    28k in four years is a given, right? Especially considering the last number was during the era, before the end of the tour.
    MDNA is at 539,000 as of December 2014
    Oh, good. It's obviously low but I'm surprised the difference is so small with Hard Candy (which was released at a time where the industry was much healthier.) I guess the ticket bundle thing really helped. I'll understand understand why it failed with Rebel Heart. I remember they did the same, but it brought like 10k sales at most…
    I'm really curious to know how Rebel Heart would have fared had it not leaked two months prior to its release. Anyway, I hope her next era will be handled better. Promo-wise the RH era was incredible tbh. The first time in 10 years she really promoted a record. I just hope it will be a traditional release (a real lead single, no pre-order EP, no huge leak.)
    They didn't.

    • Lament- but they didn't do the same with RH. With MDNA, all concert dates ere on sale in advance of the album release. With RH, only a select number of dates were on sale, and I think they primarily were during album-release week. And, it was just digital copies, whereas MDNA was both digital and physical. So, a big difference in the process for both.

      I think Paul Grein provided some totals after Billboard- which may explain any discrepancies for [i]Music[/i} and even [i]American Life[i]- he may have added import sales or something.

              • But what is the total of Rebel Heart? I mean with 238k in USA and around 80 in the UK how is it possible that it sold 700k in the others countries? I mean, the chart-runs worldwide are not that good to justify 700k or even 600k...

                  The album sold similar to the UK in other Big European countries such as Germany and France and it was pretty big in Italy where it sold like 60K units there. She also had solid sales in Latin America where the album achieved certifications in Mexico and Brazil.

                  Remember that Madonna has been very international oriented since she lost the American market. "Hard Candy" sold close to 4million units with only 700K coming from the US. The proportion wasn't much different with "Rebel Heart".

                    I know that but:

                    France
                    *3* - 7 - 18 - 23 - 43 - 48 - 68 - 75 - 77 - 94 - 100 - 119 - 95 - 128 - 148 - 140 - 152 - 170 - 189 - 155 - 196 - 173 - 190 - 196 - Out / 24w

                    Germany
                    *1* - 4 - 13 - 24 - 25 - 19 - 28 - 24 - 31 - 25 - 44 - 45 - 70 - 75 - 92 - Out - RE (112) - Out / 15w

                    She spent like 6 weeks in the top 50 in France and 12 in Germany... I mean even if she sold 200k between the three big European countries there are other 500k copies... I don't know, I'm just curious...

                            I'm actually debating carlo_thebest's argument by showing to him how the album did almost 700K in just 10 countries alone. Which means that its +900K figure is not too high as he is implying.

                              Those are shipments and even if 2 disc CD might could as two units for certifications purposes, it definitely count as one unit if we talk about sales.

                              Plus I didn't want to start any argument, I was just asking because I was curious about its sales. If the reported estimations regarding France and Germany are right, than yes, I guess it's realistic an estimation between 800/900k worldwide.

                                Sales = shipments. Shipments are literally the only way to know sales in Brazil (as well as many other countries).

                                  • these lists... i hate them because they insinuate that the conditions were the same for all the acts listed.. ehm they weren't...

                                    from 1958-1998 only physical singles were allowed to chart and the implementation of album tracks being allowed to chart came 1 decade after that.

                                    All of this affected the artists who charted prior to 2000's.

                                        The worst would be useless featuring. But well the world has been living a digital révolution and Madonna was good at it too. She's been there for 3 decades guys.

                                            Pretty much everything except for USA and UK is inflated on that list. Besides, shipments are mixed with sales but that's another story. Anyhow over 900,000 SOLD copies worldwide is hardly possible, 800,000 perhaps. Shipments might have reached 900,000 though.
