Bruce Springsteen takes High Hopes to the top of the U.S. charts

Bruce Springsteen is back at the top of the U.S. albums chart - his new release High Hopes has debuted at number one. It's The Boss' 11th Billboard 200 number one, and gives the singer/songwriter the edge over Elvis Presley as the act with the third most chart-toppers. Springsteen and Presley were previously tied with 10 each. Only the Beatles (19) and Jay Z (13) have more. High Hopes fell just short of 100,000 sales in its first week on release, becoming Springsteen's first studio album to miss that mark since chart compilers at Nielsen SoundScan started tracking data in 1991. The rocker last hit the top of the charts in 2012 with Wrecking Ball. The soundtrack to Disney's animated hit Frozen slips a spot to two, but becomes the first album of its kind to spend three weeks in the top two since Miley Cyrus' Hannah Montana: The Movie was a hit almost five years ago. The latest Kidz Bop hits compilation debuts at three, while Beyonce's self-titled album and Jennifer Nettles' solo debut, That Girl, round out the new top five.
