The norm by 2005 was that physical singles weren’t selling anymore except in a few European countries plus Australia. They were doing so at a lower rate than a few years earlier even on those countries. Hung Up challenged those norms, destroying charts and sales figures. Its total of 1,72 million is one of the highest since its release to date, all acts considered.

Both Sorry and later 4 Minutes were successful too. The market was becoming truly irrelevant, but Madonna has the advantage of a solid base of fans who purchases her collectors. Thanks to them, she keeps selling physical singles even by now.
