Madonna vs. Lionel Richie? It feels like the 1980s, but this chart drama is happening in 2012. Reports say that Madonna‘s “MDNA” CD will have the biggest second week drop in chart history. When all the numbers are in, her number one CD will have fallen by 88%, from 359,000 copies to about 46,000.
Most of Madonna’s first week sales were CDs that were included (for free) in the sale of concert tickets. This bundle pushed up Madonna’s numbers higher than Lionel Richie and his 'Tuskegee' CD, which should finish much higher than 'MDNA' this week.
