Celebration Becomes Madonna's 40th No. 1 Hit

Madonna’s still got it! Her latest single Celebration has reached the top of the charts, making it the 40th single of hers at No. 1.

She is in the lead for most No. 1s in the chart's history, far ahead of runner-up Janet Jackson, who has 18. Madonna first appeared on the top of the charts with "Everybody" in 1982. She’s gone on to have a No. 1 almost every year since then!

The third time was the charm for Madonna, as the double-sided "Holiday/Lucky Star" marked her first No. 1 stay beginning Sept. 24, 1983.
