Just a week ago Madonna's "MDNA" album debuted at #1 with an impressive sale of 359,000 copies. But this week she is only expected to sell 46,000, that's a 88 percent sales drop! This would make it the biggest second-week sales drop in chart history!
And to make matters worse, critics suggest her album sales were inflated due to a smart promotional move. Madonna's tour went on sale the same week. The tickets were packaged with the CD, and according to Forbes contributor Roger Freidman, most of the albums sold were part of these packages.
