Madonna scores her 71st top 40 single on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, as "Living For Love" debuts at No. 26 on the list dated March 1.

The achievement extends her own record for the most top 40 hits by a woman in U.K. chart history.

As earlier reported, "Living For Love" was commercially issued in the U.K. on the same day as she took the stage on the Brit Awards (Feb. 25). On the show, the diva took a tumble after a wardrobe malfunction sent her falling backwards down a set of steps. She recently told talk show host Jonathan Ross that it was a "nightmare" and she suffered a "little bit of whiplash."

The song's arrival on the U.K. chart was powered by only three full days of sales, as the tracking week ends at midnight on Saturday.

Madonna last visited the top 40 with 2012's "Give Me All Your Luvin," featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. Madonna's first top 40 hit was "Holiday," in 1984.

Madonna also returns to the top 40 of the Official U.K. Albums Chart with her Celebration greatest hits album, re-entering at No. 38.
