UK Chart Roundup: Madonna's "Girl Gone Wild" Is #1 While 'MDNA' Album Flops

Madonna's latest single "Girl Gone Wild" achieves far greater success on the UK chart than previous single "Give Me All Your Luvin'" did, as it becomes the Material Broad's first #1 single since "4 Minutes". It also marks Ye Olde Vampyre's first Top 10 hit in the country since "Celebration" reached #3 in 2009.

Meanwhile, despite topping the album charts in nearly a dozen countries so far, Madonna's 12th studio LP MDNA has limped into the UK chart at a lowly #27. Quite a contrast from Hard Candy, which somehow landed at the undeserving position of #1 back in 2008. Perhaps it's time for Madge to finally slither back into the coffin and go down for the Fynal Nap?

Oh, just kidding. April Fool's Day! MDNA is #1 in the UK, giving Her Tradgesty a 12th chart-topping album — a feat that now puts her ahead of Elvis Presley as the solo artist with the most #1s.

And as for "Girl Gone Wild" — total flopsville! Lady beater Chris Brown's generic shit track "Turn up The Music" is the #1 single.


The UK Top 10:

1. "Turn Up The Music" - Chris Brown *new* *1 week*
2. "She Doesn't Mind" - Sean Paul
3. "Starships" - Nicki Minaj
4. "Part Of Me" - Katy Perry
5. "Somebody That I Used To Know" - Gotye feat. Kimbra
6. "Ill Manors" - Plan B *new*
7. "Wild Ones" - Flo Rida feat. Sia
8. "Titanium" - David Guetta feat. Sia
9. "Last Time" - Labrinth
10. "Next To Me" - Emeli Sande
