    This year (so far), I've only bought 2 albums, usually I buy around 60 albums per year and 0 tracks / singles, usually around 100+ on iTunes.

    Prior to Madonna, Linda Ronstadt was pretty much the Queen, she was at the time the most successful female artist of all time with longevity and a string of hit albums. Everything that Madonna is now in terms of being ahead of any other female was Linda Ronstadt up until early 80s.

    Pat was the biggest female rock artist until Tina came along.

    Paula's debut sold 9/10 million in US which more than all Madonna's albums in the 80s but LAV. It could very well be The 3rd biggest release by a female in the 80s (USA). The Jessica Simpson/Britney comparison is completely inaccurate. I can understand Christina and Britney comparison being similar.

    So weird that Whitney, Tina, and Madonna were the only American women to have major success in Europe in the 80s. Was it the type of music they made or was there actual shipping issues when it comes to certain labels???

    Icons like Pat Benatar, Janet, Paula, and Cyndi might have had minor success in Europe, but it did not match their US success.
    Pat Benatar and Paula Abdul were IMO not A-league acts, they got great achievements and hits but they didn't have what was required to be global stars and their stats were always behind Madonna / Tina / Whitney. Pat Benatar was to Tina Turner what Ciara was to Beyonce and Paula Abdul was to Madonna what Jessica Simpson was to Britney. Simply not on a same tier / league. These acts tend to make it bigger in US but have little impact on international markets.

    Janet was A-league but the R&B genre was always bigger in US and I don't know why Cyndi could never fully connect with Europe, I guess her image was cool in US but a turn off in Europe? Who knows.

    Outside of Bodyguard of course. But I did forget her.
    Not necessarily outside of Bodyguard - her debut probably outsold Bodyguard in Europe.

    Wayne,

    MJdangerous, who is known to downplay the divas has Bodyguard at 12.1 million in Europe. I doubt Chapman is that high....

    But yes, I forgot her.

    Don't forget Tracy Chapman - who's debut album sold more copies in Europe than any album released by Whitney, Madonna or Tina.

    Tamar's debut album is very underrated. The Way It Should Be, Tonight, If You Don't Wanna Love Me, Your Room >>>>>

    Congrats Ray! That's beautiful.

    Tamar is...sometimes I like her personality and sometimes I don't. (I like it on the Braxton's show. She's funny af but...hate it when she's acting like a black gay man during interviews and such)

    Her music has improved. Calling All Lovers is everything to me. But they didn't capitalize off of her success from Love & War well. I'm sure it probably had something with her having a baby after she put out Love & War. I know she wanted to be this big music star but it seems like they shifted her focus so she's more of a TV personality now that makes music.

    Congrats to you and your partner, RayRay! 20 years is a long time. I can't imagine myself getting married, let alone be married for so long.

    I hate Tamar's personality. I have no love for crybullies. I absolutely love her music though.
