How old do you have to be to have a top five charting album six decades in a row? Bruce Springsteen did it at 71.
The singer/songwriter who was born in 1949 has released 20 studio albums in his lifetime. It all began in 1975 when his album Born to Run placed no. three on the Billboard charts. Now 45 years later, his new album Letter to You has debuted at no. two.
Billboard tweeted the historic accomplishment:
Bruce Springsteen Becomes First Act With Top Five-Charting Albums in Each of Last Six Decades With ‘Letter to You’ https://t.co/UjR4EqWhic— billboard (@billboard) 1604341684.0
With this debut, Springsteen is now the first act to have albums reach the top five six decades in a row. Even more impressive, Letter to You is his 21st album to chart on the top ten. Along with 20 studio albums the singer has released, there's also 23 live albums for you to hear him on.
