The Queen of Pop just shattered an American record on the Billboard 200 ranking. Madonna is now the first woman in history to chart a top 10 album in the United States in five consecutive decades.
The pop icon’s new remix album, Finally Enough Love, debuted at No. 8 on the Sept. 3-dated Billboard chart landing her this new accolade.
According to Billboard, nine other artists have achieved this feat, including Paul McCartney, Prince, and Bruce Springsteen, but Madonna is the first woman to do so.
Madonna scored five Top 10 albums in the 1980s (Madonna, Like a Virgin, True Blue, the Who’s That Girl soundtrack, and Like a Prayer), seven in the ‘90s (I’m Breathless: Music From and Inspired by the Film Dick Tracy, The Immaculate Collection, Erotica, Bedtime Stories, Something to Remember, the Evita soundtrack and Ray of Light), six in the 2000s (Music, GHV2: Greatest Hits Volume 2, American Life, Confessions on a Dance Floor, Hard Candy and Celebration) and four in the ‘10s (Sticky & Sweet Tour, MDNA, Rebel Heart and Madame X).
