That’s another No. 1 spot for Madonna.
The pop icon has landed her ninth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.
Billboard reports that Madonna’s Madame X has landed the No. 1 opening with 95,000 equivalent album units earned in the US in the week ending June 20 with 90,000 of those in album sales. The album was released via Interscope Records on June 14.
The last time Madonna landed the No. 1 spot on the chart was in 2012, with MDNA. Madonna’s other No. 1 albums include: Hard Candy (2008); Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005); American Life (2003); Music (2000); Like a Prayer (1989); True Blue (1986); and Like a Virgin (1985).
Madonna’s No. 1 titles are only second to Barbara Streisand’s who has landed atop 11 times. The Beatles lead the general pack with 19, followed by Jay-Z with 14, Streisand and Bruce Springsteen both with 11 and Elvis Presley with 10. Eminem, Garth Brooks, Madonna and The Rolling Stones all tie with nine.
