Madonna Notches 42nd No. 1 on Dance/Club Play Songs

The Queen of Pop materializes at No. 1 with 'Girl Gone Wild,' extending her record for the most leaders in the chart's history.

M adonna earns her record-extending 42nd No. 1 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play Songs chart, as "Girl Gone Wild" zips 4-1. (All charts will be refreshed Thursday (April 12) on Billboard.com).

The song is the second topper from Madonna's 12th studio album, "MDNA," which bowed atop the Billboard 200 last week with 359,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Just three weeks ago, the set's first single, "Give Me All Your Luvin'," featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., reached the chart's summit.

The speedy return to the survey's top spot grants Madonna her quickest span of back-to-back No. 1s. She had previously linked faster consecutive No. 1s when "Vogue" ruled just seven weeks after "Keep It Together" in 1990.

Madonna extends her lead for the most No. 1s in the Dance/Club Play Songs chart's 35-year history, pulling further away from runner-up Janet Jackson, who has 19. Beyonce follows with 18 No. 1s, trailed by Rihanna (17), Kristine W (16), Mariah Carey (16) and Whitney Houston (15).

With her latest leader, Madonna also tallies her record-padding 73rd week atop the ranking.
