Legendary pop icon Madonna is set to notch up her 5th consecutive #1 album with the recently released ‘M.D.N.A.’ Overall, it will serve as her 8th #1 album altogether.
According to Hitsdailydouble, ‘M.D.N.A.’ is projected to sell 325-350k in the US. Over in the UK, ‘M.D.N.A.’ will debut at #1 on next week’s album chart, serving as her 12th #1 LP there. Such a feat also means she will surpass Elvis Presley‘s record of 11 number ones. Despite very little promo, the album is #1 everywhere, thus cementing Madonna’s 30-year-old status in music. This era has not been an easy ride for Madonna and she’s recieved quite a bit of flack along the way. Her Superbowl performance came under criticism when rapper M.I.A. caused offense by middle fingering the audience on live TV. She was then deemed a bitter old has-been by a chuckload of little monsters for calling Lady Gaga‘s music “reductive”, and lastly, her latest ‘Girl Gone Wild’ visual was semi-banned on Youtube for being too steamy. That of course hasn’t stopped the album from securing decent first week sales. The singer has been preparing for her anticipated world tour in support of the album, so concertgoers will likely see the 53-year-old mother of four continuing to make drug references on stage and doing her trademark palates-dance moves.
