A New Record For The King

When his latest album ( 30 #1 Hits ) went to No. 1 on The Billboard 200, Elvis Presley became the artist with the longest span of chart-topping albums. "Elvis Presley" went to No. 1 the week of May 5, 1956, so the span between that album and "Elvis 30 #1 Hits" is 46 years, five months, and three weeks. Before Presley claimed this record, it was held by the Beatles. Their span of No. 1 albums stretches from "Meet the Beatles," which reached the top the week of Feb. 15, 1964, to "1," which fell from pole position the week of Feb. 3, 2001, for a total of 36 years, 11 months, and two weeks.
