With their most recent album, “Hackney Diamonds,” The Rolling Stones have lately created history. This week, the album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. You could wonder, then, what might be the record.
They are apparently the only band to have top 10 albums in every decade since the 1960s in the United States thanks to their chart success.
The band already held the record for the artist with the most number-one albums in the most decades back in their own United Kingdom.
“Hackney Diamonds” became the band’s 14th number-one album when it debuted at the top of the U.K. Albums Chart.
With thirty-eight Top Ten albums—a record that takes into account both new releases and the popularity of re-recordings of past albums—The Stones also held the title of “the artist who has the most top-ten albums of all time.”
Do The Rolling Stones Have Any Competition?
Barbara Streisand is the name that is most likely to break the record of “having top ten albums in every decade since the 1960s.” Before the end of the 2020s, nevertheless, she must release at least one album to the top of the charts.
With 34 top-ten albums to her credit, Streisand is tied with the Rolling Stones for the record for most such albums ever. Given that both The Beatles and Frank Sinatra had thirty-two top ten albums each, those two artists are the closest to her figures.
