“Bitch I’m Madonna” extends the Queen’s record for most No. 1s on a single chart
From an article by Keith Caulfield, Billboard.com:
Madonna’s back at No. 1 on Dance Club Songs, as Bitch I’m Madonna rises 2-1 on the chart dated Aug. 15.
It’s her 46th No. 1 on this chart, and extends her own record for the most No. 1s on a singular Billboard chart. Madonna broke the record in May, when she surpassed George Strait’s 44 leaders on the Hot Country Songs chart.
The new Aug. 15-dated Dance Club Songs chart – which measures reports submitted by a national sample of club DJs – will post to Billboard’s websites on Aug. 4.
Bitch I’m Madonna, featuring Nicki Minaj, is the third single from Madonna’s Rebel Heart album. The set debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking her 21st top 10 effort.
For Minaj, the song is her fifth No. 1 and her second one with the Queen of Pop, following MDNA’s Give Me All Your Luvin’.
Check out Billboard.com for an updated look at Madonna’s 46 Dance Club Songs No. 1s, beginning with the double-sided single “Holiday”/”Lucky Star,” which reached the top the week of Sept. 24, 1983. You’ll notice that one of her No. 1s is an entire album: You Can Dance (1988), a collection of mostly remixes of previously-released songs (and one new cut, “Spotlight”). Prior to Feb. 23, 1991, the chart wasn’t always song-specific and full albums were, at some points, allowed to chart.
