Elvis Presley has overtaken Madonna to take the record title for the Most UK No.1 albums by a solo artist. The Wonder Of You, which features Elvis' voice above an orchestral score performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, sold 63,500 copies after being released last week to send it to the top of the charts.

Its success comes almost 40 years since the death of the singer in August 1977. Elvis' 13 No.1s combined have spent 66 weeks at the top of the Official Albums Chart.

The Wonder of You beat off competition from new releases such as Michael Bublé (Nobody But Me), Lady Gaga (Joanne), Leonard Cohen (You Want it Darker), along with the previous week's No.1, Walls by Kings of Leon, to claim the top spot.

Elvis has the biggest time span of No.1 albums in UK chart history – 59 years 359 days, from 10 November 1956 to 3 November 2016.

The Beatles are the only act with more UK No.1 albums – 15, from Please Please Me in April 1963 to 1 in November 2000. Madonna's 12 UK chart-toppers were achieved between 21 September 1985 (Like a Virgin) and 7 April 2012 (MDNA).

Robbie Williams had been hoping to equal Elvis Presley and Madonna for the most UK No.1 albums by a solo artist with The Heavy Entertainment Show which is released later this week, but if the album goes to No.1 on the chart dated 17 November, as expected, he will now only tie with Madonna in second place, with both acts having 12 UK No.1s apiece.

Speaking to OfficialCharts.com, Elvis' former wife Priscilla Presley spoke of her pride upon hearing news of the new record.

"This achievement is something I know Elvis would have been so thankful for," she said. "I am incredibly proud of all he has accomplished and so grateful to the UK fans who have kept his legacy alive with all of their support. "I hope they continue to listen and love his music as much as I do."
