Robbie Williams has been in the business as a solo artist for 25 years. That alone commands respect. In addition, he is also very successful. In the British album charts he can now even break an old record of Elvis Presley.
Robbie Williams’ best-of album XXV was released on September 9. On Friday, the work reached the top of the British charts, giving the musician a record in his home country. As the British Daily Mail reports, Williams has now taken the throne of the official UK album charts a total of 14 times with the new success. This breaks Elvis Presley’s previous record as a solo artist for most UK number one albums. As a group, the Beatles hold the record with 15 top spots.
Including his work with Take That, Robbie Williams now has a total of 19 albums to his credit that have topped the UK charts. Only Sir Paul McCartney of the Beatles has more: he could celebrate chart success a total of 23 times with The Beatles, Wings or as a solo artist.
Robbie Williams: ‘Fans never took it for granted’
Williams said on Friday about his new album, according to the Daily Mail: “I’m so happy it made it to number one and while it feels strange to receive an award in these dark times, I just wanted to say thank you all for your support. your support and dedicating this to the fans that I have never taken for granted and will never take for granted.”
In addition to orchestral versions of his greatest hits, the new single “Lost” can be heard on the album “XXV”. The song “is about the times in my life when I’ve run away from myself and been very inconsiderate,” the singer said in an announcement. Williams is touring the UK and Ireland with XXV this fall. The former Take That member is celebrating a semicircular anniversary this year: the music star has been on stage as a solo singer for 25 years.
