    I think your list doesn't quite show the "highest certified" albums but the biggest sellers instead. In terms of certifications there are many other 3xP, 4xP and even 5xP that got certified under new criterias when Platinum was downgraded to 300K and then downgraded to 200K.
    OK.

    I have a feeling that even if the singles weren't that huge, they did a lot for the album, and the fact that TPOG was big around Christmas, that gave the album a big boost. Does anyone know the album's chart run in Germany?
    Ray Of Light was selling like crazy in Germany. I can clearly remember it went back to #1 around Christmas 1998...

    That's not really true, especially in the case of Germany where the following acts scored number 1 hits in the 80s:
    - Phil Collins (2)
    - Stevie Wonder (2)
    - Frankie Goes To Hollywood (3)
    - Mel & Kim (2)
    - Whitney Houston (2)
    - Pet Shop Boys (3)
    - Rick Astley (2)
    - each of the following has also had at least one #1: Duran Duran, Abba, Soft Cell, Kim Carnes, Paul McCartney, OMD, Kylie Minogue, Bee Gees (and Robin Gibb as a solo artist), Culture Club, Paul Young, Kajagoogoo, Depeche Mode, Rod Stewart, Laura Branigan, Tears For Fears, Elton John, Tina Turner, A-Ha, Europe, Roxette, Bangles, Status Quo, France Gall, Sinead O'Connor, Taylor Dayne etc.

    Madonna was just very unlucky with a lot of high peaking singles missing the top spot (the most memorable losers were "Like A Prayer" and later "Frozen", both stuck at #2 for many weeks).
    The list you posted include biggest 80s act, and they barely have one or two no. 1s in the whole decade. Michael Jackson had no number one singles in the 80s in Germany IIRC.

    So this list actually proves Western point rather than contradicting him. Maybe "barely charted high" is a bit of an exaggeration, but what he meant was clearly that the market was harder to break, in those specific countries. And that is definitely true (especially for France)

    I don't agree that Madonna was just unlucky. Were Michael and Whitney unlucky too for having, respectively, 0 and 2 number ones? The market was just different.
    Well, having 2 number 1's in a decade is nothing unlucky for sure, 0 for a big act is indeed.
    The market is different all the time and keeps on evolving so that's not an argument proving that 80's were harder to "break" for international acts. It might have been the case in France where local acts used to reign supreme but the German charts have always been full of overseas influx. Regarding number 1's, due to the different dynamics of the charts, stars from the noughties have had bigger chances of reaching the top spot compared to the 80's (especially in the release week) but now with the inclusion of streaming it's all slowing down again. Despite being huge or at least very popular throughout the 21st century and benefitting from the period of dynamic charts, the following international acts have never had a German number 1: Coldplay, One Direction, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Justin Bieber, Enrique Iglesias, Avril Lavigne, Nicki Minaj, Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, Chris Brown, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus and many others. Not to mention that Beyoncé's spent only one single week at the German top (partly thanks to her partner Shakira), the same is true for Drake meanwhile stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Flo Rida or Jason Derulo have also only managed one #1 in spite of countless collaborations and featuring's.

    Rihanna scores her 21st top five Hot 100 hit, tying Elvis Presley for the fifth-most top fives in the chart's history, which dates to Aug. 4, 1958. (Notably, Presley's career launched two years before the chart began.) Here's a look at the acts with the most top five hits, as Rihanna breaks out of a tie with two icons, each with 20:

    Most Top Five Hot 100 Hits

    29, The Beatles
    28, Madonna
    26, Mariah Carey
    24, Janet Jackson
    21, Elvis Presley
    21, Rihanna
    20, Michael Jackson
    20, Stevie Wonder
    This is amazing, Madonna only need one more hit to macth The Beatles' record.
    It shows that how Madonna ranked #2 on Greatest Hot 100 Artists of All Time. People keep arguing Mariah has a lot more number-one songs than Madonna, while in fact Madonna has the most top ten and second most top five.

    Out of those 28 top five hits, 'only' 12 reached #1. She has so many iconic #2 hits that should have been #1... Material Girl, Express Yourself, Frozen, etc :evil:

    This was already discussed here, and German users here confirmed what I said in the past.

    It's kinda amazing how successful she was in 00s and yet her success is always downgraded. I mean all singles she released in that decade were top 10 singles worldwide (excluding Miles Away and Love Profusion)

    On Spotify La Isla Bonita is behind LAP, LAV, MG and Vogue only (among her old hits).

    It's definitely one of her most remembered song from the 80s! It was huge in Europe, not as much in the US (although it's the biggest selling catalog seller among True Blue singles).

    "La Isla Bonita" was her only #1 hit in Germany until "American Pie". I was shocked when "Pie" hit #1. The video wasn't even released.

    Hi! Annoyingly, I didn't get the end of week sales for last week's chart, so I can't report whether it's top 200 or not. I was hoping it would show up in the top 200 midweeks this week and then I'd be able to let you know because last week's official position would have been reported. Sorry!

    Some of his figures are a little questionable, but he has her at 205m albums sold and that's more likely than Mediatraffic numbers.

    He also made mistake because he first posted RH sales at 900,000 on its page but later at 850,000 and he posted Italy sales as 15,000 when they are over 60,000
    He had Rebel Heart at 850k even on its own page, because of the 15k typo. Me and another person commented highlighting the mistake, which has now been corrected (only on RH sales page though).

    Some singles sales may be a bit off, but the overall picture is what matters for this type of work. And, overall, it looks amazing.
