Madonna is getting all the LUV with record extending 38th top 10 hit

The first single from Madonna's 12th studio album, "MDNA," due March 26 (which sports an "L-U-V, Madonna!" cheerleader chant), becomes her 38th Hot 100 top 10, pushing her further ahead of runners-up the Beatles (34).

Madonna first reached the chart's top tier the week of June 16, 1984, when "Borderline" rose to its No. 10 peak. She had last ranked in the region with "4 Minutes," featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, the week of June 28, 2008.

Here is a look at the artists with the most top 10 songs in the Hot 100's 53-year history:

38 -- Madonna

34 -- the Beatles

28 -- Michael Jackson

28 -- Stevie Wonder

27 -- Mariah Carey

27 -- Janet Jackson

27 -- Elton John

25 -- Elvis Presley (whose career predates the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception)

23 -- Whitney Houston

23 -- the Rolling Stones

As previously reported, "Luvin'" jumps 7-6 on the Digital Songs survey with 165,000 downloads sold (up 44%) in the list's tracking week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The period encompassed the first full week following Madonna's performance of the song at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis (Feb. 5).

The track, slides, however, 28-59 on the Radio Songs chart (20 million audience impressions, down 54%, according to Nielsen BDS). "Luvin' " had benefitted last week from special promotion on Clear Channel Media and Entertainment's more than 50 monitored pop stations, which played it at the top of every hour from Friday, Feb. 3, at 9 a.m. ET until the big game's kickoff.

Check Billboard.com tomorrow (Feb. 16), when all rankings, including the Hot 100 in its entirety and the Digital Songs and Radio Songs charts, will be refreshed, as they are each Thursday.

I talk shit about Madge all the time, but you have to give her credit.

I swear I think she has sold her soul to the devil to become this succesful. Either that, or Americans are just really fucking stupid people with low standards. Who knows, could be both.

Lol? Did Ringo and George even have any? I know John and Paul definitely had a good bit.

Different situations though. The Beatles kind of all made eachother, they wrote lyrics and music and played instruments. I think you remove any one of the 4 from the equation and it's just not the same.

The Jackson 5/Jacksons were more studio backed by the Motown machine and later on Gamble and Huff.

I just think they should count for the simple fact that Michael Jackson was the entire Jackson 5/Jacksons. If Michael was never born and they had 8 kids instead of 9, the Jacksons would still be living in Gary, Indiana right now. That group was literally nothing without Michael Jackson.

Damn...didn't know that.

But I guess that sort of proves my point. Those guys all had tons of musical talent and could go off on their own.

How many solo #1's, Top 10's did Jackie, Tito, Marlon, or Jermaine have? Any?

Tito was actually a really good guitar player, just couldn't sing at all. Marlon and Jackie were nothing more than dancers. Jermaine? Lol. Poor guy. To this day he doesn't realize he sucks at singing and that his music is garbage. Although he is a pretty good bass player- I have to give him that.

Marlon didn't have a top ten pop hit, just one song that only became a hit on the R&B charts. Tito never released a solo album or had a solo hit. Jermaine had two top ten hits (Daddy's Home and Let's Get Serious) on the Hot 100. Jackie never did.

I don't care that she's so succesful. I just don't understand it, but then again Lil' Wayne is probably the biggest thing in the music industry right now and has been for the past few years...so......props to Madonna to opening the door for talentless hacks everywhere.

The Give Me All Your Luvin video: behind the scenes

Posted Image

http://www.madonnara...g-with-the-cia/
Megaforce: Working with Madonna is like Working with the CIA

Megaforce, the producers of Madonna’s latest video “Give me all your Luvin’”, recently gave an interview to Swiss newspaper 20Minutes.

Here is a translation by Madonnarama:

About timing…

When we heard the news, we were very excited of course, but had to immediately start working.
The timing was very strict and we had to fly to New York very soon to shoot the video.
We were facing a well-oiled machine and had to find a way to be part of it, without being overwhelmed.

Shooting the video in New York…

Three police cars were continuously driving around the studio and bodyguards were in charge of the security on the set.
Whenever somebody took out a cell phone or camera, they were checking it.
During the whole process, we felt like we were working with the CIA. For instance, whenever we got pictures, they were telling us: “If we find this on the internet, we’ll know it’s coming from you.”
There was also a huge budget ($1.5 million) for the video.

