Buffett’s new album “Equal Strain on All Parts” debuts at No. 1 on three Billboard charts

From Forbes: Jimmy Buffett Posthumously Hits No. 1 On Two Billboard Charts For The First Time

Just months after he passed away unexpectedly after a private battle with cancer, Jimmy Buffett has managed something incredible. The singer-songwriter’s first posthumous album, Equal Strain on All Parts, has arrived, and fans rushed to support it the minute it dropped. Now, the title has given the musician his first No. 1 hit on several Billboard charts.

Equal Strain on All Parts debuts at No. 1 on three Billboard charts this week, proving that Buffett still has a sizable fan base. The posthumous set gives the singer his first leader on a pair of rankings, as the title launches atop both the Top Rock & Alternative Albums and Top Rock Albums tallies.

While it might mark his first No. 1 on both of those charts, Buffett isn’t actually new to either of them. Equal Strain on All Parts marks his fifth top 10 win on those two lists and his seventh placement overall.

Equal Strain on All Parts also launches atop the Top Americana Albums chart. Buffett has ruled that ranking once before. The new project also marks his fifth top 10 winner on the list—comprising all of his placements on the ranking.

As it dominates some rankings, Buffett’s set also opens inside the top 10 on both the Billboard 200 and the Top Album Sales charts. On the former, the singer-songwriter arrives at No. 6 with 53,000 equivalent album units earned. That sum includes 51,000 pure purchases, which is enough to send the title right to No. 3 on the Top Album Sales tally.

  1. We are all Jimmy Buffett fans called the “ parrot heads”( since 1974) love to have him back, in place of the number one billboard ranking. I know he would too. We love you, Jimmy I know you’re smiling down on us now, bubbles up and equal strains on all parts. And we are all floundering of just the thought of your gone, hit our souls.

  2. Thank you Jimmy Buffett for finishing your latest album as you were completing your time here on earth. Don’t know for sure, but it certainly seems you had a notion where your health was taking you. Only met you a few brief times in Key West and at private plane airports. I remember you being pleasant and readily recalling the next round was on me. I will smile every time I hear your songs and your name. “Bubbles up” ! Young man, thank you, thank you….Salut!!
