The icon furthers his lead for the most entries in the Adult Contemporary chart's 53-year history as 'Can't Stay Alone Tonight' debuts
Elton John extends his record for the most appearances in the nearly 53-year history of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, as "Can't Stay Alone Tonight" enters at No. 27. The song marks his 70th entry on the ranking.
The song is the second single from John's 30th studio album (and first on Capitol Records), "The Diving Board." Lead track "Home Again" reached No. 14 in September. "[Bernie Taupin and I] wrote 11 songs and recorded them in four days," John told Billboard last year of the set. Mixing gospel, blues, jazz, brass band and pop the album is "everything I love about American music." The album has sold 142,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
