With the #2 debut of the new Rough and Rowdy Ways, Bob Dylan is enjoying his highest-charting album since 2009's Together Through Life topped the charts.
However, Billboard notes that's not his only impressive achievement.
With Rough and Rowdy Ways' high debut, Dylan has become the first artist to land at least one new album in the Top 40 in each decade starting with the 1960s through to the 2020s.
Overall, this is Dylan's 23rd top 10 album, and 50th LP overall to reach the top 40; 1963's The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan was the first. Rough and Rowdy Ways earned 53,000 equivalent album units, which measures sales and streams.
