Bruce Springsteen has really doubled down on his nickname of The Boss, as he has just scored another top 5 album on the Billboard chart and thereby making chart history.
Letter To You, Springsteen’s twentieth album, was released late last month and has hit #2 this week, with 96,000 equivalent album units sold.
This latest achievement means Springsteen has become the first artist in history to earn a top 5 album in six consecutive decades, beginning with his third album Born To Run in 1975.
As reported by Pitchfork, a similar record was made by Bob Dylan earlier this year with his excellent album, Rough and Rowdy Ways. He became the first artist to have a top 40 album in each decade since the 60s, marking seven decades total.
