“Crave” moves up in the Billboard Charts this week
More great news for Madame X in the Billboard charts for the week of 29 June, 2019.
Following Medellín‘s No. 1 in Dance Club Songs and the album entering at the top of the Billboard 200 chart, Crave feat. Swae Lee moves up a notch its fourth week on Adult Contemporary.
This means that Crave, now at No. 14, becomes Madonna’s highest peak in the chart since 1999, now in a tie with The Power of Good-bye, that peaked at No.14 on 2 January that year.
Two weeks ago, when it moved up to No. 15, Crave surpassed Ghosttown, her prior recent peak in the chart (No. 18), and Papa Don’t Preach (No. 16), ranking at the same place of You Must Love Me.
Madonna previously topped the Adult Contemporary chart 5 times (Take a Bow, I’ll Remember, Cherish, Live to Tell, La Isla Bonita), was No. 2 twice (Secret, Crazy for You), and was once at No. 3 (Like a Prayer) and No. 4 (This Used to be My Playground).
You’ll See, Angel, True Blue and Who’s That Girl all peaked at No. 5, Rain at No. 7, Frozen at No. 8, Express Yourself and Open Your Heart at No. 12.
Crave also moves up to No. 37 in its second week on Adult Pop Songs, the Billboard chart the most popular adult top 40 as based on radio airplay detections measured by Nielsen.
In more chart news, Madonna re-enters the Billboard Artist 100 at No. 1, becoming the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time since the chart’s launch in 2014. The Artist 100 is measured on key metrics of music consumption, including album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction, providing a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
Madonna is the fourth solo female artist to lead the Artist 100 in 2019, following Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish and P!nk. She previously reached No. 7 on the chart when Rebel Heart was released in 2015.
