As Elton turns 67, Billboard has announced that the pop icon continues to further his lead for the most entries in the Adult Contemporary chart's 53-year history - as 'Can't Stay Alone Tonight' debuts.
Can't Stay Alone Tonight is making its entrance at #27. The song marks his 70th entry on the ranking. This is the second single from The Diving Board album, released in the fall of 2013.
Elton first charted on AC with the No. 9-peaking Your Song, which bowed on the Dec. 26, 1970, ranking. Aloe Blacc has interpolated the ballad in his single The Man, which last week hit the Billboard Hot 100's Top Ten, granting Elton and Bernie Taupin their first top 10 as writers since 1998.
Along with holding the record for the most AC visits, the music-maker also boasts the most No. 1s (15, a mark he shares with the Carpenters) and top 10s (39). And when Billboard celebrated the survey's 50th anniversary in 2011, Elton was honoured as the chart's all-time top performer.
