SALES: MADONNA’S “BITCH I’M MADONNA” MOVED 9K DURING “TONIGHT SHOW” WEEK

Performed by Madonna on “The Tonight Show,” “Bitch I’m Madonna” posted a weekly sales figure of 9,000.

Madonna’s extensive involvement in last Thursday’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” included an ambitious (especially by talk show standards) rendition of her “Bitch I’m Madonna.”

In conjunction with that exposure, the song, which features Nicki Minaj, enjoyed a week-over-week sales lift.

While Nielsen Music says the song’s sales total for the April 6-12 tracking week was a modest ~9,000, the gain over the previous week’s mark was significant. Weekly sales for “Bitch” rose by 748%.

Interesting trivia: Following a high-profile, Taylor Swift-aided performance at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Madonna’s “Ghosttown” moved the same 9,000 (8,645 unrounded) during the subsequent tracking week (March 30-April 5).

The associated week-over-week gain was a decidedly more modest 90%.

Jamie Foxx: Madonna loves my little girl

Madonna thinks Jamie Foxx’s daughter has “good taste” after the youngster praised her Grammys performance.

In February, Annalise was Jamie’s special guest to the annual music ceremony in Los Angeles, where she mingled with A-list stars including Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Jay Z.

But it was pop legend Madonna the little girl was most excited about seeing face to face.

“What’s crazy about this is, is that she wanted to meet Madonna more than anybody that night. Because she saw the performance and she said, ‘Dad, I gotta meet Madonna because I love her performance,’ and I said, ‘She’s right up there,'” Jamie recalled to Jimmy Kimmel. “So she goes up to Madonna and says, ‘I think your performance was the best,’ and she [Madonna] says, ‘Why do you like it?’ ‘Because you guys had the horns, so I think you were the best.’ And you know what Madonna said? ‘Good taste.'”

The 56-year-old singer performed her track Living For Love, with scantily clad male backing dancers wearing sparkling silver masks and black horns on their heads.

Annalise has a photo gallery to treasure forever following that evening, and in each snap she pulled the same pose, where her arms are crossed and fingers pointed out.

“She’s six… My daughter trademarked it, that’s her thing. She’s been doing it since she was like two and a half, three. She just came out the womb like, ‘I’m here!'” he screeched, pulling the pose.

Jamie also touched upon his career as a musician and actor. He always dreamt of getting into music, but “just fell into the movies and just fell into winning an Oscar” he joked, referring to his best actor Academy Award for Ray.

Diplo: Bitch, We Are All Madonna

Madonna is moving swiftly through her “Rebel Heart” tracklist, releasing “Living for Love” and “Ghosttown” videos and performing “Joan of Arc,” “Devil Pray” and, most recently, “Bitch I’m Madonna.” She debuted the latter on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” last week, during which Diplo joined her for a rowdy performance that found Madonna and her dancers prancing through the entire studio.

“Bitch I’m Madonna,” which Diplo produced alongside English electronic producer Sophie, is among the six songs Madonna rushed to release after “Rebel Heart” leaked online in December. When The Huffington Post sat down with her last month, we asked Madonna to recount an instance where she used the expression “bitch, I’m Madonna” — but the singer insisted the thought hadn’t entered her mind until Diplo introduced it to her. The song’s title might sound like a puffed-up self-reference, but Diplo told us this week, while promoting Major Lazer’s new self-titled animated series, that the expression isn’t unique to Madonna. In other words, anyone who maintains his or her cool in the face of boundless criticism is, in effect, a Madonna.

Diplo couldn’t recall the exact origins of the idea of “being Madonna,” but he knows he heard it in a rap song, perhaps by Lil B, whose “Pretty Boy Anthem” includes the lyrics “I look like Madonna / Bitch, I’m a farmer.” He took the idea to Madge herself, insisting they recruit Nicki Minaj, who collaborated on Madonna’s “Give Me All Your Luvin'” and has long been vocal about idolizing the 56-year-old singer. Diplo said the song addresses naysayers who slam Madonna because she’s been in the business for so long — just like those who used her age as ridicule for making out with Drakeduring his recent Coachella set, a moment Diplo praised as “sick.”

“We made this record about, ‘Fuck it, bitch, we’re all Madonna,'” he said, which clarifies why the “Tonight Show” performance featured her son Rocco, a random guy dressed as a police officer and even Fallon himself saying the words “bitch, I’m Madonna.” That means it can be your catchphrase, too.

But there’s another twist: Because Madonna hurried to master the demos of the six “Rebel Heart” tracks she released to combat the leaks, the album version of the song isn’t Diplo’s final mix. He said he was “kind of done” with the track as we know it, so he’s since posted his intended cut on SoundCloud.

In addition to securing his spot in Madonna’s coterie, 2015 is a big year for Diplo. Major Lazer’s third album, “Peace is the Mission,” will be out June 1, boasting atracklist that features Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Pusha T and 2 Chainz. And on Thursday, FXX’s Animation Domination High-Def series “Major Lazer” will premiere after nearly five years of development. “Lost” star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje voices the titular Jamaican superhero, with support from J.K. Simmons, Aziz Ansari, Riff Raff, Andy Samberg, Charli XCX and Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig.
