Her new album MDNA became her 10th album that reached No.1 in Australia yesterday.
She is now third in the list of artists with the most No.1 albums in Australia.
The Beatles are first with 14 chart toppers, then U2 with 11, Madonna on 10, Jimmy Barnes with nine while John Farnham and Bon Jovi each have eight No.1 albums.
MDNA also topped the charts in Britain, Ireland, Sweden, Finland and Taiwan.
The Australian album sales follow the surprisingly lukewarm response to the first two singles Give Me All Your Luvin (which peaked at No.25) and Girl Gone Wild, which debuted at No.93 this week.
The superstar will tour Australia early next year.
