The Rising hits No. 1 (US charts)!

Congratulations, Bruce!

Springsteen Soars To No. 1 With 'The Rising'




Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising" (Columbia) rockets to No. 1 on The Billboard 200 after selling 525,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, to earn the Boss his best week ever in the SoundScan era for a single album. The impressive, media-hyped debut allows Springsteen to easily best Linkin Park's "[Reanimation]" (Warner Bros.), which lands at No. 2 on first-week sales of 270,000 units, the strongest showing ever from a remix album.

Springsteen's last No. 1 was his 1995 "Greatest Hits" set, which was then his biggest SoundScan sales week, falling just short of 250,000 units. His biggest albums came prior to 1991, the year when SoundScan was instituted. 1984's "Born in the USA" has been certified 15-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for 15 million units shipped, while the live box "Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band 1975-1985" has been certified 13-times platinum.

"The Rising" is the fifth-best debut of the year. It trails opening week totals from Eminem's Web/Aftermath/Interscope set "The Eminem Show" (1.3 million), Nelly's Fo' Reel/Universal release "Nellyville" (714,000), Dave Matthews Band's RCA effort "Busted Stuff" (622,000), and Celine Dion's Epic comeback "A New Day Has Come" (527,000).

2 - Reanimation, Linkin Park

3 - Nellyville, Nelly 0

4 - Now 10, Various Artists

5 - The Eminem Show, Eminem

6 - Unleashed, Toby Keith

7 - Busted Stuff, Dave Matthews Band

8 - Let Go, Avril Lavigne

9 - All I Have, Amerie

10 - By The Way, Red Hot Chili Peppers
