Madonna’s ‘Bedtime Stories’ Soars To #1 on iTunes Over 25 Years After Its Debut

Published: Thursday 30th Apr 2020 by Rashad

It’s been over 25 years since Madonna‘s ‘Take A Bow’-housing project ‘Bedtime Stories’ took its final bow on the Billboard 200, but reawakened interest on the real time iTunes sales chart could help the LP return for an encore performance.

Because, much like her nemeses Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson (as we reported here), the Queen of Pop is reigning over the tally with one of her discography’s most prized entries of yesteryear.

Details inside:

As of time reported, Madge’s 1994 album has blazed iTunes sales chart to claim its top spot.  Passing current hitmakers like NCT DREAM, Fiona Apple, and more, the project – the diva’s most R&B leaning effort yet – is benefiting from a temporary $4.99 sale.

In its day, the album – jam-packed with hits ‘Take a Bow,’ ‘Secret,’ ‘Human Nature,’ and ‘Bedtime Story’ – peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200.

    This and Erotica are really underrated albums

    • Bluebird April 30, 2020

      Take a Bow with Babyface and Love Tried To Welcome me are CLASSICS and her vocals for the first and only time- are beautiful on both. This is her BEST VOCAL album to date

      • Rashad April 30, 2020

        Her vocals were pretty from Bedtime Stories, Ray of Light, Music, American Life and Confessions. Her voice changed during the Hard Candy era.

        Ray of Light is my fav album and era but Bedtime Stories is great too.

    I’m glad this generation finally appreciated good music during this apocalypse. Guess we are sick of those untalented, basic newbies.

      Set a trend my a**! The sh!t is on sale for $4.99. That’s nothing new. Let’s see it sell at the original price.

      • Only Facts April 30, 2020

        4 by Beyoncé was sold for $4.99 a month ago….that s*** didn’t fit #1 on iTunes. Bye

      • Ms.+Fish April 30, 2020

    • HavanaONana April 30, 2020


      Something coming over hmmmmmm, my baby’s got a secret lol

    • Claude Remains April 30, 2020

      Just one of Madonna’s many songs about masturbation!!!

      • HavanaONana April 30, 2020

        Right lol. I love it

  7. Bluebird April 30, 2020

    her most beautifully sung album ever.

  8. Keith April 30, 2020

    Mariah still owns this phenomenon. It gets less fun every time some old album moves to #1 on iTunes. It feels like a catalog money grab by label conglomerates…That being said, Bedtime Stories was a good album.

    • Ms.+Fish May 1, 2020

      Exactly when Mariah does it, it’s organic and fan driven.

  9. HavanaONana April 30, 2020

    Queen of Pop reigns Supremes, congratulations Madonna?

  10. Queen of Pop Madonna April 30, 2020

    Thanks for finally posting this TGJ!!! ???

    Congratulations Queen of Pop Madonna???

  11. Susan April 30, 2020

    So nobody is talking about how savage originally only had 3 writers but the remix has 9? So Beyonce need SIX people to write her part? Really? Damn gurl

    • B**** April 30, 2020

      Well she’s illiterate with no high school diploma…what did you expect? Lol

    • Ropeburn April 30, 2020

      Everybody been clocked Beyonce for being an illiterate pretender with fake songwriting credits since Irreplaceable.

    • PinotNoir April 30, 2020

      Not counting cue cards holders. ?

  12. PinotNoir April 30, 2020

    Whitney HATED her for working with Babyface to the point Madge started dreaming of losing a #1 to Whitney. Nippy was gangsta even in dreams. ?

    • HavanaONana April 30, 2020

      Yeah I’ve read about that
      The funny thing too is that both Whitney and Madonna are female LEOs lol

      • PinotNoir April 30, 2020

        Lionesses indeed. Except Madge is a self-conscious Virgo moon (hence her perfectionism) and Aquarius rising (norm-defying rebellion). Whitney’s rising was in Pisces (she’ll attack you psychically in your dreams) and moon in Aries (then shank you in person!) ?

        You read about it – now I present you the actual footage. ? [starts at 0:40 mark]

    Seems like Madonna and Mariah Carey are bigger than Janet Jackson. Nothing we didn´t know.

    • Kenny May 1, 2020

      Janet is the GOAT!!!