Working with Madonna…

She is very involved in the project and gives her opinion on every decision.
Madonna has complete control. She wants to be the center of attention in the video. She’s very concerned with her looks in the video and wants to look beautiful.
We hadn’t planned to include the footage of her dancing in front of a wall, but she insisted.
We think it kills the narrative, because the final montage is not really our vision anymore. It’s hers.
She was impatient and wanted that everything revolved around her, but that’s it.
The second day of filming she left the studio early, because she had a photoshoot for her album cover the next day. We had to finish the last scene without her.
We expected her to be a diva, but she was more professional than anything else.

About retouching Madonna in the video…

Every female celebrity asks us to do some retouching on the video.
Extra lighting, more brightness, a bit of retouching of the figure are almost always included in every pop video these days.
Nicki Minaj had asked for her body to look like a plastic doll. She knew what her character should look like and did a great job. M.I.A. needed a bit more directing.
They both had a great connection with Madonna.
She was playing the mother role. Madonna sort of takes them under her wing and gives them advice.
It’s probably her way to stay in touch with the younger generation.

Madonna Scores Record-Extending 38th Hot 100 Top 10
Almost 30 years after her arrival on Billboard's charts, Madonna continues to feel L-U-V from her fans. On this week's Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, her latest single, "Give Me All Your Luvin'," featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., bounds 13-10 in its second chart week. The first single from Madonna's 12th studio album, "MDNA," due March 26 (which sports an "L-U-V, Madonna!" cheerleader chant), becomes her 38th Hot 100 top 10, pushing her further ahead of runners-up the Beatles (34). Madonna first reached the chart's top tier the week of June 16, 1984, when "Borderline" rose to its No. 10 peak. She had last ranked in the region with "4 Minutes," featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, the week of June 28, 2008. Here is a look at the artists with the most top 10 songs in the Hot 100's 53-year history: 38, Madonna 34, the Beatles 28, Michael Jackson 28, Stevie Wonder 27, Mariah Carey 27, Janet Jackson 27, Elton John 25, Elvis Presley (whose career predates the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception) 23, Whitney Houston 23, the Rolling Stones As previously reported, "Luvin' " jumps 7-6 on the Digital Songs survey with 165,000 downloads sold (up 44%) in the list's tracking week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The period encompassed the first full week following Madonna's performance of the song at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis (Feb. 5).

Week Ending Feb. 12, 2012. Songs: Luv For Madonna
By Paul Grein at Yahoo| Chart Watch – 20 minutes ago

Madonna-2-15-12"Give Me All Your Luvin'," which Madonna performed with guests Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. at the Super Bowl on Feb. 5, jumps from #13 to #10 in its second week on the Hot 100. This is Madonna's first top 10 hit since "4 Minutes" (featuring Justin Timberlake) ended an 11-week run in June 2008.

This nearly four-year gap between top 10 hits is the longest dry spell of Madonna's career. Her previous longest gap between top 10 hits came between her James Bond theme "Die Another Day," which peaked at #8 in November 2002, and her dance hit "Hung Up," which peaked at #7 in December 2005.

"Give Me All Your Luvin'" is Madonna's 38th top 10 hit. This extends her lead as the artist with the most top 10 hits in the rock era, which began in 1955. Elvis Presley is in second place, with 36 top 10 hits. (Little-known fact: Elvis died on Madonna's 19th birthday: Aug. 16, 1977.) The Beatles are in third place with 34 top 10 hits.

While Madonna's last two top 10 hits have been collabos, she had no duet partners on her first 36 top 10 hits.

Madonna landed her first top 10 hit, "Borderline," nearly 28 years ago, in June 1984.

"Give Me All Your Luvin'" includes a reference to "Lucky Star," which in October 1984 became Madonna's first top five hit on the Hot 100. Many other artists have referred to previous hits in their work. The Beatles' 1967 hit "All You Need Is Love" references their 1964 smash "She Loves You." Sting's 1985 hit "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" references The Police's 1983 classic "Every Breath You Take."

