Hits Daily Double is reporting that Madonna's latest effort MDNA sold 357,943 copies in its first week in the USA for # 1. This easily beats the pop diva's last effort HARD CANDY, which moved 280,000 copies.
Madonna's massive first week tally also beats just about all of her fellow divas. Beyonce's last CD sold 317,000 copies in week one, while Britney Spears moved 276,000 and Rihanna & Katy Perry both had first week sales of around 200,000.
Official Soundscan numbers are to be released soon.
South American fans, are you ready? Plans are that Madonna's South America dates will be announced this week!
"South America dates should get announced this week.. Thats the plan.. Stay tuned.." Madonna's manager, Guy Oseary, tweeted.
Long-time Madonna's dancer Sofia Boutella has revealed how working with the Queen of Pop prepared her for StreetDance 2.
Sofia toured with Madonna twice (Confessions Tour, Sticky & Sweet Tour) and most recently performed alongside her at the Super Bowl halftime show.
"It's amazing to work with her. She's a really strong woman and she's really inspiring," Sofia said. "Working with her taught me a lot in terms of discipline and what it takes to accomplish what you want artistically. She's also a great woman and an amazing mother. It has been eight years since I started working with her."
"When you dance with Madonna, you're not only dancing," adds Sofia. "She's also telling stories so you are acting as well. So it felt natural to come into acting."
"My kids are brutally honest when it comes to what they don't like," Madonna told The Sun. "They have no tact whatsoever. They'll just say, 'Mum, get that song off' even when mine. It's hurtful but at least they're honest."
Madonna also talked about how hard she is working for her upcoming 2012 World Tour. "I have to say that in more than 25 years of performing I have never worked so hard or been so scrupulous," confesses Madonna. "Or freaked out more than I have at the minute."
"My whole life has been a combination of hard work and prayer. Preparation is essential but you need as many angels watching over you as possible as well. I'm getting ready for rehearsing my world tour so I have been in training."
"There's been lots of cardio and I'm doing a combination of pilates and dance cardio. And there's been plenty of skipping rope work. The envelope I'm pushing for is as spectacular a show as I can. It should be a feast for the eyes and ears."
The large bottle of Madonna's Truth or Dare Fragrance comes with a copy of the standard "clean" version of MDNA. The perfume is selling like hot cakes, according to the sales rep, so this is also a good news for the album.
When you purchase the $150 gift set, you will receive a ticket to an exclusive Madonna in-store appreance at the NYC Macy's in 34th st on April 12th, 2012. It will be an intimate release party.
