Madonna earns her 45th No. 1 on the Dance Club Songs chart with "Ghosttown," giving her the most chart-toppers on a single Billboard chart. "Thanks to all my fans on and off the dancefloor," she tells Billboard. "I'll [always] be your partner."


With 45 Dance No. 1s, Madonna surpasses George Strait's 44 on Hot Country Songs for the most on any Billboard tally. Her first Dance Club Songs leader, the double-sided "Holiday"/"Lucky Star," topped the list on Sept. 24, 1983.
