Madonna’s latest album, MDNA has topped the UK album charts, making her the most successful solo artist ever in UK album chart history.

Madonna’s latest album is the 12th chart-topper of her career, taking her ahead of Elvis Presley’s 11 number ones.

The 53-year-old’s single, Give Me All Your Luvin, had debuted at only 37 in February.

Meanwhile, New York tenor Noah Stewart’s debut album, Noah, was the second highest new entry at 14.

He also became the first black artist to top the UK classical album chart.

Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot described Stewart’s achievement as “truly groundbreaking.”

“Noah is sure to become a familiar name for years to come following this landmark breakthrough,” the BBC quoted Talbot as saying.

Last week’s number one album, Paul Weller’s Sonic Kicks, dropped to 10th spot.

In the Official Singles Chart, Chris Brown’s Turn Up the Music went straight to number one, making it the most successful single of his UK career.
