MADONNA, BRUCE HEADED FOR TOP DEBUTS

All indicators point to a #1 debut for Madonna on next week's HITS Top 50. With a ticket bundle and D2C offerings fueling half of the opening total, expect Madame X to give Madge her first #1 since 2012's MDNA.

Early reads:

Madonna (Interscope) 80-100k total activity, 75-95k album
Bruce Springsteen (Columbia) 42-47k, 40-44k

High Hopes had a limited edition DVD with it.

Madonna may have sold more, but Bruce didn't make an absolute wanker of himself on Graham Norton this past Friday. 

So I think we know who the real winner actually is here.

Well, probably the missing 50k regret having bought High Hopes in the first place... ;) 

Fool me once...

I'm sorry but since even 2014 the music industry has changed substantially.

People stream most music now and far less people buy music. And I think only the serious fans buy CD or vinyl today.

 

Indeed. iMusic or Spotify have a huge impact on sales. I really like Western Stars, but why should I hurry to the record store when I got it ‘for free’ the very instant it was released?

South African iTunes chart... I’m well impressed if I’m honest. And no, I have no fucking clue who the number 1 artist is.

I compared views on youtube. With only one month under it's belt I think  the Hello Sunshine video is doing fine.

Hello Sunshine 2,7 million views.

We take care of our own 4,1 million views

Radio Nowhere 8,1 million views

No 1 or 2 in the album charts in 2019 at the age of 69. I'm so proud of Brucie.

Does it bother anyone that Bruce puts out an album that doesn’t sell well? It’s not like he needs the money or the ego boost...

Madonna is giving her cd away with each ticket purchase for her tour.  That's the only way she is leading in sales.

I did not know the Now That's What I Call Music! Series still exists.

You would say in this digital age people would compile their own playlist.

Not that I know how to make a playlist myself but my 13-years old niece can give me instructions.

Doesn't "bother" me. It's just surprising but, honestly, his audience hasn't been what it was for quite some time since he came out in support of Kerry and when he criticized the demented narcissist and current illegitimate president well I'm sure that was the final straw for some.....good riddance half of the fanbase! :D You don't deserve to be Bruce fans.

I like the GN show a lot, don't need to see this however.  

Madonna being Madonna I presume.

It's the best talk show of the lot I reckon. 

She was wearing an eyepatch for some reason.

They said it was conjunctivitis on the Eurovision song contest, but that was weeks ago. Maybe recorded at the same time?
