Madonna's "Rebel Heart" becomes her 11th No. 1 album in Australia


Featured Posts



The Queen of Pop is back on the throne Down Under.  

Madonna's new album Rebel Heart has debuted at the top spot on the ARIA Albums Chart, becoming her 11th No. 1 in Australia, a run that stretches back to True Blue which reached the summit in August 1986.

The pop veteran now draws level with U2 for the most No. 1s on the Australian chart.

Madonna's career chart-toppers in Australia so far include True Blue, I'm Breathless (May 1990), The Immaculate Collection (November 1990), Erotica(October 1992), Bedtime Stories (October 1994), Something To Remember(November 1995), Ray Of Light (March 1998), Confessions On A Dance Floor(Nov. 2005), Hard Candy (May 2008) and MDNA (April 2012). 

Rebel Heart held off homegrown pop-rock quartet San Cisco's sophomore setGracetown, which debuted at No. 2 when the new chart was published on the weekend.

The legendary singer will reward her loyal Australian fans with a rare tour of these parts in support of her 13th studio album. "She has never played in Southeast Asia, and she hasn't been in Australia or New Zealand in probably 25 years," Live Nation's Global Touring division chairman Arthur Fogel recently told Billboard. "It's kind of bizarre when you think about it, that a superstar like that hasn't been to a pretty regular touring area for 25 years."

Rebel Heart, which features collaborations with Kanye West, Diplo, Avicii,Nicki Minaj, Chance The Rapper and retired boxer Mike Tyson, is facing a stiff challenge from  the soundtrack to Fox TV's Empire for the top spot on the Billboard 200. The new Billboard 200 top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, March 18.

Madonna getting 37k in UK is still a WAY bigger success than her 4090 sales in Oz. It's just there was no local competition. Kylie's KMO sold 8166 in Oz for #1 last year, and that was considered slightly underwhelming by her fans.
