    Really, why these comparisons?
    The Weeknd sold 400k+ the first week during the pandemic, Dua's sales wouldn't have been much higher considering she'a a streaming artist and 40 years younger. I like her but she's not a big seller yet. Also, her mentioning months ago that she was inspired by Madonna, doesn't mean it boosted Hung Up or Confessions on a Dance Floor. I don't even remember her saying which album/era she was inspired from. Like a Prayer got boosted on Youtube too, her videography got boosted and it happens from time to time.

    I was living in NYC in the year 2000. American Pie was a non-event there.

    Lots of big sellers Europe performed badly in the USA.

    AP would be a certainty. It reached #29 based on airplay only. It was more than a good seller in the rest of the world, so there's no reason to think it wouldn't sell at least moderately in the USA, which is all that would be needed to push it Top 10.

    Plus Beautiful Stranger and American Pie. Those two would also have reached top 10 without an inch of doubt,had physical copies been issued for them back then.

    One thing is to have 38 top10 singles, another thing is to have 38 top10 random songs, tbh.
    This kind of records lost their credibility when album tracks were allowed to chart, in the download era, imho.
    I mean, we can’t really compare physical era (with singles prevented from charting because airplay only was not enough, and a physical support was needed) with physical + airplay, with downloads, and with streaming... only because the chart did not change its name.

    Obviously ... specially when most of it came from ticket bundles she would have likely had to cancel the tour (which means no tickets bundles), with companies closed and refusing to ship at the moment there wouldn’t be a way to buy physical copies either and without streaming on her side to rely solely on that it’s only logical to conclude that MX would have pulled disastrous numbers had she released her album right now like Dua Lipa did.

    3 weeks later and Im Going to Tell You a Secret is still removed from Spotify. They really just refuse to let us have our cake and eat it to.

    A lead single will (in most cases - specially for veteran artists) have more buzz and hype than a 3rd single and in Madonna’s case in particular that’s been a pattern for years now...

    ... a 3rd single generally doesn’t get as much instant hype and buzz than a lead single (this doesn’t have to be confused with outperforming) a 3rd or 4th single might end up outdoing the previous singles but requires a more progressive and gradual performance over time in order to do so without necessarily having the first weeks high numbers and attention instant effect the lead single benefits from.

    In plenty occasions the lead single will have it easier to peak high and in many eras (not all of course) remains as the most impactful single from the album hardly matched by the subsequent singles. occasions where second or 3rd singles have done better happen but that’s the minority of cases and no what’s usual. A Lead single will mostly have advantage over the other singles.

    Cause it was blocked and since it got unblocked it's rising. On Spotify it's bigger than You'll See by far.

    Not really. BIM was released when streaming wasn’t as big as it is today while “Medellin” was released at the height and peak of the streaming era. It’s very normal and nothing extraordinary that recent songs pull higher numbers than older songs with more ease, actually the fact that “Medellin” hasn’t surpassed BIM’s streams on Spotify is quite a bad indicator. Also, let’s not forget that “Medellin” was a LEAD single and featured latin sensation Maluma ... while BIM was a 3rd single without all the hype, buzz and impact of a lead single.

She still has some videos in 240p quality on her channel. I mean 240p in 2020. That's not even old TV resolution from back when those videos were released. Now that she has a channel things are a bit better, but there's lots they can do to improve her numbers.
    Yeah her channel management hasn’t helped either.

    US (top Hot 100 solo artist of all time)
    Australia (most #1 singles by a female, and most #1 albums by a female)
    Canada (most #1 singles by any act!)
    Germany (most #1 albums by a female artist)
    Italy (most #1 singles by a female)
    Japan (most top ten albums by any foreign artist)
    Spain (most #1 singles by a female)
    UK (most #1 singles by a female, and most #1 albums by a female)

    If only Brazil had an official charts in the eighties, should would have definitely broke records there as well.
    What a career!
    Yes, truly amazing! Still gutted that Drake seems to break records like it's nothing. Says a lot about Billboard's chart rules, and how much they have changed. Back in the day, both, labels and Billboard were very strict on what was allowed to chart (limiting songs on the main hot 100 to actual single physical releases, etc.), now basically any song on album charts. Imagine if all of Madonna's tracks had charted back in the day, somehow. Even "Jimmy, Jimmy" would've made a chart appearance LOL

    Billboard Top Touring Artist of the Decade (2010s):
    (rank 1-6 is still unrevealed)
    Beyonce (#7)
    P!nk (#12)
    Lady Gaga (#17)
    Madonna (#20)
    Celine Dion (#21)
    Rihanna (#38)
    Katy Perry (#40)
    Cher (#44)
    Britney Spears (#47)

    I guess Taylor Swift was the top touring female of the 2010s decade. Madonna was the top female for the 2000s decade (behind only The Rolling Stones and U2). If only Madame X Tour had been an arena/stadium tour, she would have ranked much higher.

    Real arguments and examples are anger to you?

    You can respect RH streams without skewing things though.
