Madonna remains in second place among women with the most No. 1 albums. She now needs only one more No. 1 to tie Barbra Streisand, the leader among women with nine chart-toppers.
'MDNA' sold 359,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan, and is Madonna's fifth straight studio album to debut at No. 1. It follows 2008's 'Hard Candy,' which moved 280,000 in its first week. 'MDNA's' opener is her best sales week since 2000's 'Music' shifted 420,000 when it debuted at No. 1.
