Madonna Tops Elvis

Girl gone wild and on top. Of Elvis Presley! At least in the UK.
 Billboard reports:

Madonna landed her 12th U.K. No. 1 album on Sunday (April 1) with "MDNA" to overtake Elvis Presley as the solo artist with the most chart-topping albums in the market....

Madonna's span of album bestsellers began in September 1985, when "Like A Virgin" climbed to the summit, ten months after it first charted. She achieved two further No. 1 albums in the 1980s, three in the 1990s (including the "Evita" soundtrack, which also featured other artists), and five in the 2000s. She now pulls clear of Presley's collection of 11 titles. "MDNA" sold 56,000 copies last week, according to the Official Charts Company.

From the new set, "Masterpiece" also hit the singles chart at No. 68 and opening single "Give Me All Your Luvin'," featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., reappeared on the top 75 at No. 71. Madonna's 2009 compilation "Celebration" dipped 35-37 and Rhino/Warner Music's "The Complete Studio Albums 1983-2008" charted at No. 70.

Viva La Madonna!
