The Predictions Are In! Madonna’s ‘Madame X’ Set To Sell…

Published: Saturday 15th Jun 2019 by Sam

This week brought with it the release of Madonna‘s 14th studio album ‘Madame X.’

Despite today’s era of surprise drops, the Pop royal opted for a semi-traditional roll-out, working the project for a number of months and supporting with a series of videos and high-profile performances.

One unanticipated aspect of the campaign was the worldwide theater tour the arena-packer announced.

Many assumed the 60-year-old would embrace stadiums, as she certainly has the clout to and would benefit from the increasingly popular bundling method that’s helped many a major name triumph on the charts.

While she’s did indeed package tickets with the LP, the scale of the tour (or lackthere-of) left many wondering what those first week sales would look like.

Well, wonder no more. Because the predictions are in. Join us after the jump…

According to Hits Daily Double, Madge’s ‘Medellin’ led set is on course to sell…

80,000-100,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]
*********
75,000-95,000
[Pure Sales]

*********

Factoring in the nature of the tour bundle (limited) and the album’s lack of charting hit, we’re actually positively surprised.

‘Madame X’ is far from our favorite body of work and will have its work cut out for it when it comes to longevity, but it’s doing decent business out of the gate. Right?

Your thoughts?

    • Jasmine June 15, 2019

      • Martaevia La’Wayne June 16, 2019

        You haven’t heard the album.

      • Jasmine NOT Gutter TRASH F.AGGOT JEROME aka ‘Jasmine Da Bi Asian’ June 16, 2019

        And I won’t listen to it. What is ur point? Did you see me review the album b|tch? NO. so shut it!

      • Snark the line June 17, 2019

        Jasmine, how old are you? Twelve? You act like it. You also conduct yourself like ghetto trash! Nasty, vile, evil ghetto trash living in you mama house stealing from the local grocery cuz you can’t hoed a job. LOL LOL LOL

      • Jasmine June 17, 2019

        B|tch get a life. How I conduct myself is none of ur business thirsty b|tch. I’m very affluent and calling me ghetto trash is laughable because I’m established and wealthy. Your mom can be my maid b|tch!

    • SMH June 15, 2019

      Yup, white queens are loyal to their Icons. Black queens need to take note.

      • Dear Black People June 16, 2019

        Jasmine & SMH are the same thing, how many troll accounts does he have?

      • Jasmine NOT Gutter TRASH F.AGGOT JEROME aka ‘Jasmine Da Bi Asian’ June 16, 2019

        NOPE I’m not SMH. CLEARLY we don’t have the same opinion on this. I said Madge is buying her own albums. SMH said she has a loyal white fan base.

    • Gary Ryckewaert June 17, 2019

      You’re an ass.

  2. Steve June 15, 2019

    Surprised

  3. MUSICHEAD June 15, 2019

    At this point in Madonna’s career, sales don’t matter. As long as she has the creative freedom to still do what she wants, she’s still winning.

    • Highbrowthis June 15, 2019

      Agreed. I think Madonna, Janet, Mariah and a few others are only competing with themselves at this point. No doubt the climate and scale has changed but they’ve done everything hitmaker of today are doing and actually exceeded because their influence is seen beyond their own themselves and their generations. You really can’t call there project flops at this point.

      • SMH June 15, 2019

        Truth.

      • KA June 16, 2019

        I agee, I’m waiting on Janet!

    • June 15, 2019

      100%

  4. Caleb June 15, 2019

    Does anyone really consider this a “flop” when she’s doing these numbers 36-37 years into her music career and it’s her 15th studio album? The people who debuted way after her aren’t even doing these numbers.

    • Caleb June 15, 2019

      There does seem to be a chance that Bruce Springsteen will block her from #1 or even the Jonas Brothers. Hope not.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian PISCES 💁🏿‍♀️Not 37 year old TROLLmine nor TRASHmine June 15, 2019

        It honestly doesn’t matter. She’s still selling and is the biggest selling, is the point.

      • Jasmine June 15, 2019

        Cockroach

      • B June 16, 2019

      • Dear Black People June 16, 2019

        Jasmine & SMH are the same thing, how many troll accounts does he have?

      • Jasmine NOT Gutter TRASH F.AGGOT JEROME aka ‘Jasmine Da Bi Asian’ June 16, 2019

        @Dear Black People Shut it b|tch. I only have one account. I am NOT SMH or anybody else. I suspect you are another troll account from that Mississipi Delta queen f.aggot bully who is OBSESSED with me!

  5. Jenny June 15, 2019

    It’s an Amazing album.
    She worked so hard for this and the result is ?
    A masterpiece!
    Congrats Madonna!

  6. Boytoy1814 June 15, 2019

No I don’t want to talk to you, no you can’t work as a TGJ journalist (too manny spelling errors, application denied) and no you can’t be me… I’m female, you’re hermàphrödite. And I’m sorry that you’re so jealous of me but I can’t help it that I’m popular SHANIQUA!!!!

      • Jasmine June 15, 2019

        No I am the grown ass woman on here. U are the Mississippi Delta male queen who continues to disrespect me. I told u numerous times that ur long ass username offends me yet u won’t pick another name. Thus, every time ur country heshe ass poses as ‘Jasmine’ I am entitled to check u. It’s clear. U wish u were me and lived my life. But u can’t and u ain’t so keep seething bully. U just a punk anyway. U buck but u ain’t got no knuck. I knuck and buck and I will stomp ur ass down like a southern cockroach

      • Oh Well June 16, 2019

        TROLLMINE SHANIQUA leave the real Jasmine alone we all know that you are a lady boy. We all thought that you would be happy once you had your reassignment surgery, we started the go fund for you and this is how you repay us by nasty comments.

