’Pop’ Music Tops In U.S., U.K.FRED BRONSON
POP GOES THE WORLD, thanks to the debut of U2’s latest album at No. 1 on both sides of the pond. The Irish band enters The Billboard 200 at pole position and remains atopthe British album chart, where it debuted at No. 1 last issue. In the U.S., "Pop" (Island) is the third U2 set in a row to enter at the pinnacle. "Achtung Baby" did the same in 1991, as did "Zooropa" in 1993.
"Pop" is the fifth U2 album to reach the summit. 1987’s "The Joshua Tree" and 1988’s"Rattle And Hum" were the group’s first two chart-toppers. U2 is now tied with PaulMcCartney and Chicago in third place for the most consecutive No. 1 albums. The onlyacts with more are the Beatles (nine) and Elton John (seven), discounting the rereleaseof Elton’s "Empty Sky," which interrupted his run of No. 1 LPs.
