) shouldn't be that close to "American Life" (album).

    --

    So it's not really about Madonna being relevant or not, it's just about the fact that there seems to be a terrible issue with the "Music" album.

To be honest "Music" was a bigger chart hit song back in 2000 than other huge tunes from that year such as Bon Jovi's "It's My Life" or Britney's "Oops I Did It Again". So nope, I wasn't expecting the streams for that album to be that low.

    Also "Confessions" has streams on par with her 80s albums, which means that your argument about her Post-80s stuff not having a chance is not entirely true. "Confessions" managed to get as much streams as her 80s albums because her song "Hung Up" is remembered and streamed, something that for some reason didn't happen with the "Music" single.
    Madonna is irrelevant and not respected, simple as that. People who use Spotify are not going to search for Madonna song.
    She's not dead so her catalog is yet to receive push,and she also doesn't have Xmas classic that would push her number of listeners and generally catalog. On top of that she's just a pop act and let's not pretend like GP is dying for pop females.

    She missed almost whole digital era, and she missed streaming era, failing to adapt to youtube era thanks to her channel and that only transferred to Spotify.

    But her catalog is still spread better than Mariah's, Celine's or Whitney's who have very few top songs and then the difference between biggest ones and the rest is huge, at least Madonna's numbers are spread.

    Don't compare her to Britney, Britney belongs to different era and her audience are still young adults, and don't compare her to rock artists. We've all seen numbers for hiphop and rock artists on Spotify.

    You know all these facts you just want to point out how she's doing terrible.

    Streaming is not refection of remembered classics, it's reflection of artists' current status and hype.

    I guess you read that on Wikipedia, but it was actually in 1989, not 1999.

    As you can see here, on the official website for Irish charts and certs (not updated in years, unfortunately), in 1992 IRMA already existed.

    http://www.irishcharts.ie/charts_his...ts_history.htm

    Pre-1992 Irish charts were based on shipments to stores. Since 1992, on actual sales.

    So that list is, probably, from 1992 onwards.

    Judging by the fact that US is the biggest consumer of Spotify, and 80s is her biggest decade, what did you expect?

    I find this 'I am shocked by the fact that Madonna's singles and albums from her later years are not doing as her biggest albums and songs from her peak decade!!! Madonna is the only one!!11' rather transparent.

    . . But it's clear that albums such as "Like A Virgin", "True Blue", "Like A Prayer" and "Confessions On A Dancefloor" are her among her best performers on Spotify, at least all of them have over 100million streams on Spotify which means the hit singles featured on those albums get played a lot and are relatively remembered.

    But for "Music" and "Ray Of Light" the story is totally different, just a few months ago "Music" (album) had not even reached 50million streams yet which I find tragic considering how successful and acclaimed the album was, and it also goes to show that it's singles are largely forgotten these days despite featuring a massive #1 hit song ("Music") another Top 10 hit ("Don't Tell Me") and a huge global hit featured on international editions ("American Pie"). "Ray Of Light" (album) is doing a bit better but hasn't reached the 100million streams (I think).

    I can understand why "Erotica", "Bedtime Stories" and "American Life" get low / tragic level streams . . . But out of all of her big successful albums ("Madonna", "LAV", "TB", "LAP", "ROL", "Music", "COADF") "Music" and "Ray Of Light" are performing the worst which I found really shocking.

    And streaming obviously had impact on that since that remix few years ago gave her song life on Spotify.

    Anyways, I was checking the last update of her Spotify numbers and judging by what I saw I have to say that "Erotica", "Bedtime Stories" and "American Life" are largely forgotten by the public ("American Life" was expected tho).

    But perhaps what suprised me the most was the terribly low streams for great acclaimed and successful albums such as "Ray Of Light" and "Music". That was painful to see considering those are IMO her finest records and I remember them being extremely popular back in the day.

    I do find a bit weird that not that many Pre-1995 albums are in the list tho, Streaming units probably added a lot of advantage to newer albums.

    I wouldn't be surprised if these are only post 1994 sales since Madonna's 80s albums are missing. And we know that UK sales for pre-1994 are lost.
