The Beach Boys have broken The Beatles‘ record for the longest span of top 10 albums in the history of the US Billboard 200 chart after their comeback album ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio‘ entered at #3 this week.
The LP marks the return of Brian Wilson to the Beach Boys fold as they celebrate their 50th anniversary, and is also their first brand new studio album since 1992.
And in scoring a high new entry on the Billboard 200, The Beach Boys have now stretched their run of top 10s in the US to 49 years, following their first chart success, ‘Surfin’ USA‘, in 1963. The Beatles’ span currently stands at just under 48 years, after the Fab Four last entered the Billboard 200 top 10 in October 2011 with their singles collection ‘1‘, while their first chart success arrived with ‘Meet the Beatles‘ in February 1964.
The Rolling Stones are now in third place, having intermittently enjoyed 45 years on the US chart since first entering in December 1964.Just Published:
