Madonna made a major achievement today when she matched Elvis Presley's U.K. record for a solo act as her "Celebration" retrospective (Warner Bros.).
Madonna and Presley, with 11 No. 1s each in the U.K., are now joint second only to the Beatles, who have 15 to their name. According to U.K. Chart Company data, Madonna has also spent more weeks at No. 1 in the market, than any other female solo artist.
"Celebration" pushed Muse's No. 1 of last week, "The Resistance" (Helium 3/Warner Bros.), down into runner-up spot, while Dizzee Rascal's "Tongue N' Cheek" (Dirtee Stank) debuted at No. 3. The U.K. rapper also had a new entry on the chart last night (Sunday) at No. 11 on the singles chart with "Dirtee Cash."
