Almost 40 years after his untimely passing, Elvis Presley has still got the charts – and the record books – all shook up.
If I Can Dream, a collection of Elvis classics featuring orchestral reworkings by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, tops the Official Albums Chart this week, giving The King his 12th
UK chart-topping album.
This means Elvis now has more Number 1 albums in the UK than any other male solo artist, and puts him level with Madonna.
Receiving the award on Elvis’s behalf, the star’s former wife Priscilla Presley told OfficialCharts.com: “This is an album that Elvis always really wanted to do and he would have been
so pleased to know his fans are still there and they continue to love his music. The most talented team put this album together and helped us all realise an unfulfilled dream.”
Elvis claims the Number 1 spot with 79,000 chart sales, giving him one of the second-fastest selling albums of the year.
The album is also NUMBER ONE in Australia and Scotland.
