After debuting at number one two weeks ago with less than 100,000 copies, Bruce Springsteen's latest album "High Hopes" has become hopeless by dropping from number 8 to number 29 on Billboard's latest chart, released Thursday afternoon. The album has sold around 13,000 copies this past week. This certainly isn't good news for Springsteen and doesn't bode well for his upcoming tour.
Some people believe that Bruce Springsteen's politics got in the way of his music. However, many longtime fans believe "High Hopes" just didn't live up to the hype. Many of the songs sound like they were leftovers from Springsteen's previous efforts. Even music critics, who usually love Springsteen, didn't exactly rave over his new release.
Still, fans should be happy that Springsteen is still here and making music. Music legends such as Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Whitney Houston all died due to being overwhelmed by fame. Bruce Springsteen seems to be living a happy life and one flop record isn't going to take anything away from that or his legendary status.