Two Madonna classics are listed on Hot Digital Songs in the first full week after her Super Bowl performance. Her 1989 smash "Like A Prayer" zooms from #112 to #38. Her 1990 smash "Vogue" re-enters at #160. "Prayer" has sold 690K digital copies. "Vogue" has sold 450K.

In addition, the Glee rendition of Madonna's 1987 hit "La Isla Bonita" enters the Hot 100 at #99.


Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" tops the Hot 100 for the second week in a row. Clarkson's two previous #1 hits ("A Moment Like This" and "My Life Would Suck Without You") also had two weeks on top. "Stronger" tops the 1 million mark in digital sales this week.

Adele's former #1 hit "Set Fire To The Rain" holds at #2 for the second week. Both of her previous #1 hits rebound in the wake of her Grammy sweep. "Someone Like You" jumps from #22 to #11 in its 32nd week. "Rolling In The Deep" leaps from #44 to #17 in its 58th week. All three songs are listed in the top 10 on Hot Digital Songs. "Set Fire To The Rain" drops from #2 to #4 (187K), "Someone Like You" rebounds from #23 to #9 (128K) and "Rolling In The Deep" rebounds from #39 to #10 (126K). This marks the first time that a lead artist has had three songs in the top 10 on this chart since Michael Jackson's songs exploded in the weeks after his death in June 2009. In the week after his death, he had six of the top 10.

"We Are Young" by fun. featuring Janelle Monae vaults from #41 to #3 in its eighth week on the Hot 100. The song sold 296K copies this week, which is the largest one-week total by any song so far in 2012. The song was featured in a Chevrolet commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. The song was also spotlighted on Glee on Dec. 6. The Glee version has sold 326K copies in 10 weeks.

LMFAO's "Sexy And I Know It" rebounds from #9 to #4 in the first full week after the group's cameo appearance with Madonna at the Super Bowl. The Glee version of the song (featuring Ricky Martin) debuts at #81. That's inspired casting because Martin was sexy (and he knew it) when he became an overnight pop star on the Grammys in February 1999 with a hip-shaking performance of "La Copa De La Vida (The Cup Of Life)."

LMFAO's previous hit, "Party Rock Anthem" (featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock) this week becomes the first song in digital history to sell 6 million copies in its first year of release. The song tops that plateau in its 48th week, faster than any of the seven previous songs to sell that many digital copies. The old record was held by Adele's "Rolling In The Deep," which topped the 6 million mark in its 54th week.

Whitney Houston's 1992 smash "I Will Always Love You" re-enters the Hot 100 at #7, based on just one full day's worth of explosive sales and airplay following Houston's death on Saturday. Two other Houston hits also re-enter the chart. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" re-opens at #35. "Greatest Love Of All" re-appears at #41. These were among 22 Houston hits that showed up this week on the top 200 Hot Digital Songs chart.

"I Will Always Love You" sold 195K copies this week, which brings the song's digital sales total to 1,105,000. That's probably less than you assumed, but bear in mind that Houston hadn't been "hot" in years.

"I Will Always Love You," which was certified for sales of 4 million physical singles in January 1993, is Houston's first digital million-seller. Her next four biggest digital hits (not just this week, but counting their entire runs) are: "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" (583K), "Greatest Love Of All" (371K), "How Will I Know" (300K) and "I Have Nothing (287K).

I wrote a Chart Watch Extra about Houston's posthumous album and song activity. If you missed it, here's a link.

Here's the low-down on this week's top 10 songs.

1. Kelly Clarkson, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)." The song holds at #1 for the second week in its eighth week on the chart. This is its fourth week in the top 10. Digital sales rank: #2 (260K).

2. Adele, "Set Fire To The Rain." The former #1 song holds at #2 its 24rd week on the chart. This is its eighth week in the top 10. Digital sales rank: #4 (187K).

3. fun. featuring Janelle Monae, "We Are Young." The song vaults from #41 to #3 in its eighth week. This is the first top 10 hit for both acts. Digital sales rank: #1 (296K).

4. LMFAO, "Sexy And I Know It." The former #1 song rebounds from #7 to #4 in its 24th week on the chart. This is its 21st week in the top 10. Digital sales rank: #5 (170K).