      • Jasmine June 16, 2019

        Jerome u are pathetic. Very pathetic. Cockroach

      • Dear Black People June 16, 2019

        Jasmine & SMH are the same thing, how many troll accounts does he have?

      • Jasmine NOT Gutter TRASH F.AGGOT JEROME aka ‘Jasmine Da Bi Asian’ June 16, 2019

        U sound dumb and ignorant! Why would I create a troll account to say what I got to say when CLEARLY I speak my mind from my one and only ‘Jasmine’ account. I have been commenting on TGJ since the very beginning. U need to show me some respect! I am not a HE. I am a she. I guess on this site, women are a RARE find. It is full of gay MEAN men like you who pathetically try to belittle and disrespect women u because u cannot live vicariously through them! I am a nice and kind person. You can be my servant b|tch. I can’t hire you as my stylist because I’m sure the clothes u got on look like a servant’s outfit! Why u so PRESSED about me?

    • B June 16, 2019

      Wake up

  11. TS13stormiscomimg June 15, 2019

    The only site that is negative about this album. Everyone / online and offline / is praising this album, this is her most ceitically acclaimed project since Confessions On A Dancefloor.

    • Jasmine June 15, 2019

      Talk is good. It creates free promo. Who cares if the reviews are good and bad. What we are not going to do is LIE and say this is the only site with negative reviews. TGJ has not reviewed the album!

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian PISCES 💁🏿‍♀️Not 37 year old TROLLmine nor TRASHmine June 16, 2019

        Exxxxxxxactly #TellemTROLLmine

      • Jasmine NOT Gutter TRASH F.AGGOT JEROME aka ‘Jasmine Da Bi Asian’ June 16, 2019

        My name is not ‘Trollmine’ Jerome. My name is Jasmine. I have been commenting on TGJ since the very beginning. U need to show me some respect! Put some RESPEK on my name queen.

      • Jasmine NOT Gutter TRASH F.AGGOT JEROME aka ‘Jasmine Da Bi Asian’ June 16, 2019

        Didn’t they teach u manners in Mississippi queen? It is not polite or southern to be coming for a woman as hard as u do.

        NO u cannot live my life.

        NO u will never be a real Jasmine.

        NO I will NOT be buying TGJ no matter how much u BEG me to.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian 💁🏿‍♀️ iSlay TROLLmine Rasputia June 17, 2019

        Ok suuuuuure girl(boy) sure

  12. SMH June 15, 2019

    Not bad, but expected with the ticket bundling. She just needs to hope the Jonas Brothers don’t block her from #1.

  13. Theman June 15, 2019

    These are great numbers for her to not have a huge radio hit. And it is really great for this climate. Great stuff here. And the ticket bundle thing is limited because it’s not a huge bundle. She’s outselling a lot of newer artists.

  14. ChrisFresh June 16, 2019

    Wow surprised but ive been playing it

  15. Haterz Gon‘ Hate June 16, 2019

    When you have multiple Madonna albums in your collection and have seen her roll out culturally impacting era after era – it would be LIE to say this is a good Album.

    Confessions was her peak and on albums after that she had some gems (Girl Gone Wild, Candy Shop, Best Goes On, Livin‘ For Love) but this album tried to chase trends so badly instead of focusing on well written and executed song concepts that it ended up coming across trying approximate too hard to be current – ending up in incohesive mess.

    Yes the fans bought it – but let’s not pretend they bought it because it’s a good body of work. Madonna is fortunate enough to have die hard fans who will buy her albums just so they can sing along to them at her By her standards (Ray of Light, Confessions) this album is simply sub standard. #facts.

    • John June 16, 2019

      I believe this is a brilliant body of work

    • Ropeburn June 16, 2019

      I beg to differ. I’ve been a fan since the Blonde Ambition tour and I say this is her best body of work since the Confessions album. My only problem with it is she chose the weakest songs as lead singles.

  16. John June 16, 2019

    I think Madam X is a brilliant album. I wasent expecting streaming to do her any favors as she dosent have a large number on that. It is a pity it hasn’t generated a major hit as I think there would have been a few had it been a different artist. Love to see her get 1 on Billboard’s charts ,she missed out with Rebel Heart due to streaming.

  17. Ron June 16, 2019

    Album is as lame and out of date as she. BORING!

  18. Lil garbaj June 16, 2019

    Very commercial and garbage work.. Made it especially for latin bazaar

  19. Lee mills June 16, 2019

    Its so so good this album is instantly lovable

  20. Charli Cheer Up June 16, 2019

    This is apparently her last album with Interscope Records. She signed a three-album deal with them. Seems like its the one with the most creative freedom and very experimental with all that Latin fusion in it. Wish she’d asked Cardi B for a collab..

  21. pat June 17, 2019

    not bad depending on how u look at it, but then again…anything less would’ve been considered a flop… haven’t listened to it yet… the singles sucked.

  22. Jasmine is a cockroach! June 17, 2019

    Jasmine! You a cockroach!

  23. Jaen Carlos June 18, 2019

    I really hope this is true… It’s her best album in this decade so it deserves that #1 spot.

  24. susan dunn August 31, 2019

    i loved so much of Madonnas older songs . They made me feel the music she has in her as an artist . Im definitly not putting her down – i notice she made a change. Its just not my style this tour. I was exited to buy tickets with my daughter although i decided to sit this out. I was disappointed with madame x. I liked the lively kind this time just not for me. Was disappointed i couldnt go with my daughter who lives in Chicago
