The Beatles Have The Fourth-Most Top 10 Albums Of All Time
This week, The Beatles are back in the top 10 on the U.S. albums chart with their latest collection, Live at the Hollywood Bowl. The new live effort kicks off at No. 7 with 36,000 equivalent units shifted, and while that chart placement and the number of units moved aren’t particularly impressive for one of the best-selling groups of all time, it does keep the Fab Four in some pretty rare company.Live at the Hollywood Bowl is The Beatles’ 32nd top 10 album, which is an incredible feat for any act. Since Billboard began curating and releasing the Billboard 200, the all-encompassing albums ranking that measures the 200 most popular titles in any week based on an algorithm that combines sales and streams, only four acts have managed to place at least 30 titles in the top 10. According to Billboard, The Beatles are still at the lower end of the list, but they are joined by The Rolling Stones (who have 36), Barbra Streisand (34) and Frank Sinatra (33).
