Madonna’s ‘Celebration’ Tops Euro Chart

Posted by Sylar On Friday, October 02, 2009

Madonna’s “Celebration” (Warner Bros.) overtakes Muse’s “The Resistance” (Helium 3/Warner Music) to debut at the top of Billboard’s European Top 100 Albums survey. There’s a fourth week as the European Hot 100 Singles No. 1 for “Sexy Chick” (Gum/Positiva/Virgin/EMI) by David Guetta featuring Akon.

The “Celebration” retrospective is new at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Ireland and Denmark, No. 2 in Spain, Portugal and Finland, No. 3 in Switzerland, No. 4 in Austria and No. 5 in Norway. The compilation’s 77,000 first-week U.K. sales give Madonna her 11th No. 1 album there (including 1996’s “Evita” soundtrack). That draws her level with Elvis Presley with the most U.K. chart-toppers of any solo artist, only behind the Beatles’ best total for any artist of 15.

    Off-topic: Muse's The Resistance is an amazing album. Easily one of my favorites of the year. And there have been SO many good albums this year so that definitely means something.

    I'm such a bad fan, aren't I? -_-;

    But to not seem so bad... yay Madonna!!! :D