5. Flo Rida, "Good Feeling." The song drops from #3 to #5 in its 20th week on the chart. This is its 15th week in the top 10. Digital sales rank: #13 (111K).

6. Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris, "We Found Love." The former #1 song drops from #4 to #6 in its 21st week on the chart. This is its 20th week in the top 10. Digital sales rank: #17 (89K).

7. Whitney Houston, "I Will Always Love You." The former #1 song re-enters at #7. This is its 17th week in the top 10. Digital sales rank: #3 (195K).

8. David Guetta featuring Nicki Minaj, "Turn Me On." The song drops from #5 to #8 in its 11th week on the chart. This is its fifth week in the top 10. The song tops the 1 million mark in digital sales this week. Digital sales rank: #8 (139K).

9. Tyga, "Rack City." The song drops from #7 to #9 in its 12th week on the chart. This is its fourth week in the top 10. The song tops the 1 million mark in digital sales this week. Digital sales rank: #7 (139K).

10. Madonna featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., "Give Me All Your Luvin." The song jumps from #13 to #10 in its second week. This is the 38th top 10 hit for Madonna, the sixth for Minaj and the second for M.I.A. Digital sales rank: #6 (165K).

Well they should included in my strong not so humble opinion.

Then you need to summarize all the work of artists in the group + solo.
Then we have:
Paul McCartney - 43
John - 42
Michael Jackson - 40

wink
All the hits are included in the legacy of each artist, but to summarize solo work and group work - is wrong because it is two separate acts.
This has huge advantages too.
For example, Paul, John and Michael are included in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice ...

Rihanna has 26 Top 10 hits after only 5 years. Wow .....
After 10 years she will have at least 40 .... Madness. eek

MADONNA SCORES 38TH TOP 10 - GMAYL AT @#10
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU @ #7


Whitney Houston returns to the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 this week as her signature hit from 1992 -- it reigned for 14 weeks -- "I Will Always Love You" re-enters at No. 7, fueled by an enormous resurgence in digital sales (195,000, up 6723%, according to Nielsen SoundScan) and radio airplay (18 million audience impressions, up 915%, according to Nielsen BDS).

Whitney Re-Enters Billboard 200 Top 10

Houston places two other former No. 1s on the chart: "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" (from 1987) at No. 35 and "Greatest Love of All" (1986) at No. 41.

While historically, catalog or recurrent songs have not been eligible for inclusion on the Hot 100, this is not the first time Billboard has charted such activity. As recently as 2001, following the attacks of Sept. 11, the Hot 100 welcomed Lee Greenwood's 1984 country hit "God Bless the USA" and Houston's spine-tingling rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner," the latter of which had reached the chart's top 20 a decade earlier. At the time, the inclusion of these songs properly captured the musical mood as the nation reacted to that tragic day.

"As the digital age has progressed," says Billboard director of charts Silvio Pietroluongo, "with the immediacy it provides, the line has blurred between the relevancy of new and older recordings, which are for the most part equally accessible from one's home computer."

"Going forward we feel that it is the proper move to allow older titles posting enough activity to return to the Hot 100 if ranking in the chart's upper half." (Billboard's policy of removing descending songs from the Hot 100 after 20 weeks if ranking below No. 50 remains unchanged).

Houston's posthumous chart activity is hardly the only headlines on this week's Hot 100.

Kelly Clarkson logs a second week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," which claims top Airplay Gainer honors for a second week. The song soars 15-7 on Radio Songs (76 million, up 31%). On Digital Songs, "Stronger" slips 1-2, although with a 10% gain to 260,000.

Adele's former two-week No. 1 "Set Fire to the Rain" holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100. The song becomes her third No. 1 on Radio Songs, following "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You," as it gains by 7% to 136 million. "Rain" drops 2-4 on Digital Songs but with a 14% improvement to 187,000.

Following its exposure in Chevrolet's Sonic Super Bowl ad Feb. 5, fun.'s "We Are Young," featuring Janelle Monae, vaults 41-3 as the Hot 100's top Digital Gainer for a second week, powering 22-1 on Digital Songs (296,000 downloads, up 338%). On last week's Hot 100, the song had bounded 63-41, fueled by early sales gains owed to its TV limelight (as last week's sales tracking period ended mere hours after the Super Bowl the night of Feb. 5).

