‘Home Again,’ the first single from Elton’s upcoming Capitol Records debut, has pushed him further into the lead for the most AC entries in the chart’s 52-year history.

The pop maestro pads his mark for the most appearances in the 52-year history of Billboards Adult Contemporary chart, as Home Again soars in at No. 21. The song marks his 69th entry on the ranking.

This is the first time Elton has been on the countdown since 2009.

The singer now has five more Adult Contemporary hits than second-placed Barbra Streisand and 11 more than Neil Diamond.

He first appeared on the Billboard chart back in 1970 with Your Song, and he also shares the countdown’s most number ones (15) with the Carpenters.
