More MDNA Number Ones Worldwide
Madonna lands another Number One album worldwide as MDNA enters atop the Chart in Canada selling 32,000 units. Her previous album ranked from the 17,000 copies of the Celebration collection and the 18,000 units of American Life to the higher numbers of Music (50,300), Hard Candy (58,000) and Ray of Light (59,900) and the record 74,000 copies sold by Confessions on a Dance Floor.
MDNA also debuts at Number 1 in the charts of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Both the Slovak and the Czech Album charts have been mashed together this year by the IFPI branch of both countries, so there is one official chart but they still count the positions as separate countries. On the singles charts, they still have separate top 100 singles for each country.
In Croatia, MDNA debuts on the Top of both the foreign artists and the overall albums chart.
In Brazil MDNA has been certified both Gold and Platinum by the Associaçao Brasileira dos Produtores de Discos.
The new album enters at Number 2 in the Swiss Albums Chart behind local act Züri West – but outselling both Unheiling and Silbermond – two very strong competitors in the country.
In Argentina the Deluxe Edition of MDNA is on top of the chart after entering at #5 last week while the Standard edition debuts at #5 this week.
In Spain Madonna enters the Official Spanish Chart at Number 1… yet another #1 for MDNA – and a Gold certification for sales of 20,000 copies.
MDNA is also Number 1 in the Mexican unofficial Mix-Up chart, a good sign towards the Official album chart to be released later this week.
In more news from Japan following yesterday’s report on the overall Oricon chart, not only MDNA is #1 on their official International Artists Album chart (and #4 at the overall one), but The Complete Studio Album set is also #2 on the list, placing Madonna on the first two spots of the chart.