After LMFAO performed with Madonna as part of the Super Bowl's halftime show, the duo's former two-week No. 1 "Sexy and I Know It" rebounds 9-4 on the Hot 100. (The "Glee" cast's cover of the self-confidence [confi-dance?] anthem, featuring Ricky Martin, concurrently debuts at No. 81).

Flo Rida's "Good Feeling" descends 3-5 on the Hot 100; Rihanna's former 10-week topper "We Found Love," featuring Calvin Harris, drops 4-6; David Guetta's "Turn Me On," featuring Nicki Minaj, slides 5-8; and, Tyga's "Rack City" falls 7-9.

Rounding out the top 10, Madonna's "Give Me All Your Luvin'," featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A, bounds 13-10 on the Hot 100 to become Madonna's record-extending 38th top 10. (The Beatles ranks second with 34).

"Luvin'" jumps 7-6 on the Digital Songs survey with 165,000 downloads sold (up 44%) in the list's tracking week. The period encompassed the first full week following Madonna's Super Bowl halftime performance.

The single has actually collapsed and its doing very badly in the airplay. Despite her record label clear channel doing such a massive promotion the airplay has just killed the single.

The digital downloads helped this song but the digital download formula currently helps songs which dont do well in airplay i am sure billboard will revise this formula soon

I knew the airplay would drastically decrease. She's old and people don't like to hear old singers on the radio. This will likely be the only hit off the album. I'm sure the other singles will be huge flops like the 2nd and 3rd singles off Hard Candy. Oh well!

This song is a failure in the world, because it's just obscenely weak.
if the song was at least average, it would have got at least the Top 5 in the U.S., and in the top 3 in all other major markets around the world.

I think the next single will be a lot better in the charts

Girls gone wild is actually a decent song

Lol? Did Ringo and George even have any? I know John and Paul definitely had a good bit.

Different situations though. The Beatles kind of all made eachother, they wrote lyrics and music and played instruments. I think you remove any one of the 4 from the equation and it's just not the same.

The Jackson 5/Jacksons were more studio backed by the Motown machine and later on Gamble and Huff.

I just think they should count for the simple fact that Michael Jackson was the entire Jackson 5/Jacksons. If Michael was never born and they had 8 kids instead of 9, the Jacksons would still be living in Gary, Indiana right now. That group was literally nothing without Michael Jackson.

Yeah all of the ex-Beatles had number-one hits and top ten singles after leaving the group in the early '70s.

Paul's top ten hits/number-one's:

"Another Day"

"Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey"
"Coming Up"

"Ebony & Ivory"

"Take It Away"

"The Girl is Mine"

"Say Say Say"

"No More Lonely Nights"

"Spies Like Us"

And that doesn't even include Wings

Silly Love Songs, Listen to What the Man Said, My Love, Live & Let Die, etc, etc (they had 14 according to Wiki)

Here is a look at the artists with the most top 10 songs in the Hot 100's 53-year history:

38 -- Madonna

34 -- the Beatles

28 -- Michael Jackson

28 -- Stevie Wonder

27 -- Mariah Carey

27 -- Janet Jackson

27 -- Elton John

25 -- Elvis Presley (whose career predates the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception)

23 -- Whitney Houston

23 -- the Rolling Stones

hmmm on this list,the person most likely to come close to Madonna's position is Mariah Carey in the future.

I know, right. Don't they have a lip sync and disposable American Idol performance to brag about being #1 on iTunes for 24 hours, or something? Madonna just scored her 38th top 10 hit, and her album and [stadium] tour are selling out months before they're unleashed…yet certain fans of Janet (who is playing theaters, hasn't had a top 10 hit in 11 years and is currently without a record deal) still have the audacity to try and come around and be cocky about her. Odd.

Funny how I don't see fans of someone like Celine Dion, who is much much closer to Madonna in overall career stats, bothering to do the same. That would make sense. But Janet? Nah.

She tends to do that, doesn't she? Madonna always comes back with a proverbial punch in the face to the shit-talking naysayers. They attempt to question her talent and write her off...and BAM: another top 10 hit...BAM: most watched Superbowl performance in history...BAM: inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...BAM: another record breaking tour...BAM: a record and touring contract worth a combined $160 million.

