Madonna heading for 71st Top 40 U.K. single

Living For Love is top 40 bound on the Official U.K. Singles Chart.

Following her show-closing performance on the Brit Awards (Feb. 25), Madonna is set to debut in the top 40 of the Official U.K. Singles Chart on Sunday (March 1) with Living For Love. The Official Charts Company reported that it would mark the diva's 71st top 40 hit. It would also extend her record as the woman with the most top 40 singles in U.K. chart history.

Living For Love was commercially released the same day as she took the stage on the Brit Awards. On the show, the diva took a nasty tumble after a wardrobe malfunction sent her flying backwards down a set of steps. She recently told talk show host Jonathan Ross that it was a "nightmare" and she suffered a "little bit of whiplash."

As the song was released on Feb. 25, it will debut on the Official U.K. Singles Chart with only three full days of sales (the tracking week ends at midnight on Saturday each week). Living For Love is the lead single from Madonna's 13th studio album, Rebel Heart, due out March 9 in the U.K. and March 10 in the U.S.

The Official Charts Company said on Feb. 27 that Living For Love is about 1,000 downloads away from the top 20, and nearly 11,000 copies separates the single from the top 10.

Madonna's last U.K. top 40 single came with 2012's Give Me All Your Luvin', featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., which peaked at No. 37. Madonna's most recent top 10 single was also her last top 20: Celebration in 2009.

Madonna's first U.K. top 40 hit came almost exactly 31 years ago, on the chart dated Jan. 15, 1984, when Holiday climbed 53-40 in its second week on the chart.

Madonna valt achterwaarts van trap tijdens Brit Awards gala

Madonna is van een trap gevallen bij een optreden op de Brit Awards. De popster viel achterwaarts drie treden naar beneden toen een danser aan haar cape trok en kwam hard terecht op haar rug. Ze krabbelde op en maakte haar liedje 'gewoon' af.

Madonna's vertolking van Living For Love was de afsluiting van het prijzengala in Londen. Ze kwam op met een grote zwarte cape, waarvan het de bedoeling was dat een danser die zou wegtrekken om haar outfit te onthullen. Maar dat ging mis. De band om haar nek zat te strak vast en Madonna maakte een flinke smak.

De 56-jarige popster reageerde achteraf luchtig op het incident. Ze twitterde dat het de schuld was van modeontwerper Armani. "Niets kan me stoppen en liefde richtte me weer op", zei ze met een verwijzing naar de tekst van Living For Love.

Madonna shoots up UK iTunes chart with 'Living For Love'

Madonna has shot up to number two on the UK iTunes chart with her new single.

The star's latest release Living For Love was made available in the UK earlier today (February 25), and has quickly scaled the iTunes sales chart.

It is only currently behind Noel Gallagher's promotional track Lock All The Doors, which has been released to promote his new album Chasing Yesterday.

Living For Loves high sales have been achieved despite Radio 1 refusing to playlist the track as they deemed it irrelevant for their younger demographic - a decision which was protested by Madonna's fans.

The station said that it makes its playlist decisions "on musical merit and... relevance to our young audience on a case-by-case basis".

Living For Love has been released in the UK today ahead of Madonna's performance at the Brit Awards this evening.

The star will take to the stage at London's O2 arena for the ceremony, which will be broadcast live on ITV from 8pm.

Madonna's 13th studio album Rebel Heart - which also features new tracks Bitch I'm Madonna, Ghosttown and Iconic - will follow on March 9.

Madonna, Rebel Heart, review: 'she’s in the game again'

Rebel Heart pairs classic songwriting and contemporary adventure in Madonna's least desperate album in years, says Neil McCormick.

“Who do you think you are?” demands a screeching voice on the self-explanatorily titled B*tch I’m Madonna. If anyone in pop has earned the right to assert herself so rudely it is surely Madonna Louise Ciccone, an iconic A-List superstar for over 30 years. It helps that the track in question fizzes with bright energy, a handclapping rave anthem powered by a fantastically wonky synth line that sounds like a vintage arcade game played on an electronic kazoo, and topped off with a snappy Nicki Minaj rap. Madonna delivers the melody like a playground nursery rhyme, chanting about bad behaviour in a butter-wouldn’t-melt sing-song voice.

