Roxette back on the charts in the U.S.

After an absence of a little over 10 years, Roxette is back on the charts in the United States. “Radio” debuts on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart at #30 today! Per comments on Facebook and Twitter: “Great to be back in the charts in the U.S.!!!”

Gary Trust, in the magazine’s “Chart Beat” column, wrote:

ROX ON: Venerable Swedish pop duo Roxette makes its first appearance on Adult Contemporary since the No. 27-peaking “Wish I Could Fly” in 2000, as “She’s Got Nothing On (But the Radio)” tunes in at No. 30.

The song appears on the pair’s first album since 2001, Charm School. Released digitally in the U.S. in February, the set arrived at No. 1 on the German Albums chart in March. Roxette had last led a Billboard chart 10 years earlier, when Room Service topped the Sweden Albums list.

Roxette has now placed titles on the AC survey in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s, becoming the only duo to do so.

The twosome twice rose as high as No. 2 on AC, with first chart entry “Listen to Your Heart” in 1989 and “Pretty Woman” love ballad “It Must Have Been Love” in 1990.
