Elvis Presley, the King of Rock & Roll, leads all acts on the Billboard 200 with the most charted albums: 107 (between Aug. 17, 1963 through Oct. 10, 2015). Presley most recently hit the list with the collection Elvis Presley Forever, which peaked at No. 11 on the Sept. 5, 2015-dated chart. Presley's incredible sum is dozens ahead of the next-largest total, the 73 collected by country titan Willie Nelson.
