Time for the S-L-A-Y-I-N-G to begin! Madonna’s 12th studio album ‘MDNA‘ is all set to blast straight to the top of the Billboard 200 Albums Chart next week, making it her 8th # 1 album (and 5th consecutive # 1). Preliminary sales figures estimate the album to sell up to a whopping 350,000 copies by the end of this week, easily placing it ahead of Lionel Richie’s ‘Tuskagee‘ which is aiming for a # 2 début with around 125,000 copies sold.
The sales of ‘MDNA‘ easily surpasses the sales of Madonna’s last studio album ‘Hard Candy‘ which opened at # 1 with 280,000 copies. And surprisingly, apart from the Super Bowl, Madonna’s had no promotion for the album except for strategically released teasers and snippets, along with a few complete leaks.
Haters, you mad?? I have just one word for you.
With 8 # 1 albums, Madonna inches closer to Barbra Streisand who has 9 # 1 albums (the most among female vocalists), and moves ahead of Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey who have 6 each.
Lessers, haters etc. Kindly stay pressed. And collect your snatched wigs at the door.
