According to Billboard, The Beatles last recorded album is No 1. on the midweek chart. There’s a strong chance it will end the week on top as well.

The first release was the top album for 17 weeks in all, ten of those consecutively.

“Abbey Road” was the last studio album recorded when The Beatles were together. However, the album “Let It Be” was released later, in May 1970.

“Abbey Road” featured hits like “Come Together” and “Octopus’s Garden.”
