Madonnas ‘MDNA’ sets record for largest drop in chart history

Last week Madonna used a secret weapon to push her new album all the way to number 1 on the Billboard 200. Meaning she gave it away for free to everyone who bought tickets to her tour and for some reason Billboard counted that.

She couldn't do it again this week though, and so now she's set the all-time record for the biggest second week drop in chart history. Forbes.com says...

When all the numbers are in on Tuesday night, "MDNA" will have fallen from number 1 by 88% ... from 359,000 copies in its first week to roughly 46,000 the second week.

I still don't get how getting a free Madonna CD is some kind of enticement to buying a Madonna concert ticket. That would be like catching an STD from your rapist. It's two awful things instead of just one. The only thing worse than going to a concert with the Cool Mom who thinks she can hang out with her teenage daughter is if the Cool Mom is the one actually on stage.
