Madonna has scored her 12th Number One in the Official UK Albums Chart with 'MDNA', and breaks a UK album record held by Elvis Presley.

The Queen Of Pop has now overtaken The King as the solo artist with the most Number One albums in the UK, according to the Official Charts Company.

Madonna’s new LP has seen her collaborating with top flight dance producers including William Orbit, LMFAO and Benny Benassi. 'MDNA' beat its closest rival, David Guetta's 'Nothing But The Beat', in the chase for the top spot by a comfortable 34,000 copies.

Elsewhere, Emelie Sande climbs up one place to Number Three with 'Our Version Of Events'. Adele’s '21' is also up one place, and The Voice judge, Jessie J, climbs a massive 18 places from Number 23 to this week’s Number Five with her debut album 'Who You Are'.

In the singles chart, Chris Brown made it to the top spot and, in doing so, records his first ever UK Number One. 'Turn Up The Music', the new single taken from forthcoming fifth studio album 'Fortune', fires to the summit today by a clear margin of 24,000 copies.

Dancehall star, Sean Paul, holds firm in second place with 'She Doesn't Mind' and Nicki Minaj's 'Starships' jumps two places to Number Three. Plan B lands in the Top 10 with his new single 'Ill Manors', which comes in at Number Six.
