She logged a total of five top 10s on the Billboard 200 in the 1980s (‘Madonna’, ‘Like a Virgin’, ‘True Blue’, the ‘Who’s That Girl’ soundtrack and ‘Like a Prayer’).

Seven in the a90s (‘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’).

In the ’10s she had four (‘Sticky & Sweet Tour’, ‘MDNA’, ‘Rebel Heart’ and ‘Madame X’).

Speaking of her new album, Madonna said: “I named this record ‘Finally Enough Love’ because at the end of the day, love is what makes the world go round.”

She told Harper’s Bazaar: “It also is representative of one of my biggest loves in life, which is dance. I love to dance, and I love to inspire people to dance, so with 50 number one dance hits, that is a lot of love to share.”
