Springsteen Scores Tenth Number One Album

I wrote yesterday about how Bruce has some strange circumstances surrounding his potential rise to the top of the Billboard charts. Between Adele dominating the charts for months and the passing of Whitney Houston causing a rocket rise in her record sales, the Boss reaching number one would not be quite as easy as it was in years past.

Bruce ended up reaching number one status for the tenth time in his career with “Wrecking Ball”, tying him for the third most number one’s of all time with some guy by the name of Elvis Presley.

According to this article,

Springsteen’s first No. 1 came with 1980′s “The River.” He last hit the top with his 2009 album “Working on a Dream,” which launched with 224,000. “Wrecking Ball” is also the Boss’ 17th top 10 album, stretching back to 1975′s “Born to Run.” It spent three weeks at No. 3.

An impressive feat for an artist who reinvents himself every couple of years. Bruce is set to embark on a world tour with dates in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia included. He’ll also be on the cover of the March 29th edition of Rolling Stone Magazine. 2012 may very well be another “year of the Boss.”
