Madonna Returns to Hot 100 With 'Bitch I'm Madonna'

The song, featuring Nicki Minaj, bows at No. 84, bringing Madonna back to the chart for the first time since 2012. Her Madgesty is back on the Billboard Hot 100. Madonna's playfully self-celebratory 'Bitch I'm Madonna,' featuring Nicki Minaj, debuts on the Hot 100 (dated July 4) at No. 84, powered most heavily by its 1,454 percent gain to 2.6 million U.S. streams in the week ending June 21, according to Nielsen Music. The song's official video premiered June 17 (first exclusively on Tidal for 24 hours) and includes cameos by Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Chris Rock, Kanye West and other stars.

The third single from Madonna's album Rebel Heart becomes the set's first Hot 100 hit, preventing the LP from becoming her first studio album not to generate a Hot 100 entry. Lead single 'Living for Love' and follow-up 'Ghosttown' both fell shy of the list. Still, both songs crowned the Dance Club Songs chart, with the latter becoming her 45th No. 1 on the survey and rewriting the record for the most leaders an artist has notched on any Billboard ranking. ('Bitch' debuts at No. 26 on Dance Club Songs this week.)

'Bitch' arrives as Madonna's 57th Hot 100 hit and first since 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' (also featuring Minaj, as well as M.I.A.) became her record-extending 38th top 10 in 2012. The Beatles follow with 34 Hot 100 top 10s.

i don't understand. the video has over 31 million views and it has fallen down the chart? It's first week views were 15 million and it hits the hot 100 chart at 84 but the views are double this week and it falls to 95?


2nd week. I think it's number 95. She's done her best promoting the album, and there are lots of great tracks. Her release schedule seems to be on point. She has her 58th top 100. The strange thing about this is that Madonna had to release B-sides for like 2 decade. Today, an artist can release a B-side and get credit for it charting. The rules are unfair. Madonna would have more than 100 top 100 hits under these new rules. Just making an observation.


How very sad that we are now reduced to "celebrating" when Madonna manages to make the singles chart at all :-( "Debut at Number 84"? Long gone are the days when the likes of "Hung Up" and "Sorry" debuted at NUMBER 1 in the UK. I still can't believe that "Ghosttown" tanked - it is one of M's best songs in a decade, imho.


I hope this song climbs higher. It keeps me movin....
