LONDON - Madonna secured her 11th British number one album on Sunday when her greatest hits collection "Celebration" took the top spot in its debut week.
The U.S. singer's latest release, which includes hits such as "Vogue", "Like a Virgin" and "Ray of Light", pushed "The Resistance" by British rock band Muse off the top of the chart.
Madonna is now the third most successful album artist in British chart history, behind only the Beatles (15 number ones) and Elvis Presley (11), according to The Official Charts Company, which compiles the weekly rundown.
London rapper Dizzee Rascal entered the chart at number three with his new album "Tongue 'n Cheek", while Lebanon-born singer Mika was new at four with "The Boy Who Knew Too Much".
There was no change at the top of the singles chart, with singer-songwriter Taio Cruz holding on to pole position with "Break Your Heart".
French DJ David Guetta's dance hit "Sexy Chick" was steady at number two and U.S. rapper Jay-Z "Empire State of Mind", recorded with R&B singer Alicia Keys, climbed 12 places to third.
