Did you know that Michael Bolton’s ‘Time, Love & Tenderness’ was the first #1 album of the SoundScan era?
Starting in week of May 25th 1991, the Billboard 200 ranked the top-selling albums based on Nielsen SoundScan verified electronically-scanned unit sales instead of basic retailer reports. As such, the first chart-topper following this change of policy was Bolton’s now 8x platinum ‘Time, Love & Tenderness’ album.
Bolton’s ‘Time, Love & Tenderness’ included the Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit ‘When a Man Loves a Woman’. Watch the video for the song below:
