  • The fact that it's charting in France is such a pleasure to me. It's my country and I'm so happy to know she's been charting for a few weeks here!
    This is the best thing that has ever happened to her veteran artist career, and I mean it. Thank you Sickick for making this possible!

    I hope she releases the remix album soon with a few hot collabs. It will help her catalogue streams increase even more and create hype for her biopic.

    Her next album's numbers will definitely be interesting to watch. I know she can't smash anymore - but she's gaining a new audience and so much respect with the new generation.

      They are not, Warner just like any record label uses shipments and inflates its artists numbers to promote them.
      Madonna sold over 200m albums/greatest hits wich is already a terrific result.

        yes, record labels often inflate their artists numbers for promotional purpose as the GP has no idea about charts or what sales are more realistic , also they can merge singles and album sales wich is probably what the almost 300m ""albums"" really refers.

                  No, they are referering just to ALBUMS! Maybe albums are still shy from 300 millions and they are trying to get there but were at over 275 million by 2009 already as we can read there.

                  Of course they were talking about ALL ALBUMS (studio albums, OST and compilations) - 75 million in US is not much (she already had 63 or 64 million certifications in US by 2009 makes total sense - she was already undercertified on some of her albums (and some albums may take a long time to get a new certification and still can have huge sales besides the certs - as "You Can Dance" that may very well be at 1,9 million and that's 900k not certified album sales - but to get another 100k will take much time and that may mean decades until it gets a new certificaiton.

                  If this included singles wouldn't make sense as she already had 18 million certified (and we know that at least another 18 million from US alone not certiffied by - only "Like a Virgin" single that is certified for 500k have articles stating sales were already 1.9 million from 1985!

                  How did Madonna managed to sell over 200 million albums outside US? Is it possible? Of course it is - especially when she is much probably more undercertified in other countries (compared to US)!

                  Most countries don't update her certifications since the year the albums were released and there isn't many information from sales back in the day.


                  Madonna sold over 23 million albums in UK - it's a fact based on the known data we have (still her certifications are around 20 million only as older albums are not automatically re-certified only new releases - older releases would need to get at least 300k ditigal + streaming to get a new platinum cert automatically).

                  Madonna album certifications in Germany are over 11 million but almost her albums were last certified when released (or 1 year within the release). Madonna real sales in Germany may very well even be around 20 million (we have no idea of the real updated number there)

                  We know Madonna sold over 12 million albums in Italy (including over 1.5 million from "True Blue" but that number is already from 1987 - the best selling album by a foreign artist in Italy certainly didn't sold ZERO copies during the past 35 years). Almost all Madonna album in Italy haven't been certified since release. But that happens almost in every country.

                  Same can be said from almost EVERY WORLD country except US, UK and Canada that are the only countries where Madonna got a few sales updates on her certifications along the way and is still undercertified as we know.

                  I know for a fact that Madonan sales in Portugal (where I live) are not much as we are a small country but almost all her albums need to be re-certified in my country and sold at least twice what her certificiatons are now - some even sold almost 3 times her current certifications!). I mean "Erotica" is still only certified silver (10k) but it already had sales of almost 20k when ROL was released (and certainly sold more after that). Even ROL and MUSIC albums when were certified Platinum in Portugal had sales already well over 60k (Platinum was 40k at the time). "Madame X" sold over 15k in Portugal and was still not certified gold (as it should have been as gold is now down to 10k and the album already sold over 15k copies here - probably they are waiting it to cross 20k to be certified Platinum as each certificaiton needs to be paid to AFP).

                  Madonna certainly already sold over 500 million records worldwide (pure sales) as she sold over 200 millions physical singles + digital songs (do the math including her certification sales and estimated sales only based on the charts while the songs were there - plus aditional digital songs info we have).

                  If we include streamings and track equivalents that number may already even be over 600 millions soon (she is doing relatively well on SPS in US and UK - but much probably in other countries as well as we have not much info about them).

                  Hopefully Madonna sales are updated this year and Warner will finally anounce Madonna sold over 500 million records worldwide (including over 300 million albums)! I look foward their press-release in October as it's when Madonna completes the 40 years carreer anniversary and it's before Christmas (they will certainly release something for Christmas and put most publicity and advertising effort by then).


                  Sorry for the long post but think about it but I think now you may understand better the numbers (there are 206 countries in the World).

                  • ^Madonna has not sold 300M albums it's just not possible, Nichu who has made this thread has given very good information on her sales yes he might've underestimated some of her sales especially Asia but it makes sense, every thread has done it. Regardless of all there is no WW SPS to begin with, most cities of Asia don't even have a chart to SPS formula to begin with same for many continents. ChartMasters also have made up a random formula to just feed stan twitter kids, while he has sliced many divas sales especially old acts.

                    In all, 275M pure albums by Warner makes zero sense, read the OP! There will always be a dispute regarding sales for old acts which makes sense, but don't read everything you believe in when you follow charts, Madonna any which way has not let any female breathe regarding her commercial success but 300M+ albums is not possible. Anyway, let's move on from this conversation in general and let's see what M40 press release brings regarding her commercials.

                    FYI - even Mariah's team said she sold more than 200M albums now you can understand how much to believe these statements.

                      It is possible that Mariah Carey did sold over 200 million albums worldwide including SPS (despite being hard to believe).
                      Her US sales must be already over 80 million right now and her Christmas song certainly added around 10 million album sales worldwide to that album worldwide during the past 20 years. Some of her 90's album did pretty good worldwide and in Japan her certified album sales are over 12 million.

                      Celine Dion album sales worldwide are probably also over 200 million albums by now already (her best 3 albums sold almost 90 million worldwide and she have released the most number of albums - including also many in french that sold millions).

                      Just as it's possible (and very credible) that Madonna really sold over 300 million albums when so many albums certs aren't updated for over 30 years.
                      But let's wait for Warner Announcement in a few months. I'm certain it will happen.and that this number will much probably be there!

                      • ^They talked about pure sales for Mimi as Warner talking about Madge here, don't be deluded please. There is no way to calculate WW SPS most countries don't have it you follow charts you know all this. Only Celine has done or close to 200M not anyone else after Madge (she's above 200M)

                                    • It looks like every pre-2000 Female lost quite a few monthly listeners yesterday and Madonna was the one that lost the less:

                                      1. Shakira: 33,866,479 (-15,934)
                                      2. Britney: 25,262,610 (-71,657)
                                      3. Madonna: 21,743,850 (-7,407)
                                      4. JLo: 21,177,067 (-31,114)

                                        I think that’s 200 million worldwide instead of abroad.
                                        Maybe that’s a typo.
