Bruce Springsteen has another hit on his hands. The Boss’ latest album, “Letter To You,” lands at two on the “Billboard” 200 Album chart.
Bruce moved 96,000 albums this week, and 92,000 in album sales, which means “Letter To You” debuts on top of the Album Sales chart. It is also Bruce’s biggest sales week since 2014, when “High Hopes” sold 99,000 albums. The album also had the second-largest vinyl sales week for 2020, with 18,000 copies sold.
“I just took a quick glance at it and it looked like a nice guitar, so I jumped in the car with it…all the songs from the album came out of it.” – Bruce on the gift from a fan that inspired the new album #LetterToYou, out now. https://t.co/e917xYFrzJ pic.twitter.com/ox0rR1QAYC
