Madonna Notches 43rd No. 1 on Dance/Club Play Songs

Madonna earns her record-extending 43rd No. 1 on Billboard's Dance/Club Play Songs chart, as 'Turn Up the Radio' lifts 2-1. (The ranking will refresh on Thursday, Aug. 30.)
'Radio' is Madonna's third Dance/Club Play Songs No. 1 from 'MDNA,' which bowed atop the Billboard 200 the week of April 14. 'Give Me All Your Luvin',' featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., led the week of March 31, while 'Girl Gone Wild' reached No. 1 just three weeks later.
'Radio' is headed for radio, too: Interscope Records begins seeking airplay for the song at mainstream top 40 stations on Sept. 25.
With her 43rd leading title on Dance/Club Play Songs, Madonna pulls further away from runner-up Janet Jackson, who has 19. Beyonce and Rihanna follow with 18 No. 1s each, trailed by Kristine W (16) and Mariah Carey (15).
Looking forward, with one more No. 1 on Dance/Club Play Songs, the Material Girl would claim even more historic honors.
Upon her latest coronation, Madonna is now one No. 1 away from tying George Strait's record for the most toppers on any single Billboard chart. The King of Country has sat at the Country Songs chart's throne with 44 titles between 1981 and 2009. With one more No. 1 on Dance/Club Play Songs, the Queen of Pop would tie Strait for unmatched Billboard chart royalty.
Given her multi-format appeal, as opposed to Strait's status as a country-exclusive act (and an unparalleled one, at that), Madonna leads not only Strait but also all artists for the most No. 1s on all Billboard charts combined. With 'Radio' ruling Dance/Club Play Songs, Madonna logs her record-extending 156th leader on an active, current-based domestic Billboard survey.

I agree with you all. Also,Guy Osery has to go! However, Madonna is so smart and in the past she has always kept a firm eye over her career and her employees- what's happened to her?? MDNA era appears so half-hearted on all accounts.


Whilst I agree totally with Mark on the one hand, is that not also saying that Madonna is no longer in control of her career? I fail to believe that - this is the woman who, yeasr ago, had every cheque faxed to her for her approval before it was issued!

I really cannot believe that M would allow her career to be so mishandled; equally, I cannot come up with any reason for why everything from the promotion of the tour to the promotion of the album has been so shamboilc :-s


Totally agree with Joe and Mark!!! Yes, it's insane!!!


@ David H., I totally feel and agree with you!! :D


Why are they only seeking airplay the 25th of SEPTEMBER?
It's a brilliant song!
A lot of issues with the success of this album and the singles is down to Interscope and management


Live Nation sucks. And Guy Oseary too. They are destroying Madonna's recording career. All they do is tour tour tour and releasing digital singles to download. Where are the CD singles? where are the promotional pictures, the interviews in TV channels, The Video Awards Shows performances, SNL, Rolling Stone Magazine cover, etcetera? And please no decent album can have less than 4 videos released before the world tour starts. This album barely had any promotion. It's insane!

There's only one QUEEN.. and that's:

This makes me so happy!! I truly believe that MDNA in 10 years will be critically viewed more positively just like American Life is now... I never bought that album until 2 years ago and it has some really great songs on it!! American radio is so lame now...

why are they not playing TUTR on pop radio??!!?? it's a really good song...
