The Boss has recently become the first artist to have a Billboard Top Five album(s) in each of the last six decades. 

Bruce Springsteen had two Top Five albums in the '70s, 'Born To Run', followed by 'Darkness On The Edge Of Town'.

In the '80s, 'The River' hit No. 1 in the Billboard charts, along with 'Nebraska', 'Born In The USA', 'Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band 1975-1985', and 'Tunnel Of Love.'

The '90s saw Springsteen's album 'Lucky Town' peak at No. 3, 'Human Touch' rose to No. 2, and his 1995 'Greatest Hits' compilation hit No.1 on the charts.

The following decade, The Boss had six albums reach the Top 5: ‘The Rising’, ‘Devils & Dust’, ‘We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions’, ‘Magic’ and ‘Working On A Dream.'

Springsteen achieved four Top Fives in the 2010s with his 2019 album 'Western Stars.'

His most recent 2020 album, 'Letter To You', has just debuted on the Billboard Hot 200 at No.2, completing his six-decade-streak.

What an achievement! Congratulations, boss!
