Madonna's "Celebration" overtakes Muse's "The Resistance" to debut at the top ofBillboard European Top 100 Albums survey.
The "Celebration" retrospective is new at #1 in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Ireland and Denmark, #2 in Spain, Portugal and Finland, #3 in Switzerland, #4 in Austria and #5 in Norway.
The compilation's 77,000 first-week U.K. sales give Madonna her 11th #1 album there (including 1996's "Evita" soundtrack). That draws her level with Elvis Presley with the most U.K. chart-toppers of any solo artist, only behind the Beatles' best total for any artist of 15.
The European Top 100 Albums - the European adaptation of the Billboard 200 albums chart - was created by Billboard in 1987. Their first number one album was Madonna's "True Blue".
