Ugh if TF went number 1 in 2009 as it rightfully should've, now Gaga would make 3 decades with LG6 in 2020, but yeah TF and TFM EP being separated in November 2009 kind of ****ed up its BB200 debut.

Nope. A entire decade went by from 1989 with Like A Prayer to 2000s with Music.

Erotica, Immaculate Collection and Ray Of Light peaked at #2. Bedtime at #3. I know, it sucks

That’s sad huh:lakitu: but she will get it in 2030.

 

i bet maroon 5, mariah, Taylor beyonce and Eminem are the next in line to get this. 

I don’t think Rihanna is making music in 2030s so gaga ariana and maybe Adele bruno drake and Ed will get it first in the 2030s

Umm, Michael as a solo artist didn't have a #1 album in the 70s, so it's still back at 3 decades.

All Janet has to do is come out with another #1 album during a noncompetitive week in the 2020s and she will close that gap.:gaycat2:

but barbra will widen it again with another #1 album

Yes and it says Brice by accident. I’ll update it to Bruce when I make another update since I was lucky to be able to make 3 updates without problems. Not sure if it’ll let me edit again. I’ll wait until later to update it from Brice to Bruce:gaycat1:

Are you basing the #1 albums by decades on the US chart?

 

The Rolling Stones seems to only have had #1 albums in 60s, 70s and 80s only

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rolling_Stones_discography

 

Not sure about Elvis Presley either, only #1 albums in the 50s, 60s and 70s

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elvis_Presley_albums_discography

I’ll check but I thought Elvis had a #1 in the 2000s. I’ll check and update today.
