  • ^Yes, we had precise (idk if they were official) numbers, year by year, for ROL (should have them pasted somewhere). Totals should be 250k if I remember well (so MY BAD, ot could't be at 2.1m even with club sales added, 1,950/2m max).
    Considering that, as you've just said, TIC was certified 3.6 when it was at 3.1m sold, it became "a common" rule to consider a +15% her club sales.
    This estimation could apply to her best-selling albums (we all know how clubs worked, by choosing only the best sellers) and/or old albums to be rediscovered ("The First Album" with LAV) until Music.
    Don't know the ratio to apply to Britney...

    • It's a shame they don't count those sales when they report them.


      • Right? I was hoping for an update...

        Seems to be selling pretty well though and that's a good position.

          peak: #1 (6 weeks, 4 weeks in March/April 1998 and 2 weeks in January 1999)
          weeks on chart: 83

          A diagram of its chart run:

          wow! Thank you so much. it was great to see that
          It's such an unusual chart run for Madonna in 1998. Her album coming back from top 50 to #1 like that

          • So, she's one place ahead of Back to Black which sold 3,756,543 as of last week

            Last update for TIC was in October 2014 and it was at 3,665,068

            So she sold at least 91,475 copies since then!


            • So wich is it? 3,756,543 or more than 4 millions?

                                  Madonna's 'Human Nature': Saluting the Unapologetic Anthem That Should Have Been a Smash Hit

                                  From "Vogue" to "Take a Bow" to "Ray of Light," Madonna scored some of her signature hits in the '90s. While most of her '80s pop compatriots struggled to stay on the radio, Madonna more-or-less maintained the same level of stardom throughout the decade, earning just two fewer Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits in the '90s than she did in the '80s.

                                  But between Bedtime Stories and Evita, Madonna experienced her first real career dip. After several years of hypersexual imagery and songwriting (from the "Justify My Love" video to the Sex book) and some family-unfriendly public appearances (her 1994 Letterman interview in particular), a portion of the American public was exhausted with her by 1995. Puritanical pop listeners might be OK with a heartfelt plea for keeping a baby, but leather and whips is just too much.

                                  While she soon got back on track with a prestige motion picture (Evita) and an elegant ballad collection (Something to Remember), there was one unfortunate musical casualty of her brief lull: "Human Nature."

                                  One of the few hip-hop-inflected singles in her discography (it samples a song from Main Source, the same rap group that gave Nas his first on-wax appearance), "Human Nature" has a deeply funk foundation while maintaining the spacious, thin production common to many '90s R&B hits.

                                  While "Take a Bow" -- released just a year earlier from the same album, Bedtime Stories -- was a smash No. 1 for Madge, "Human Nature" stalled at No. 46 despite a killer video and a defiant, empowering message. Lyrically, Madonna brushes off the prudes who faulted her for fixating on sex, pointing out that the "taboo" subject is simply human nature -- the most basic element of human nature at that. She also correctly points out that she'd have gotten less flak for exploring sexuality so bluntly if she were a man ("Would it sound better if I were a man?" is one of her whispered rhetorical questions throughout). And it's hard to argue with that -- have any of the male directors behind sexually explicit hit movies been put through the wringer like she has?

                                  Furthermore, the "Express yourself, don't repress yourself" refrain is classic -- the kind of line built to be repeated decades later. So why didn't "Human Nature" at least knick the top 10?

                                  Part of the reason may have been the fact that previous single "Bedtime Story" isolated too many radio programmers and casual fans. The Bjork co-write, while adventurous and exhilarating, didn't make sense on radio in the mid-'90s, and it was just too weird for most of her younger fans (and in 1995, she still had plenty of those).

                                  Ultimately, though, it's the content of the song itself that prevented it from penetrating mass culture like previous dancefloor-ready singles. "Human Nature" is crafted as a challenge to those who thought she went too far by releasing an entire book devoted to erotic photos, and those are the people who don't want to discuss sexuality -- they just want to chastise you for talking about it. Even though the "I'm not your bitch/ Don't hang your shit on me" line was excised for radio, the message of "Human Nature" was still too much for those who hated her Dita Parlo persona.

                                  "Human Nature" is the original "Unapologetic Bitch," but it came at a time when the idea of an unapologetic woman was far too threatening for most -- not just radio programmers and parents, but even many of her fans. To a Puritan, the only thing worse than a woman wearing a scarlet A is a woman proudly wearing a scarlet A.

                                  Regardless, "Human Nature" holds up as one of her finest '90s singles, and today we're saluting this anthem to not apologizing when you know you were right in the first place.

                                    Full List: The World's Highest-Paid Celebrities Of 2016
                                    by Zack O'Malley Greenburg , FORBES STAFF

                                    Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, LeBron James, Jackie Chan and Melissa McCarthy–what do they all have in common? They’re members of this year’s edition of the FORBES Celebrity 100, the definitive accounting of the top-earning entertainers on the planet.

                                    These stars pulled in a collective $5.1 billion pretax during our June-to-June scoring period. Regrettably, that’s more than the GDP of Belize, Gambia and Bhutan combined. Yet the list is surprisingly international in scope, ranging from Hollywood’s usual suspects like top-earning actor Dwayne Johnson (No. 19, $64.5 million) and cover star Kim Kardashian (No. 43, $51 million) to Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen (No. 99, $30.5 million) and Korean pop sensation Bigbang (No. 54, $44 million).

                                    Here at FORBES we recognize that, although many readers will enjoy exploring the list through our gorgeous interactive lander or browsing through a gallery of the top 100, some folks would prefer the cold, hard numbers. So, without further ado, here they are:
