Madonna is one lucky star.

The Material Girl has officially dethroned the King himself, Elvis Presley, across the pond.

By having her new album, MDNA, top the U.K. charts, that's how.

The feat marks Madonna's 12th collection of music to hit the No. 1 spot, which puts her slightly ahead of Presley, who "only" had 11 albums do so during his career.

Such an accomplishment is no doubt welcome news for the 53-year-old singer, seeing how her album's first single, "Give Me All Your Luvin'," only reached No. 37 when it debuted back in February.
