        I’ve always wondered how strange it must be for her, knowing that if she lost it all, all she has to do is announce one show and she’d become a multimillionaire again overnight.
        All she had to do was say yes to Vegas, and she would become a billionaire. She's never been in the business for #1 or money, although that was a very enjoyable bonus for her. We all know she could had more #1, more money, more records broken, but most of the times, she showed she didn't give a ****.

          In China, fans of Ma**** Ca*** keep saying Madonna discounted Take A Bow at 69 cent.
          Bloodline917 Here he is! He said Take A Bow was discounted to 69 cents.
          But I Can't find any news about it.
          Instead, I found a lot of reports about Ma*** Ca*** discount her singles to 49 cent in 90s
          One Sweet Day, Honey, My All, Hearbreaker, Thank God I Found You, Loverboy were all discounted to 49-99 cents.

          I just wanna know the truth. Anyone who comes from U.S. can answer that?
          a pressed Mariah fan tried to manipulate the past and hide mariahs discount profiles. That's why he brought up Madonna. Take a bow was never a discount or bargain sales like Mariah did so many times. The new York times in 1996 pointed out the chart manipulation and featured the name Mariah, not madonna because mariah and tommy the two desperate couple started the whole bargain sale mess in history. Her ex husband Tommy and Mariah wanted no.1s and inflated the charts records. Madonna was not happy with their business move and she said unfavorably about it and their moves back then.
          So that chinese stan needs to Shut up and sit down.

            As you say it was also not on the news.

            Never heard about Madonna heavy discounted singles!
            Many Mariah singles were discounted on first weeks to peak high on the charts but Madonna rarely had discounted singles and when she had they were at $1.99, never less than that.

            If I recall right the price was $2.99 or more for single and $5.99 or more for maxi-single. Someone from US will recall it better.
            I ordered mine cd-maxi-single from US but don't remember the price correctly.

            "Take a Bow" was a very R&B and Soul and so it had a lot more Radio station having it in heavy rotation than it was usual for Madonna songs. The song was a chart slow climber and was 9 weeks at #01 Radio Songs Chart (and her performance at the American Music Awards did helped a lot). Slow climbers are very rarely discounted.

            Mariah Carey heavy discounted singles usually had their peak position on first weeks of the charts as people rushed to buy them at low prices or get them in addition to whatever just because it costs next to nothing. They were usually at discounted price on week of release and first weeks (until the Sony was sure the song peaked). She does have quite a few #01 and #02 on Billboard thanks to discounted singles during the 90's. In UK it didn't work as sales for new singles under a certain price were not allowed to count for charts and so she never had the possibility to discount the singles more than 1.99 on week of release (usual price was 2.99 or more) - that's probably one of the reasons she have so much less number ones in UK Charts as well.
            Correct.
            I used to live and study in the us back in the mid 90s through 2005. I witnessed all of them happening in tha tower records and hmv's. And as a big music lover and madonna collector, I used to buy and collect her two track singles for 2.99 or maxi singles 5.99. Import singles were much more expensive. In the middle of that Mariah and tommy started the 49 cents or 99 cents bargain mess out of nowhere.
            the whole industry got embarrassed and found out that the couple was that much desperate and something wrong. Tragic.

            • Discounts are nothing wrong, it's a promotional strategy after all.
              Just like those concert ticket bundles which have little to do with real album success so Madonna has had artificially inflated numbers under her belt as well but I suppose most artists have had similar cases. It's capitalism so everyone's free to to promote the products the way (s)he wants, even if it means selling it for peanuts.

                If Charts had closed rules for too much discount like in UK they had then Mariah Carey wouldn't have half her #01 Hot 100 Hits.
                They were actually handing out the singles for free since the money went all for Shops only (sellin them at $0.49).

                At least on bundles you pay $200 or $400 for a concert ticket and get a $10 download album included on the price (quite more honest).

                • I've read many things about Mariah's career and how few of her singles were discounted or sent to people like a gift or idk, but that's not the point of the thread

                      • What part of "leave the Mariah discounted her singles" narrative out of this thread, after it has caused so much trouble, reports AND infractions in the past some of you still have NOT understand?

                        Also, a reminder this is her CHART analysis thread. So, please, stop going off topic and use her general artists thread for anything not chart related.

                          Yes Please, Christmas is still months away so there is no reason to talk about Mariah.

                            Nice way to receive an infraction.

                        • Is this even going to chart or when the physical copies drop in August?

                            The album is not even available for DIGITAL SALES as it's STREAMING ONLY (for the short version). Most countries chart rules don't allow albums that are NOT available for sale to chart (like Portugal where I live or UK, among many others).

                            So yes, it wlll only be allowed to chart after 19th August when it's released for sale in both Digital and Physical formats.

                                          • Causing A Commotion reached number one in Denmark on 16th Oct. 1987 for two weeks.

                                            We need someone to add it on wikipedia please.

                                            • Unfortunally I'm sure a lot of countries official charts peak positions are missing from Madonna singles wikipedia.

                                              That #01 placement really must be added!!!

                                                  Probably in the 90's.
