As we move into the final two days of the June 14-20 tracking period, Madonna’s “Madame X” is the clear frontrunner for #1 on the US album sales and consumption charts.
The latest projection from Hits Daily Double has the album selling 90-100K pure US copies this week. With units from track sales and streams included, “Madame X” should generate 95-105K in total consumption.
Beyond the general enthusiasm one would expect for a new Madonna album, “Madame X” is generating from bundles and direct-to-consumer offers.
Should the projection hold up, “Madame X” will be Madonna’s 9th #1 album in the US — and her first since “MDNA” in 2012.
