This Day in History: Billy Joel's Album Hits #1

  < BACK TO TOP

On this day in 1977, Bill Joel earned his first #1 album when 52nd Street topped the Billboard pop chart. 52nd Street was the highly anticipated follow-up to Joel’s 1977 breakthrough album The Stranger, which had achieved Platinum status and made Joel a household name on the strength of singles like “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song),” “Just The Way You Are” and “She’s Always A Woman.” The Stranger surpassed Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water as the biggest-selling album in Columbia Records history, but it just missed reaching #1 on the Billboard chart. 52nd Street, which included the radio hits “Big Shot,” “My Life” and “Honesty,” achieved that feat on November 18, 1978, and remained at the top of the charts for the next seven straight weeks, becoming the top-selling album of the year. It also went on to earn Billy Joel his first Album of the Year award at the 22nd Annual Grammy Awards in February 1980.
