Madonna’s MDNA leads the charge for Number 1 album in UK

Madonna is setting the pace this week as new album MDNA leads the pack in the Official Albums Chart race.

Her twelfth studio album has seen the Queen of Pop collaborating with top flight dance producers including William Orbit, LMFAO and Benny Benassi, and features single Girl Gone Wild, the video for which harked back to Madonna’s classic Erotica days.

MDNA is looking like a solid Number 1 for the 53 year old pop icon this weekend, and leads today by a cool 29,000 copies.

Voguing is a dance class led by the fabulous Nathaniel Parchment. It is a highly stylized, modern house dance that evolved out of the Harlem ballroom scene in the 1960s. It gained mainstream exposure when it was featured in Madonna’s video “Vogue” in 1990, and when showcased in the 1990 documentary Paris is Burning.
