This week is like a return to the 1980s with both Madonna and Lionel Richie topping the Billboard 200 album chart with their latest albums. Madonna chalked up her eighth No. 1 album with MDNA, and Richie ranked number two with his countrified Tuskegee, a collection of his classic tunes performed as duets with some of today’s hottest country stars.

But there was no rivalry between the two as they battled it out for the top spot, only love, as demonstrated through yesterday’s Twitter exchange.

The former neighbors created a lively discussion showing genuine affection and familiarity with each other.

 

 

 

 

Madonna’s most recent number one album was Hard Candy from 2008. Richie’s last time topping the charts was in 1986 when his song “Dancing On The Ceiling” spent two weeks at No. 1 on a different chart, the Hot 100 singles chart.
