Madonna breaks Elvis record

Published: 2005-11-28
Madonna has been receiving heaps of attention for her newest album Confessions on a Dacnefloor and now she's got one more reason.

After her newest single "Hung Up" hit the top ten she tied a record set by the King of Rock 'n' Roll himself by having 36 top ten hits.

Elvis had his first top ten hit in 1956 with "Heartbreak Hotel" and his last top ten sixteen years later in 1972 with "Burning Love".

It took Madge a little longer to hit her thirty sixth hit with twenty one years between her 1983 hit "Borderline" and "Hung Up".

She also holds the record for most top forty hits by a female artist with 45 top forty hits out of 51 songs that have charted.
