I hope Madonna’s upcoming Biopic and the recently announced plans of her label, Warner Records, re-visiting her discography will give her catalogue a big boost on streaming, especially for ‘Erotica’.
It is so close to reaching 10M CSPC units, but with recurrent stats this low, it’ll take ages for it to ultimately reach it. Hopefully, her future activities will give it a boost.

Can someone explain me how this numbers are calculated ? Sales of Like a Prayer-track between Physical and Digital are a 1.212 MILLIONS CSPS, how this reach almost 18 millions ?

kot

Every ‘medium’ that cointains the song Like a Prayer is taken into consideration. So it’s gonna be its digital and physical sales as a single, but also streaming and all the albums, compillationa and remixes where the song happens to be. Of course there is a special ratio applied to calculate how many copies it ‘sold’.

TapestryCK

Can you post her sales in some other coutries,Such as Portugal,Hongkong,Taiwan and singapore.
I Wonder how many countries she sold over 1 million copies albums
She has 10 album went platinum in Hong Kong,CFOAD is 2XPlatinum
I Live in Hong Kong,she’s really popular in here back in the 80s

Her streaming numbers aren’t that great. Rolling Stones, Eminem and Pink Floyd will overtake her eventually.

Cláudius Faria

We never know what is going to happen in the future guys. Especially because her Spotify numbers increase a litlle bit every month, her YouTube views are better than Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd and her new Warner deal.

El Jolito

Thats because she made expensive flashy music videos for the MTV generation. The Stones and Pink Floyd didn’t really bother. You go on to Youtube for the video generally, not so much for the music.

Jazz

Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd debut at a time when music video does not exist. Not because they didn’t really bother. They probably would have bothered to put effort into making videos if they debut in the 80s instead of the 60s.

Dcos

Is the streams of Confessions on the dance floor correct? I think 625 very high

LestGetToIt

i think they also include Youtube

HengeBoy

Wow. RH sold 900K
