Not surprisingly, Glee‘s 7-track EP CD of their “The Power of Madonna” episode entered the Billboard Hot 200 chart at #1, selling 98,000 copies! Not only that, ALL SEVEN songs from the CD made it on to the Digital Single Sales chart, with “Like A Prayer” ranking the highest, at #10!
And altho that’s a feat in itself, the CD OUTSOLD the ACTUAL Madonna…her newest CD, “The Stick & Sweet Tour” only sold a total of 41,000 in its first 3 weeks.
In all fairness, Madonna’s CD IS a compilation CD…so there aren’t really NEW hits on there…while Glee‘s CD is obviously NEW. But still…outselling the original artist is pretty AWESOME! Go Glee!
