After more than three decades on Billboard’s charts, dance/pop duo Erasure has notched hit songs and albums on a range of tallies, including the Billboard Hot 100, Pop Songs, Top Dance/Electronic Albums, Alternative Songs and even Holiday Albums. Now, the act expands its reach to a surprising genre: classical.
Erasure’s new album World Beyond debuts at No. 1 on the Classical Albums and Classical Crossover Albums charts dated March 24 -- the act’s first leader on both lists. It starts with 2,000 copies sold in the week ending March 15, according to Nielsen Music.
The album is a classical reworking of Erasure’s previous studio effort, 2017’s World Be Gone, which debuted and peaked at No. 3 on the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. It also hit No. 22 on Alternative Albums and No. 31 on Top Rock Albums, among other lists.
