Bruce Springsteen's latest album Wrecking Ball has already topped the Billboard 200 charts this week, beating Adele's Grammy-winning album 21. The album has also earned the legendary singer his tenth No.1 album, reported Huffington Post.



The album has reportedly already sold 196,000 units in its debut week as opposed to Adele's 190,000 sales.



Interestingly, the singer has not only overthrown Adele's 23-week charts monopoly but has also tied with Elvis Presley for the third-most No. 1 albums. Beatles stands unbeaten with a record of 19, the site reported.



The album Wrecking Ball is an angst-ridden album inspired from the Occupy Wall Street movement. While it got mixed reviews from critics, Rolling Stone said, "Wrecking Ball is the most despairing, confrontational and musically turbulent album Bruce Springsteen has ever made."



However, the lyrics may be sinister but the catchy beats and Bruce Springsteen's voice make the album a must-watch anyway and its position on the charts definitely doesn't surprise us.
