Madonna New Music Stiffs Worldwide

After all of hype last week Madonna has sure been left holding one big stiff. The six new Madonna songs have flopped globally.

After rushing out the six new songs exactly one week ago, all songs have failed to make the Australian Top 100 this week, indicating that at best the biggest seller of the bunch would have sold less than 1400 units.

The six songs released to iTunes last Sunday (December 21) were ‘Unapologetic Bitch’, ‘Living For Love’, ‘Illuminati’, ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’, ‘Devil Pray’ and ‘Ghost Town’. The highest ranking one on iTunes seven days later (December 28) was ‘Living For Love’ at 147.

As of Sunday December 28, 2015 ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’ is at no. 160, ‘Ghosttown’ is at no. 165, ‘Devil Pray’ is at no. 180 and ‘Unapologetic Bitch’ is at no.197. The other track ‘Illuminati’ has vacated the Top 200 after just one week.

In America the figures are even worse. The highest charting new Madonna song in America as of today is ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’ at 176.

In the UK ‘Ghosttown’ is the highest ranking song today at no. 191 on iTunes.

Madonna rushed the six songs from her next album ‘Rebel Heart’ out suddenly after 10 demo songs leaked earlier.

Speaking to Billboard when Madonna heard of the leak she told Keith Caulfield, “Shit, this is the age that we’re living in. It’s crazy. I mean, look at what’s going on with Sony Pictures. It’s just the age that we’re living in. It’s crazy times. The Internet is as constructive and helpful in bringing to people together as it is in doing dangerous things and hurting people. It’s a double-edged sword.

The lack of success of the officially released songs must now be a real concern to Madonna and her record label Universal who now seriously face the prospect that if fans wouldn’t “get out of bed” for six new Madonna songs, they are unlikely to be hungry for more.

The ‘Rebel Heart’ album will be released in full in March.
