Thanks to appearing on the Super Bowl (and having virtually no competition), Bruce Springsteen’s new album, Working on a Dream, debuted at the top of the charts this week with 224,000 albums sold. The Boss knocks off Taylor Swift, whose Fearless sat on top for eight weeks (it came in at number two with 55,000 copies sold).
Working on a Dream is Springsteen’s ninth number one album, moving the Boss into a tie with the Rolling Stones for third most number one albums. Jay-Z and Elvis each have 10, and the Beatles have 19. [Billboard]
