That's interesting. The first and the last song above the actual single...

Seen some suggestions of about 84k in sales in the US, meaning 2nd place in the charts under a deluxe reissue of Luke Combs' last album which moved 107k.

Apparently both under the Sony umbrella, so I'm sure some interesting conversations may be had behind the scenes!

Bruce Springsteen, With His New Album, Is The First To Land A Spot In The Billboard Top Five In Six Different Decades

Bruce Springsteen is one of the most popular American singer-songwriters of all time, and with the release of his new album, he now has a new title no one else can claim: according to Billboard, “The Boss” is the only artist in history to have an album chart in the top five in every one of the past six decades.

KEY FACTS

Letter to You, Springsteen’s 20th studio album, debuted at the second spot of the new Billboard 200 chart this week, Billboard reported.

With this release, his first in the ‘20s, he’s now had at least one top five album in every decade since his career began in the ‘70s, a feat achieved by no other artist ever before.

According to Billboard, he had two top five releases in the ‘70s, five in the ‘80s, three in the ‘90s, six in the ‘00s, four in the ‘10s and now one in the ‘20s—though he still has nearly 9 years to add another top album to this decade’s count.

Despite Springsteen’s enduring popularity through the decades, his 1984 album Born in the U.S.A. remains his most successful release in terms of sales, and is one of the best-selling albums of all time.

KEY BACKGROUND

Springsteen, a native of the Jersey Shore, made a career with his rock tunes that deal with themes related to working-class American life, like factory layoffs, the legacy of the Vietnam War and class inequality. Springsteen narrated a commercial for presidential candidate Joe Biden released last month that highlighted Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania featuring Springsteen’s 1984 song My Hometown.

Bruce Springsteen 'Letter to You' album makes Billboard chart history

It's a record-breaking hit.

“Letter to You,” the latest album from Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Album Sales, Vinyl Albums and Tastemaker Albums charts, and No. 2 on the overall Billboard 200 album chart for the Nov. 7-dated issue, the music industry trade journal has announced.

“Letter to You's” No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart means that the Boss becomes the first act with a new Top 5-charting album in the United Sates in each of the last six decades, from the 1970s to the 2020s.

That's going back to “Born to Run” at No. 3 in 1975.

Country star Luke Combs’ deluxe reissue of “What You See Is What You Get” is No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for Nov. 7. The Combs re-release was a hit thanks to a large number of streaming equivalent albums on the chart.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks albums based on “multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units,” according to Billboard. Units are composed of album sales, track equivalent albums, and streaming equivalent albums, with metrics factored in for full albums, individual songs and streams from an album.

“Letter to You” scored with 96,000 equivalent album units while the reissue of  “What You See Is What You Get” notched 109,000 equivalent album units.

The rest of the U.S. Top 10 albums:

 3. Pop Smoke’s “Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon”  with 61,000 equivalent album units; 4. Ty Dolla $ign's “Featuring Ty Dolla $ign” (44,000); 5. Juice WRLD’s “Legends Never Die” (42,000); 6. 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s “Savage Mode II” (36,000); 7. Lil Baby’s “My Turn” (35,000); 8. “Hamilton: An American Musical” (29,000); 9. Machine Gun Kelly’s “Tickets to My Downfall” (28,000); 10. Harry Styles’ “Fine Line” (27,000).

In Flanders (the dutch speaking part of Belgium), Letter To You held the no. 1-spot for three weeks in a row. Now it has dropped tot no. 3, being surrounded by three new albums.

This album was Bruce's 7th no. 1 album in Flanders since 1995 (start of the new charts system). That's a record for a foreign artist in Belgium that Bruce shares with Dutch singer Marco Borsato.

 

Another interesting fact: the first album to hold the no. 1 spot when the new charts system was introduced in 1995 was ... Greatest Hits by Bruce Springsteen.
