Elton John Charts 72nd AC Hit

Elton John extends his record for the most appearances in the nearly 55-year history of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, as "A Good Heart" debuts at No. 30. The song marks his 72nd entry on the ranking. Barbra Streisand ranks second with 64 AC hits.

"A Good Heart" is the second single from John's album Wonderful Crazy Night. "Looking Up" introduced the set and rose to No. 12 on AC in March, becoming his highest-charting hit on the tally since 2005, when "Answer in the Sky" reached No. 7. Wonderful Crazy Night opened at No. 8 on the Feb. 27 Billboard 200, arriving as his 19th top 10 on the chart. It has sold 95,000 copies in the U.S. to date, according to Nielsen Music.

John first charted on AC with the No. 9-peaking classic "Your Song," which bowed on the Dec. 26, 1970, survey.
