4 Minutes added to 27 weeks spent at chart summit

Half of Madonna’s 12 previous number one singles spent a single week at number one but 4 Minutes has no intention of surrendering its title yet, and on its second week at the chart summit it moves further ahead of the chasing pack, securing sales of 49,771 copies following its release on CD.
Madonna’s one week wonders: True Blue, Who’s That Girl, Frozen, American Pie, Music and Sorry. Those that stuck around longer: Into The Groove, Papa Don’t Preach, La Isla Bonita, Like A Prayer, Vogue and Hung Up. All told, Madonna has spent 27 weeks at number one, the same as Take That. The only acts with more weeks at number one are Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Cliff Richard, Frankie Laine and Abba.

Madonna retains top spot in British singles charts

Pop diva Madonna held on to the top spot in the British singles charts released Sunday for the second week running with her record 13th number one.
Her new track, '4 Minutes', which features Justin Timberlake, is part of her latest album, 'Hard Candy', released a month ago, and was followed by Sam Sparro's 'Black & Gold' and Estelle's 'American Boy', featuring Kanye West, in second and third respectively.
The 49-year-old's 13 British chart-topping singles nearly double those of the next closest female solo artist, Kylie Minogue, who has seven.

From Puerto Rico - thanks to Elvin:
I must say that here in Puerto Rico the new song of Madonna that we hear on the radio station is 'The Beat Goes On' NOT '4 Minutes'. I don't know what happened but here the DJ's on radio present that song as the new song from Madonna. Maybe is an error maybe is a propaganda but the song is really cool and is number #1.

From USA - thanks to Frank:
Just thought you'd like to hear....the NBA has been playing Madonna's new track as the background music for all the televised games! #1 here it comes!


4 Minutes on Billboard

4 Minute holds steady at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and on other Billboard charts Madonna is doing quite well also:

#1 Billboard Hot Digital Songs
#1 Billboard Hot Digital Tracks
#1 Billboard Canadian Hot 100
#2 Billboard Pop 100
#4 Billboard Hot Dance Airplay

Despite having only about 1/4 of the radio airplay audience of Mariah's Touch My Body, 4 Minutes is outselling it's sales this week. In the US songs that sell over 200k digital units in a week is considered a huge deal and accomplishment. Madonna's radio airplay audience is #12 with enormous room for growth, so please keep requesting the track to help expand airplay audience size thus making it one of the most played songs in the coming weeks. Make no mistake 4 Minutes is performing very well in the US and is Madonna's biggest Single in the US in 8 years!

Liz Smith: 4 Minutes is firecracker hot

On April 28, Madonna's final album for Warner Records - her home base for 25 years - debuts. The first single, a duet with Justin Timberlake titled '4 Minutes,' has rocketed up the Top 40 Countdown meter faster than any song in the chart's 38-year history. It is No. 1 on iTunes. Perhaps most significantly, Ellen DeGeneres shimmies to it every day on her TV show. (Ellen now equals Oprah in shaping cultural cravings. If either of these women says, 'Buy i! Love it!' - millions do.)
So Madonna's swan song for Warner might be her biggest hit ever. The '4 Minutes' video features Madonna - relentlessly athletic, and Justin, effortlessly limber - dancing up a storm.
We've heard some snarky comments about Justin 'making music with his mommy' but in the video, there seems to be hardly a year between them. She will be 50 in August; he is 26. You'd never know that Madonna could, chronologically, be his mother, watching the pair bump and grind in '4 Minutes.' (Madonna is toned to the max; a disciplined life is not to be despised!)

'4 Minutes', the pulsating and hypnotic debut single from Madonna’s 11th studio album for Warner Bros. Records 'HARD CANDY' is off to a roaring start with explosive exposure in a wide range of mediums.
The breathtaking new video for '4 Minutes' featuring a propulsive performance by Madonna along with appearances by the song’s co-writers and co-producers Timbaland and Justin Timberlake will make its world premiere and be available for sale exclusively on iTunes for 48 hours beginning April 3rd. The video was filmed in London in February and directed by French wunderkinds, Jonas and Francois (Justice and Kanye West). The single, '4 Minutes' is currently #1 on iTunes.
The upcoming Warner Bros.-Village Roadshow Pictures action comedy 'Get Smart,' is on board to include '4 Minutes' in the film. In theatres nationwide on June 20th, 'Get Smart' stars Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway as secrent CONTROL operatives Maxwell Smart and Agent 99 on a mission to thwart a plan for world domination by the evil crime syndicate KAOS. The film also stars Dwayne Johnson as superstar CONTROL Agent 23, Alan Arkin as the Chief, Terence Stamp as notorious KAOS king pin Siegfried and James Caan as the president of the United States.
On the international front, '4 Minutes' is already Top 3 across Europe in airplay and Top 10 around the world. Already playing in heavy rotation on radio stations across the US, the single in Canada is the fastest selling song in the history of the Canadian music charts. The song can also be heard as part of Sunsilk’s multi-million dollar ad campaign.
'Hard Candy' will have a global release on April 28th and a US release on April 29th and is a brilliant up-tempo collection of 12 songs in which Madonna remains ensconced in club mode but adds an urban hip hop beat. '4 Minutes' is Madonna’s 26th Top 40 chart hit in the US. Her previous album 'Confessions On A Dance Floor' debuted at No. 1 in 30 countries and sold over 8 million copies.
Madonna, a multi-Grammy-award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, cultural icon, world renowned stage performer, video visionary, children’s book author, director and documentary film maker has sold 200 million albums in the course of her unprecedented two decade plus career and has just been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
When asked about the '4 Minute Fever Phenomenon,' Madonna commented, 'Goody goody gum drops.'

94.9 Wild - 18883339490
97.3 Alice - 14154783697

From USA - thanks to Fernando:
Fans across the USA, as you may know already, our Queen has made a super move from #68 to #3 on the Billboard HOT 100. This is HUGE, especially since the single has only been out for 2 weeks on radio and 1 week on download. We CANNOT stop here! If we continue to request, buy the single and download....she can actually hit #1. THAT WOULD BE AMAZING! This would mean Madonna will score her first #1 since Music. C'mon guys, let's make this happen! Call all your stations and support!


Madonna breaks Elvis' Billboard record

Elvis Presley will also be nudged from his standing as the artist with the most top 10s in the rock era, as Madonna surpasses him with her 37th top 10, '4 Minutes.' The track, which features Justin Timberlake, clocks a #68-#3 jump on this morning's preliminary chart. Previous to the establishment of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1958, the industry standard chart was the Best Sellers in Stores tally, where Presley scored his first 12 top 10s.
Madonna's Hot 100 jump is spurred by stupendous download sales. '4 Minutes' shifts 217,000 in its first week of wide release (it had been available as a Verizon exclusive) to enter Hot Digital Songs at #2.
