Madonna Lands at No. 1 With ‘MDNA,’ Returns to Twitter for the Day
Congrats to Madonna, since ‘MDNA’ landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart this week, selling 359,000 copies its first week in stores. To celebrate and share the good news, Madge will reconnect with her fans by making a Twitter reprise today (April 4.)
That statistical bow marks the biggest-selling first week for an album in 2012. It’s also Madge’s fifth No. 1 in a row. She left Warner Bros. after a long and successful relationship, but she obviously brought her magic touch to her new home at Interscope.
Some cool stats about ‘MDNA': The album debuted No. 1 on iTunes charts in 40 countries, enjoying the biggest one-day pre-sale by any artist in iTunes history. Her super sexy video for ‘Girl Gone Wild’ is her most viewed clip on YouTube, having notched 32 million views. It’s also not without controversy, since it was restricted for users under a certain age.
The Material Girl joined Twitter for a single day to promote ‘MDNA’ last Monday (March 26.) She chatted with fans all day long and even engaged in a back and forth with electronic artist Deadmau5 over comments she made at the Ultra Music Festival, which he disapproved of. The queen of pop music will return to the social networking site to exchange 140-character messages with her fans today. Her handle is @MadonnaMDNADay. So start following her. if you didn’t get to chat with Madge on release day, now’s your chance to right that wrong.
We’d love to see Lady Gaga send her a message on Twitter and see if a conversation ensues. #TwoMuchDivaForOneSocialNetwork.
