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

The Queen of Pop reigns again with ‘Turn Up the Radio,’ extending her mark for the most leaders in the chart’s archives. She also closes in on even bigger Billboard chart history.

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.

Here’s a breakdown of Madonna’s No. 1 sums on active, current-based U.S. charts: 43, Dance/Club Play Songs; 33, Hot Dance Singles Sales; 15, Hot Singles Sales; 12, Billboard Hot 100; 9, Radio Songs; 9, Music Video Sales; 8, Billboard 200; 7, Dance/Mix Show Airplay; 5, Adult Contemporary; 4, Internet Albums; 3, Digital Albums; 2, Dance/Electronic Albums; 2, Digital Songs; 2, Hot Digital Tracks; 1, Pop Songs; 1, Tastemaker Albums.

Chicane & Vigri – Sólarupprás (Original Mix)

2012 release from the British Electronic artist. In the past, he has been dubbed the “godfather of the Ibiza anthem,” but Chicane mastermind, Nick Bracegirdle, has come a long way since the sun drenched Balearic shores first throbbed to the archetypal chill out classic, ‘Offshore’. The expression, ‘hot off the press’ does not apply when talking about the timing of Chicane’s albums; the last 12 months has been spent crafting, caressing and encouraging the tracks into shape. The album’s emotive power is sublime, and as Nick sums it up, “a collection of life’s soundtracks.”

6 New Yelp Badges: Barfly, Carrot Top, Footloose, Meathead, Unleashed and Happy Hour Power

* BARFLY – easiest of the new ones to obtain: need 4 check-in at bars, lounges and/or pubs over two separate days – anytime of the day. Not quite sure how this differs from SOUSED (unless it’s because it requires more than just one day since SOUSED in more of a pub-crawl on one night). (2672 yelpers “unlocked” and counting)

* CARROT TOP – 3 separate check-ins at 3 separate vegetarian establishments on 3 separate days. (106 yelpers “unlocked” and counting)

* FOOTLOOSE – 3 separate check-ins at 3 separate Dance Clubs over at least 2 days. It has to be a Dance Club too. I have a check-in at the Ballroom Dance Studio where I do some dance lessons and that check-in was in between the Dance Club check-ins, but it did not count towards this badge (85 yelpers “unlocked” and counting)

* MEATHEAD – 3 separate check-ins at 3 separate Steak Houses over 3 days. However, hamburger places (ie. fast food), burger shacks, mini-burger trucks, even gourmet burger establishmentsetc. etc., do NOT apply. (179 yelpers and counting)

* UNLEASED – 3 separate check-ins on 3 separate days/nights at a Dog Park. It can be the SAME dog park all 3 nights too. I walk my two-pocket panthers after midnight (since there are usually no dogs around then) through the Glenbrook Dog Park. near my home. It has to be a Dog Park also. Not a regular park. Not a Dog Sitter or Dog-Walking service either. (63 yelpers “unlocked” and counting)

* HAPPY HOUR POWER – I was praying this had nothing to do with church meetings, and luckily I was right. It took 5 check-ins and 5 different establishments, over 4 separate days, between the hours of 5-7pm. [Maybe 8pm. And maybe if you push it, you can get it in 2 or 3 days. I don't know.] (75 yelpers “unlocked” and counting).


Sometimes you get a TWO-fer. My check-in at “Badlands” (Sacramento) counted towards BOTH “Barfly” and “Footloose”. But not towards “Happy Hour Power” since my check in at Badlands was late at night. IF, however, my check had been before 7pm, I can’t help but wonder if I would have gotten a THREE-fer with the “Badlands” check-in.
