Bruce Springsteen earned his 20th top 10 album on the Billboard 200 charts with his latest release, Western Stars.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. The new June 29-dated chart, where Western starts at No. 2, will be posted in full on Billboard‘s websites on June 25.

Springsteen first hit the top 10 back in 1975 with Born to Run. His last album to hit the top 10 was in 2016 with the retrospective compilation release Chapter and Verse, which debuted and peaked at No. 5.

Very few artists have earned at least 20 top 10 albums in the history of the Billboard 200 chart, dating back to 1956.  The Rolling Stones have the most top 10s, with 37, followed by Barbra Streisand (34), The Beatles (32), Frank Sinatra (32), Elvis Presley (27), Bob Dylan (22), Madonna (22), George Strait (21), Elton John (20), Paul McCartney/Wings (20) and Springsteen (20).
