Best-selling rock album of 2022 so far is Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Unlimited Love”

Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ new album ‘Unlimited Love’ is the best-selling rock album of 2022 so far, according to NME.

The outlet reports that the band’s 12th album topped the Billboard 200 chart and the UK albums chart and it has gone to Number One in several other countries since its release last month.

So far it has racked up more than 145 million streams and 97,500 album sales, according to data shared in a press release.

It’s the Californian band’s best-selling album since their 2006 double LP  ‘Stadium Arcadium’ and their first since guitarist John Frusciante returned to the band after leaving following that particular record.

In a four-star review of the record, NME’s Ali Shutler wrote: “There’s a lot to ‘Unlimited Love’, both in scale and ambition. It’s at once familiar – without being boring – and fresh (but never at the expense of the band’s identity).”
