With the Top Two success of his latest album, Letter To You, Bruce Springsteen has actually made history. Forbes reported that according to Billboard calculations, “The Boss” is the first artist to chart an album in the Top Five of the magazine’s Billboard 200 albums chart for the past six decades.

According to Billboard, “(Springsteen) had two Top Five releases in the 1970’s, five in the 1980’s, three in the 1990’s, six in the 2000’s, four in the 2010’s and now one in the 2020’s — though he still has nearly 9 years to add another top album to this decade’s count.”
