TEL AVIV, ISRAEL - MAY 18: Madonna, performs live on stage after the 64th annual Eurovision Song Contest held at Tel Aviv Fairgrounds on May 18, 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Madonna released her fourteenth studio album, Madame X, last Friday, and it’s shaping up to be her ninth album to reach number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.

According to Hits Daily Double, Madame X is estimated to move between 80-100K units, with 75-95K of that number accounting for physical albums sales.

Of course, Madonna has a lengthy history of topping the charts, particularly the Billboard 100 on which she has had 57 singles over the course of her career. Twelve of those singles went to number one, but there are some surprising tracks that somehow didn’t top the chart. Here are eight Madonna singles that didn’t hit number one.


“Holiday”

The third single from Madonna, “Holiday” was Madonna’s first single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 and would top out at number 16 in January 1984.
