The icon furthers his mark for the most entries in the chart's history as "Looking Up" debuts.
Elton John extends his record for the most appearances in the 54-year history of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, as "Looking Up" enters at No. 20. The song marks his 71st entry on the ranking. Barbra Streisand ranks second with 64 AC hits.
"Looking Up" is the lead single from John's Feb. 5 studio album Wonderful Crazy Night, co-produced by John and T Bone Burnett, who worked on John's last studio set, 2013's The Diving Board. The song also marks his highest AC debut (on the chart dated Jan. 30) since "You Can Make History (Young Again)" launched at No. 11 in 1996.
John first charted on AC with the No. 9-peaking classic "Your Song," which bowed on the Dec. 26, 1970, ranking. He tallied his 70th entry, the No. 18-peaking "Can't Stay Alone Tonight" (from The Diving Board), in 2014.