If I were a Madonna detractor, I would just hush at this point because she proves over and over that she's a tough adversary to have.

Just because one's a fan of a "real musician" don't mean he should be blasted for digging someone that is not perceived as a "real musician". lol

Badu's let it be known he has dug Madonna since...forever. lol

Anyways, not surprised it became a top ten hit. The Super Bowl exposure helped her after all. It's number-one in Canada. Ironically enough it's only her second number-one hit in the country.

The reason it is in top 10 is coz the current formula favours downloads more then airplay. Downloads have been increasing and billboard will sooner or later need to rebalance the formula to have equal contribution from airplay and downloads.

Otherwise u will have top 10 hits with songs which just sell well in one week and disappear due to loyal fanbase but no one will ever remember since they never got any airplay

that is the right formula..radio stations can't have that much power...it should be based on demand and sales can express that better.

You always butt in to a conversation and either half ass read the convo or dont bother to completly read what was said.

The Madonna stans in here were bashing people because of their comments of the song and calling people out their names because of their opinion. Im not blasting anyone but Im not going to allow someone to call me out my name either just for MY OPINION.

And I would think if someone listens or calls themselves an Erykah Badu junkie they would understand why some of the posters made the comments they did about that dumb stupid chessy generic song.

Sales mean a singer with a fan base can have a quick hit for one week and the song is gone. Tkae example of u "cant touch this" reached only #9 but everyone knows about it.

Instead u can have "one min" top 10 with no airplay and no one even knows which song it was.

There is something wrong there.

corporate radio playlist is the same coporation which is her record label i seriously thing it wont even have got an audience of 5mil if she wasnt signed to them

However are yall really playing this in yourcar with the top down?

I want her to create some shit that I can listen to in public .

Thats why Im privy to Janet.

Im craving for some debut type of material thats at least club friendly and not teen mom friendly at this late in the game. Pieces of Confessions, hard Candy, and ROL was there imo.

MG you dont think Like A Prayer is a good song? True Blue a nice throwback ditty? Oh Father? Borderline a simple melody turned into a tasty pop confection thats easily hummable? Deeper and Depper isnt that jam? Take A Bow? Ray Of Light? Dress You Up (even though the music is tinny in production and back ground ahhs need three soul sistas doin it)? Nothing Fails form the hideous but misunderstood American Life?

granted, she has made some bullshit..a lot..but come on she can write decent pop songs here and there.

I mean (and Im going to regret this statement)..she had some of the current producer/artisst willing to work with her on Hard candy...Neptunes, Kanye, Timberlake etc...and even when she was relevant, she had the mighty Prince...yeah him..the purple one..doing a duet with her.

Don't underestimate her talents. She wouldn't be able to sell millions of singes and sell out stadiums around the world and have a incredibly successful career spanning nearly 30 years and be the template for nearly every female pop performer who's come along ever since, if she was just good at marketing herself. People like her music.

Anyone who's ever seen her in concert knows what star quality and charisma she has which adds to her music. She's always written and made great pop songs, songs that can get in your head and brought them to life with amazing music videos which add to the song. The themes of concerts, videos and songs have always been interesting and, up until recently, stayed away from mainstream trends and tastes. She's been subversive and provocative to make people think and quaestion themselves, not just for attention.

She's a visual artist... image, videos, performances are just as important as the music. Same as Bowie was. She's never sold herself as the best singer or musician, she just tries her best to make good music. Jimi Hendrix wasn't a great singer, does that mean his music is bad? Obviously no.

Lastly, her attitude and strength are incredibly appealing to her fans as she has always done exactly what she has wanted with her life and career and even when she's taken crap for it, she carries on. She's in control. She's made it ok for outsiders to feel good about themselves and not feel like they have to be like everyone else.

Just because none of the above is important to you doesn't mean it isn't to millions of other people.

People saying she untalented, can't sing, can't dance, can't act, can't direct, she's old, a couger, got wrinkly hands and men's arms, had work on her face and is nothing more than a whore hasn't stopped her from carrying on for the past 30 years and it never will.

