This week in 1975--November 1st, to be precise--Elton took to the tropics for his fifth of nine career Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s. This was achieved with his single Island Girl.
And yesterday Elton posted the following on Instagram:
''Wow! Triple platinum for Rocket Man: Number Ones. Thanks to all my fans for supporting my music and everyone at Universal Music Group.''
Rocket Man Number Ones is a collection of chart-toppers from the first 35 years of Elton's career. It contains gems like Goodbye Yellow Brick Road; Sacrifice; Philadelphia Freedom; and a cover of Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.
