Madonna and her Guinness World Records!
The ninth annual Record Store Day (RSD) takes place on Saturday 16 April in celebration of independent record stores around the world. This year’s RSD we will see exclusive releases from massive music artists including Metallica, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Madonna. To celebrate Record Store Day and special album releases from these stars, Guinness World Records shares their records they love most. Here’s some Madonna’s records:
Madonna (USA, b. Madonna Ciccone) is the Best-selling female recording artist, having sold more than 300 million albums in her career since debuting with her self-titled release in 1983.
As of October 2013, Madonna had sold an estimated 305,600,000 albums. Her best-sellers are The Immaculate Collection (1990, 30 million copies sold) and True Blue (1986, 25 million copies sold).
Although precise sales figures are difficult to obtain and are often disputed, it is acknowledged that only The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson have conclusively sold more albums worldwide than Madonna.
In honour of Record Store Day she is releasing Like A Virgin & Other Big Hits! as a 12″ Coloured Vinyl.
She is such a renowned popstar that she has even inspired a Guinness World Records attempt for the Largest gathering of people dressed as Madonna. The 2014 Fool’s Paradise Drag Party (USA) set the record with an incredible 440 people in Fire Island Pines, New York, USA, in August 2014.