I don't know about anyone else, but I have never bought anyone's music because of how well they were able to "market" themselves. It was always because I liked their music - period. So I call bullshit on the claim that Madonna isn't an artist and that her only talent is in marketing herself. That's an opinion, a bias and stupid one, that I contradict.

What's not an opinion, though, is the fact that Madonna tops the list of the artist with the most top 10 singles in history. Don't like it? Tough. There's nothing you can say, do or project to negate that reality.

If they're gonna include the J5/Jacksons' top ten hits, might as well include Paul's, Ringo's, George's and John's top ten hits after they left the Beatles.

Lol? Did Ringo and George even have any? I know John and Paul definitely had a good bit.

Different situations though. The Beatles kind of all made eachother, they wrote lyrics and music and played instruments. I think you remove any one of the 4 from the equation and it's just not the same.

The Jackson 5/Jacksons were more studio backed by the Motown machine and later on Gamble and Huff.

I just think they should count for the simple fact that Michael Jackson was the entire Jackson 5/Jacksons. If Michael was never born and they had 8 kids instead of 9, the Jacksons would still be living in Gary, Indiana right now. That group was literally nothing without Michael Jackson.

Well the breakdown on SOLO Beatles works in the Top 10 are

Paul 22 (also with Wings)

John 8

George 5

Ringo 7

shuts down the theory on RINGO, he had almost more than John, and 2 came after John's death so, who knows where those 2 songs would have landed.

I think u have to include it, though i understand the point of it being seperate, but it can be said that Paul sang lead on alot of the Beatle Top 10's too, so that being said PAUL has 56 top 10's and i doubt that is going to be eclipsed by anyone.

The thing is nobody is overrating her. She's never been a bastion of the apex of music like a Bob Dylan etc. I realize many folks regard her music as disposable but I think that relates ot the disservice the industry (grammy etc etc) does with pop and rnb artists/musicians by dismissing them (see The Funk Bros for example). And that is because its pop, disposable pop, rnb, bullshit hybrid rnb, it isnt art or worthy. Only rock music is. I think when you deride Madonna it kind of rides close to that dismissal of specif genres that several talented but unheralded people are a part of. At least give her creidt as one artist who gives that type of music some credibility and has at times taken it to a more "respectable" level by the music industry. Thats the only beef I realy have with her as she can be so deep with it, give it more substance than the typical throwaway artist but then come back with some bs L.U.V. Madonna cheer song etc. WTF?

As a lover of music.....that the fact that she is even still around makes her overrated in my book.

This woman is a NON talent in my book. Am I mad at her 4 trying? No.

Do I apprecaited her work? Not on any level from a musical standpoint. Anyone...........I repeat anyone can hire certain producers 2 make them look/sound decent. That is all she has ever done and these days, that is 90% of the industry.

By that logic Diana would be on there with 30.

I agree.Madonna really has nothing to prove.Still,the occasional Top 10 hit is a nice thing to have wink

She's got 2 more albums on her deal, I think she can reach 40 based on downloads of the next two albums' first singles.

Sales mean a singer with a fan base can have a quick hit for one week and the song is gone. Tkae example of u "cant touch this" reached only #9 but everyone knows about it.

Instead u can have "one min" top 10 with no airplay and no one even knows which song it was.

There is something wrong there.

corporate radio playlist is the same coporation which is her record label i seriously thing it wont even have got an audience of 5mil if she wasnt signed to them

ok. people paying money for a song means less than people 'knowing' the song from the radio -- whatever

yes she manages those one week spikes and its gone so fast. The total number of downloads will not compare to the other songs. If MJ was around and releasing songs he could manage not top 10 spikes but #1 spikes coz he has the most rabid fans. I am sure billboard will change the formula to remove these one week spikes.

and the how many hits thing is tired as much as the naysayer comments..of course if someone keeps going they are bound to surpass Elvis, Beatles etc etc..they were only in the game for so long..not to take away from even remaining relevant enough to keep having hits etc but just sayin'....

oh, so that explains why his last album had a single peak at the same exact position as hers.

it would be cooler if you just said "MJ hasn't had as many solo top 10 hits as Madonna, damn it, that untalented ho is undeserving of his level of greatness" or something...be real.

i love madonna, mj, janet, and prince all equally, and i will say when they are sucking and half assing it, and i will say when their careers are OVAH! (Janet), getting boring with their new stuff (Prince), they are just too high for the past decade to givva fuck (Michael), or just acting like a self-important old slut (Madonna), but I genuinely love a) Madonna's new song and b) am so happy that she can still pull a top 10 out of her ass while trash like Kelly Clarkson, Adele, and corny techno-hip hop shit are all over the charts. why hate on her success? her having another big hit that people are paying to download takes nothing away from MJ's success. and it doesn't make Janet's career any more dead.

