Elton John has extended his run as the most prolific performer on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Chart in America with his 69th hit on the countdown. Home Again, the first single from his debut album for Capitol Records, The Diving Board, crashes into the chart at 21 - the first time he has been on the countdown since 2009. Elton now has five more Adult Contemporary hits than second-placed Barbra Streisand and 11 more than Neil Diamond. He first appeared on the Billboard chart back in 1970 with Your Song, and he also shares the countdown's most number ones (15) with The Carpenters.
