Elvis becomes most successful artist in UK chart history

Elvis Presley has now become the most successful solo artist in the UK after his latest album 'The Wonder of You' went straight to the top of the official album charts last week.

That makes it Elvis' 13th UK number 1 album.

This latest album makes Elvis ahead of Madonna (12 number 1s), David Bowie (11), Robbie Williams (11) and Michael Jackson (10).

This incredible achievement has happened almost 40 years since his death.

'The Wonder of You' executive producer Priscilla Presley said:,“This achievement is something I know Elvis would have been so thankful for. 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.”

Elvis Presley has achieved more than one billion record sales worldwide to date.
