It was bound to happen. Adele had to be taken out of the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts at some point, and Bruce Springsteen’s 17th album, Wrecking Ball, did just that — pure demolition. We can’t say Adele didn’t have a good run with her 23 weeks in the top spot.
Wrecking Ball hitting No. 1 puts Springsteen tied for the third most No. 1s in the history of the Billboard charts. He is tied with the King, Elvis Presley, at 10. Only The Beatles and Jay-Z are right in front of him.
