For the first time in 15 years, pop divas Madonna and Whitney Houston have Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time.
Houston's rendition of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" reached number 7 following her sudden death last Saturday. Madonna, meanwhile, saw her new single, "Give Me All Your Luvin'," which features Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., reach number 10 on the charts.
Houston and Madonna last shared chart space on the Top 10 during the week of January 27, 1996, "when Houston's former No. 1 'Exhale (Shoop, Shoop)' held at No. 2 (for the ninth of its 11 frames at the runner-up spot after its lone week at the summit) and Madonna's 'You'll See' rebounded 10-8 after peaking at No. 6," according to Billboard.
