Madonna equals Elvis chart record with Celebration
Madonna equalled Elvis Presley's record of 11 UK number one solo albums on Sunday when Celebration went straight to the top of the charts.
The singer knocked Muse's The Resistance from the top spot, The Official UK Charts Company said.
Only The Beatles have had more UK number one albums with a record 15.
Madonna is the most successful female solo artist of all time with the most weeks at the top of the album charts (29), the most number one singles (13) and the most chart doubles for topping the singles and album charts simultaneously (4).
Her recent Sticky and Sweet tour was also the highest grossing in history by a female artist, The Official UK Charts Company said.
Celebration brings together 36 tracks spanning Madonna's career so far and includes Revolver, a newly recorded song featuring Lil Wayne.
The album chart also saw success for pop legend Cliff Richard who had a new entry at number six with Reunited, his new album with The Shadows.
The other new entries in the top 10 were Dizzee Rascal's Tongue N' Cheek at number three, Mika's The Boy Who Knew Too Much at number four and Pearl Jam's Backspacer at number nine.
In the singles chart Taio Cruz held onto the number one position for a second week with Break Your Heart.
David Guetta featuring Akon stayed at number two with Sexy Chick, while Madonna's single Celebration fell five places from number three to number eight.
Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z featuring Alicia Keys rocketed into third spot from last week's number 15.