I don't know about anyone else, but I have never bought anyone's music because of how well they were able to "market" themselves. It was always because I liked their music - period. So I call bullshit on the claim that Madonna isn't an artist and that her only talent is in marketing herself. That's an opinion, a bias and stupid one, that I contradict.

What's not an opinion, though, is the fact that Madonna tops the list of the artist with the most top 10 singles in history. Don't like it? Tough. There's nothing you can say, do or project to negate that reality.

[Edited 2/17/12 10:00am]

There are a ton of people who buy certain music because it is "popular" do 2 so, even if they don't like it.

…and there are tons more people who don't. I don't own Adele's album, despite how over-saturated its been in media. I buy music that I like by artists I like, period.

Madonna's not some new fad that just came out 2-3 years ago. Everyone knows who she is, everyone knows what does and everyone knows what her music generally sounds like…and if after almost 30 years she's still selling albums (over 350 million records sold), still having top 10 singles (and now has more than anyone else in history), still having record breaking tours, and is in the R&RHOF...then clearly her music must be appealing enough to the general public. If Madonna was all about the marketing and her music didn't live up to it, she wouldn't have made it out of the 1980s. The jig would have been up years ago.

Your argument defies logic. Madonna's music career is legendary, and her catalog is worth hundreds of millions. She has fans…millions of them…who are diligent in their devotion who completely disagree with your stance --- and prove it with their wallets.

Deal with it.

That's a lie, because if you truly didn't give a crap about Madonna or her career then you wouldn't be in this thread, several posts in, trying to argue some illogical opinion against her that's being debunked. neutral

And "taste" is subjective. Stats aren't. The stats are on Madonna's side.

And in the meantime, Madonna's stats remain untouched. Doesn't matter if you don't like her music. Doesn't matter if you don't think she's talented. Doesn't matter if you don't like her personally.

When you consider that Off the Wall had 3 top 10s, Thriller and Bad both had 7 Top 10s each and at least 4 more off dangerous, that brings the total close to 28 alone.

If nothing else you have to admire Madonna's longevity, 38 Top 10s and a 29 year chart career. This from someone, many people in 1984/85 wrote off as a typical 80s pop act that would last 3 albums tops. Madonna seems to reinevent herself with every album and it works. She's also a brood hen to countless stars like Britney, Pink, Christina, Gaga (there I said it, shes a Madonna's daughter wannabe) and no doubt to singers n other language markets (Are there any Mexican/Latina Madonna type singers out there).

The best thing about it, is Madonna does not give a fuck and yet its obvious shes a stickler for quality control. I am more a fan of her early (1990 and earlier) stuff though, although her later music is at least listenable. I see is living out her Marilyn Monroe fantasy too.

Madonna is the type of star record companies dream of, she seldom delivers a stinker and she always has an appeal, that song as unremarkable and silly as it was, is still unbelievably catchy, and thats what gets the sales.

Prince is GOD!!

you know, I give her a lot of credit for his success. You have to.

I still don't understand it one bit. She has very little raw musical talent.

She is basically Britney Spears of her generation, but bigger. Sad thing is, I think Britney is probably a better singer. And Britney fucking sucks at singing.

You're just wrong. eek I'm not a big fan of Madonna and I really like 10-15 songs in her discography, BUT Madonna's voice is much better than Britney's voice.

Britney had a good voice as a child, then I can not even call her an average singer, but Madonna in the late 90's was a decent singer.

Although the voices for both of them is not the most important factor.

This managing a top 10 peak is like Judas peaking at #10: it doesn't make it a hit. This is going to plummet next week. Internationally, it's underperforming as well - which is quite surprising, given how well 4 Minutes did. Hopefully the second single will be of higher quality.
