After 45-Year Wait, James Taylor Earns His First No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart

Image

After a 45-year wait, legendary singer/songwriter James Taylor has earned his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with Before This World. The album, which was released on June 16 through Concord Records, arrives atop the chart dated July 4 — more than 45 years after Taylor arrived on the list with Sweet Baby James (on the March 14, 1970 list).

The new album launches atop the Billboard 200 with 97,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending June 21, according to Nielsen Music. Of its start, pure album sales equated to 96,000 copies sold -- Taylor’s best debut week for an album since his last studio effort, 2002’s October Road, launched at No. 4 with 154,000 sold.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Taylor surpasses Black Sabbath for the second-longest wait for a No. 1 -- the rock band's first chart-topper, 2013's 13, came 43 years after their self-titled debut bowed on Aug. 29, 1970. Tony Bennett's 54-year wait for his first No. 1 remains the longest -- between the Feb. 23, 1957 debut of Tony and the No. 1 launch of Duets II on Oct. 8, 2011.

Notably, Taylor achieves his first No. 1 after racking up a staggering 11 previous top 10-charting albums. Among all acts, only Neil Diamond accrued more top 10s before his first No. 1: 14 leading up to the chart-topping bow of 2008's Home Before Dark.

Taylor's fruitful chart career before his first No. 1 can be compared to other acts that have tallied major chart success -- but have fallen short of a No. 1. For example, rock band Rush and conductor Ray Conniff have each clocked 12 top 10 albums without topping the list. They are tied for the most top 10s without a No. 1.

Other acts without a No. 1 -- but with a bevy of top 10s -- include Sting, The Who (both with 10 top 10s), 311, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Kiss and Sheryl Crow (all with nine each).

Although Taylor lacked a No. 1 album until this week, he has earned a chart-topping single on the Billboard Hot 100: "You've Got a Friend." The tune topped the Hot 100 for one week on July 31, 1971. It's one of 21 Hot 100 hits for the singer.

10/8 Billboard charts:

https://theawl.com/soundscan-surprises- ... .di97yga4q

Soundscan Surprises, Week Ending 9/22
Back-catalog sales numbers of note from Nielsen SoundScan.

The definition of “back catalog” is: “at least 18 months old, have fallen below №100 on the Billboard 200 and do not have an active single on our radio.”

Only on the back catalog could Metallica drop four percentage points and still be number one. Metallica held five of the top thirty-two spots last week because they’re on tour in advance of their new double LP Hardwired…to Self-Destruct. Last night they played Webster Hall and just walked onstage and played, no intro, no opener. Very Metallica if you ask me (don’t ask me).

It’s been kind of a slow week otherwise, in the business of old record sales, but there are still some gems. Ed Sheeran is neck and neck with himself; his two records that are the same symbol just rotated forty-five degrees (+, X) each sold thirty-one hundred copies (don’t @ me about the serifs and letters vs. symbols, also did you know the plus sign doesn’t italicize in this font? Now you do).

Sheryl Crow and James Taylor and Korn all have greatest hits records on the chart, which seems very white and very expected. Matchbox Twenty only dropped two spots. But who are The Booth Brothers who have a Best of? A Southern Gospel trio, of course! They are touring the “Mexican Riviera” in November if you’re interested…

1. METALLICA METALLICA 4,501 copies
3. MATCHBOX TWENTY YOURSELF OR SOMEONE LIKE YOU 4,129 copies
7. SHEERAN*ED + 3,143 copies
8. SHEERAN*ED X 3,130 copies
29. CROW*SHERYL VERY BEST OF SHERYL CROW 1,945 copies
50. TAYLOR*JAMES GREATEST HITS 1,611 copies
