CSPC: Madonna Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format – Part 4 – Early Music Videos

Just like live albums, VHS / DVDs depend on which song is sung during each tour. Some videos are also themed around a compilation like The Immaculate Collection, which happens to be her greatest seller up to an impressive 1,6 million.

Each of the five VHS issued from 1984 to 1990 is led by songs from Like A Virgin, confirming its status as the main force of Madonna‘s catalog, ahead of True Blue. On its side, Ray Of Light is the easy leader of the 93:99 period.

We still need to add all figures together to understand how big it really is, but as you can guess, the overall number of equivalent album sales generated by Like A Virgin is mind-blowing.

Your numbers for sales before 2010 are so incomplete! I can’t believe you’re spreading false information this way! Some of Madonna physical singles even sold twice what you wrote they did! You should really contact her Record Labels to get the real info but not sure they have it available to get it to you (if they are lazy to even re-certify albums that sold multiple platinums more in some countries (for over 3 decades) I wouldn’t be that helpfull. Some of your single sales for Madonna are just US + UK and a little more sales (when those singles… Read more »

Why don’t you post your sources for these sales? If you have the “correct” information, then provide the sources to back it up.

Imo LIB was the most commercially successful Madonna single. Although it was released as the 5th single of the album, it managed to outsell all previously released with the exception of PDP which was released before the album release, which obviously boosted sales. Had it been the other way around, I believe the numbers would be like more than 5m for LIB and about 2 m for PDP. And if one takes into consideration that LIB, a summer anthem, as the 2nd single would be released in the beginning of summer 1986 and not in February, or the fact that… Read more »

He said La Isla Bonita is Madonna’s most successful single, Not all time best.
You ARE SO BIASED!

After reading Madonna’s popularity analisys, the first thought I have is what if Youtube and Spotify would be exist since 1985, and the instant reply is that she would be still the biggest female artist of all times, easily in the top 3. Beside, she is the most pirated artist in all times (leaked albums, black market, piracy), countless unofficial channels in Youtube with her videos, shows, performances with dismissed views, etc.
