The Hot 100 may not be living for Madonna‘s latest single “Living For Love,” but as her recent ascension to #1 on the Dance charts indicates, the clubs are eating it up.
No stranger to this particular perch, the Queen of Pop currently reigns as the chart’s champion with a whopping 44 leading titles to her name. The feat not only extends her lead afront pop diva runner-ups Janet Jackson, Rihanna, and Beyonce, but also lands in her Billboard history books for an even greater achievement.
See what we mean below:
“Madonna makes Billboard chart history, as she earns her 44th No. 1 on Dance Club Songs, where “Living for Love” lifts 2-1. (The ranking, dated March 7, will refresh on Billboard.com on Thursday, Feb. 26). With the coronation, Madonna equals George Strait, who’s logged 44 No. 1s on Hot Country Songs, for the most leaders ever by an act on a singular Billboard chart.
In addition to having more top 10 singles on the Hot 100 than any other artist in history, Madonna’s ‘Living For Love’ achievement comes just as the song is finally making moves on the ‘Pop Songs’ chart spurred by radio spins and increase in downloads.
The song’s parent album, ‘Rebel Heart,’ marches on to record shelves on March 10th.
