Madonna's 'Madame X' on track to debut atop Billboard 200

All indicators point to Madonna debuting atop the Billboard 200 with Madame X, her 14th studio album, marking her first number one since 2012's MDNA and ninth overall. HITS Daily Double predicts sales of 90-100k units, with 85-95k in pure sales.

Madonna's last album, 2015's Rebel Heart, debuted at number two with sales of 121k units (116k pure sales). As is often the case in the current landscape, Madame X is benefiting from album bundles and direct-to-consumer sales.
