Madonna's 'MDNA' Tops US Album Chart

Ye Olde Vampyre's is no doubt feasting on a bowl of chyldryn this morning in celebration. MDNA sold 359,000 copies in its first week, enough to easily put it at #1 on Billboard's Top 200. This marks Madge's eighth chart-topping album, which puts her in second place among broads, just behind Barbra Streisand, who has nine.

While Vampyre's previous LP Hard Candy "only" opened with 280,000, MDNA had a special promotion tied in with it where those who purchased tickets for Madonna's upcoming tour had the option to receive a copy of the album, either a physical or download version, as part of their purchase. Those who chose to receive a copy contributed to the first-week sales.
