MDNA certified Gold in India – and more chart news
MDNA is the fastest selling international album in India this year and has been certified Gold in the first week of release.
In a country where the music industry is hugely affected by piracy, any foreign artist selling non-illegal copies and even going gold it’s a feat.
Devraj Sanyal, Managing Director at Universal Music India commented:
“It’s tough to speak about a diva like Madonna. She is the epitome of everything music stands for and has been for the last two decades. `MDNA’ is a record that will excite the oldest Madonna fans as it will excite the youth with her eclectic mix of electronica & new world pop. The fact that she can still achieve Gold status on launch itself proves that she is and will continue to be the real pop diva of our times.”
