Despite selling only 56,000 copies, the singer's 12th studio album appeared at the top of the charts for the 12th time in her career, one more than Elvis Presley's 11.

Madonna's latest record will undoubtedly benefit from the news and her upcoming international tour, one that the singer has been diligently preparing for.

"There's been lots of cardio and I'm doing a combination of pilates and dance cardio," Madonna said. "And there's been plenty of skipping rope work. The envelope I'm pushing for is as spectacular a show as I can. It should be a feast for the eyes and ears."
