‘Madame X’ takes the top spot.

UPDATE: It’s official! Madonna’s new album is No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving the Queen of Pop her ninth No. 1 of her career.

She sold a total of 95,000 equivalent album units. Madonna has the second-most No. 1 albums of her career (Barbra Streisand leads the pack with 11).

Celebrate in Exhale!

Despite one major music review publication eviscerating Madonna’s latest release, it’s on track to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Thanks to a tour bundling deal, Madame X will open with 90-100k sales plus streaming, according to an estimate from Hits Daily Double. This marks her first No. 1 since 2012’s MDNA.

There’s a lot to absorb in the world of Madonna at the moment. She’s down to film a music video for “Faz Gostoso,” featuring Anitta, if she had the budget. However, there’s a video for “God Control” on the way.

An early congratulations are in order!