It could almost be a riposte to the BBC Radio One playlist committee, who have apparently decided the 56-year-old Madonna is no longer relevant to their demographic, relegating her current single, Living For Love, to the middle-aged ravers of Radio Two. It is hard to age gracefully in the competitive field of chart pop. Rock offers different models for the older star: dedicated muso, serious singer-songwriter, nostalgic purist. Pop demands the energy of youth, eternal engagement with the subject matters of sex and courting and a wide-eyed fascination with novelty: new sounds, new styles, new effects. Madonna has been such a trend setter over the decades it has been dispiriting to see her struggling to keep up, like an ageing hipster misusing contemporary slang. Her last two albums were over-pushy, over-sexed and overly reliant on importing chart styles from hot production teams. Rebel Heart is much, much better and the key to the change seems to be Madonna herself. For the first time in years, she doesn’t sound desperate. Indeed, she sounds like she might be having fun.

It is slightly surprising under the circumstances. Her 13th album has been aggressively targeted by hackers and beset by a series of leaks, with mixes and demos popping up all over the internet, leading Madonna to complain, somewhat histrionically, of “artistic rape.” What early versions revealed were numerous collaborators reworking and reshaping every track, including such adventurous hit-makers as Kanye West, Avicii and Diplo. There is, nonetheless, a quality of coherence to the finished album and it really does centre on the star. The tone switches dramatically between dynamic contemporary electro groove adventures, singalong pop and lush synthetic ballads, while veering emotionally between introspective vulnerability and strident defiance. Yet every track adheres to robust, classic songwriting principles, a kind of melodious elegance of structure gleaming through no matter how inventively deconstructed the arrangement. And Madonna sounds relaxed and confident, singing with the sweetness and freshness of her youth, yet with much greater technical accomplishment.

If we can overlook ludicrous techno folk song Devil Pray, in which Madonna informs us that drugs are bad, she has (mostly) checked her tendency to hectoring self-justification and holier-than-thou lecturing. Dance pop tracks like Illuminati and Iconic reflect a contemporary trend for fast, furious and funny mash ups of conflicting ideas, constantly teetering on the edge of collapse but pulling out another beat or hook to keep things moving. Body Shop has a bubblegum lightness that harks back to True Blue, the epic synths of Wash All Over Me recall Ray Of Light’s rich depths, while oral sex slow burner Holy Water manages to be sacrilegious and ear-burningly naughty. She may be chasing the pop zeitgeist rather than setting it these days but at least Madonna sounds like she’s in the game again.

Rebel Heart is out March 9 on Interscope

Madonna notches historic 44th no. 1 on Dance Club Songs Chart

The Queen of Pop reigns again with 'Living for Love,' tying with George Strait, the King of Country, for the most leaders on a single Billboard chart.

Madonna makes Billboard chart history, as she earns her 44th No. 1 on Dance Club Songs, where "Living for Love" lifts 2-1. (The ranking, dated March 7, will refresh on Billboard.com on Thursday, Feb. 26.)

With the coronation, Madonna equals George Strait, who's logged 44 No. 1s on Hot Country Songs, for the most leaders ever by an act on a singular Billboard chart.

It's fitting history for the artists also known, respectively, and reverently, as the Queen of Pop and the King of Country.

With her 44th leading title 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 as many No. 1s as they have combined: 22 each. (The chart launched as a national survey in the Billboard issue dated Aug. 28, 1976.)

Madonna, who performed "Love" at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 8, matches Strait's esteemed honor, with the latter icon having stood at the Hot Country Songs summit with 44 smashes between 1982 and 2009. He first reigned with "Fool Hearted Memory" (Aug. 28, 1982) and most recently ruled with "River of Love" (April 18, 2009.)

"Love" introduces Madonna's 13th studio album, Rebel Heart, due March 10.

"The reason I wanted to call the record Rebel Heart was because I felt like it explored two very distinct sides of my personality," Madonna told Billboard's Keith Caulfield in December. "The rebellious, renegade side of me, and the romantic side of me."

Specifically of the house music-infused "Love," the ever-youthful Material Girl similarly said, "It's kind of like the old me and the new me all mixed in together."

Looking ahead, all Madonna needs is one more leader, perhaps also from Rebel Heart, to pass Strait and claim vaunted chart history -- 45 No. 1s on one ranking -- all to herself.

For now, at least, Madonna and Strait make for unparalleled Billboard chart royalty.

Here is an updated look at Madonna's 44 Dance Club Songs No. 1s, beginning with the double-sided single "Holiday"/"Lucky Star," which reached the top the week of Sept. 24, 1983. You'll notice that one of her No. 1s is an entire album: You Can Dance (1988), a collection of mostly remixes of previously released songs (and one new cut, "Spotlight"). Prior to Feb. 23, 1991, the chart wasn't always song-specific and full albums were, at some points, allowed to chart.

1983, "Holiday"/"Lucky Star" (five weeks at No. 1)
1984, "Like a Virgin" (three)
