While it was the best-selling album of the week—ranking number one on Billboard's Top Album Sales chart with pure album sales of 116,000 copies (96% of overall units), it fell behind the soundtrack when it came to streaming and track equivalent album units, with just over 1,000 and 4,000 units respectively.

The album became Madonna's 21st top-ten album, but it her first studio release not to debut atop the chart since 1998's "Ray of Light."

The album's concert tour bundle amounted to less than 10,000 copies compared to the 180,000 copies sold for her previous album, "MDNA."

The release also saw Madonna debut at number seven on the Billboard Artist 100 chart, moving up by 2,919% in overall Artist 100 points and gaining 31% in social media activity.

Billboard reported sales dropped by 78% to 26,000 units, a reflection of the high pre-orders during the first week.

The album was present for a total of 11 weeks on the chart, and ranked at number 151 on the Billboard 200 year end chart for 2015.

As of December 2016, "Rebel Heart" has sold 238,000 copies in the US according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album ended 2015 as the 39th best-selling album of the year with sales of 900,000 copies. By March 2016, it sold an estimated one million copies worldwide.
