Madonna Makes History With 45th No. 1

The Queen of Pop is now unequaled chart royalty. Madonna makes momentous Billboard chart history, as she now has the most No. 1s ever, 45, by an act on a singular Billboard chart.

She earns her 45th No. 1 on Dance Club Songs, where "Ghosttown" lifts 3-1.

Madonna performs ghosttown during the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards(The chart, dated May 30, will refresh on Thursday, May 21.)

With the coronation, Madonna passes another icon, George Strait, who's logged 44 No. 1s on Hot Country Songs.

"Thanks to all my fans on and off the dancefloor," Madonna said in an exclusive statement to Billboard. "I'll (always) be your partner."

With her 45th leader on Dance Club Songs, which measures reports submitted by a national sample of club DJs, Madonna pulls further ahead of runners up Beyonce and Rihanna. 

In fact, Madonna has tallied more No. 1's as they have combined: 22 each. 

(The chart launched as a national survey in the Billboard issue dated Aug. 28, 1976.)
