Bruce Springsteen Bows "High" On The Charts
January 22, 2014


Bruce Springsteen
Bruce Springsteen scores his 11th #1 album this week with High Hopes, shifting 99,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. With this latest chart-topper, Springsteen pulls ahead of Elvis Presley as the act with the third-most #1 albums in history, according to Billboard. The only acts ahead of The Boss are The Beatles (with 19 #1s) and Jay Z (with 13). Also worth noting is that High Hopes sold particularly well with online retailers, especially Amazon.com. The company carried an exclusive CD/DVD version of the album, with the DVD offering a full-length concert of Springsteen and the E Street Band performing the entire Born in the U.S.A. album.

Meanwhile, last week's #1 album, the soundtrack to Disney's Frozen, slips to #2 this week with 87,000 sold. The latest installment of the long-running Kidz Bop series, Kidz Bop 25, bows at #3 with 65,000. Beyoncé's self-titled album is #4 this week with 61,000, and
Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles scores a #5 debut with her first solo album, That Girl, which moved 54,000 units. Switchfoot bows at #6 with Fading West, selling 39,000 copies and giving the band its third Top 10 album.

Lorde's Pure Heroine is #7 with 31,000 sold, Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 sits at #8 with 29,000, and Katy Perry's Prism is #9 with 22,000. Imagine Dragons fills out the Top 10 with Night Visions, shifting another 20,000 copies this week.
