CSPC: Madonna Popularity Analysis

Streaming Part 2

This second set of streaming results highlights the decreasing popularity of Madonna when entering into the 90s. The second point highlighted is the unquestionable status of catalog’s flagship song of Like A Prayer, which is past 70 million, a 40% lead over all of her deep catalog hits. In terms of YouTube views, it is second to Vogue among pre-2005 tunes.

Like A Prayer, the song, is responsible for 75% of its album equivalent album sales from streams which stand at 114,000 units. On its side, Vogue is worth nearly 95% of I’m Breathless total. Those percentages show the end of the unstoppable hit machine Madonna was during the 80s as one song only has an overwhelming dominance over a complete era.
