Madonna’s new compilation Celebration leaps straight to number one in the Official Album Chart and brings her level with Elvis Presley’s record of eleven UK number one albums, the Official Charts Company reveals today.
No other solo artist can match this achievement. Only The Beatles, with a total of fifteen, have had more number one albums in chart history.
This feat marks yet another record for Madonna, the most successful female solo artist of all time. She has also:
- Spent more weeks (29) at number one of the Official UK Album Chart than any other female solo artist.
- Had more UK number one singles (13) than any other female solo artist.
- Achieved the chart double (simultaneous number one album and single) more times (4) than any other female solo artist.
- Completed the highest grossing tour in history (her recent Sticky & Sweet tour) for a female artist.
Celebration brings together 36 tracks spanning Madonna’s entire career so far and includes a newly recorded song Revolver featuring Lil Wayne.
Celebration The Video Collection DVD with 47 tracks is released tomorrow, Monday 28th September 2009.

Madonna is just like....MADONNA....so I don't think that comparison means something...in fact, I would believe that her goals never were and never will be in get or take someone else's records....I like to believe that is about "say what you like and do what you feel"... In my opinion
Madonna ~ seems like each generation gets the one artist people just canot get enough of..Madonna was one who had to break boundries and barriers...Just like elvis on a different level..The sucess later is much sweeter and the appreciation from fans is pure bliss for her I believe...We love you madonna ! Thank you for the Music and dedication to your fans .
brilliant news....cant wait for the next album...X
I can't wait till she tops Elvis. Me, I'm both a huge Madonna and Beatles fan and I think they're the two greatest things that happened to music. To me, she's a female version of Paul McCartney( a more beautiful version too, since I'm straight). I think she's just as talented as McCartney as well. This news is as great to me as the Beatles selling 2.25 million albums in 5 days. She's a goddess and deserves to be happy.Madonna, thanks for being so great.
Not for nothing is the queen of pop. And I know that in a few years more, she will reach and overcome to the beatles and all the artist of the world because she's Madonna!
Congratulations Madonna,you really deserve the number one place in entertainment and music business!
Congratulations to the Queen of Pop. You once said you wanted to rule the world - you did it, yeah! Keep up the hard work, keep writing beautiful songs that make us dance. Love from France. Nora.
