In 2001, the duo released their breakthrough record White Blood Cells, entering the Billboard 200 at number 61. The album later earned platinum status after selling more than one million copies in the U.S. Two years later, the duo's follow-up album, Elephant, soared to number 6 on the Billboard 200 and earned a double platinum status.
After the dissolution of The White Stripes, Jack White pursued his solo career and released five critically acclaimed studio efforts. His debut album Blunderbuss, released in 2012, topped the charts in five countries, including the U.S., U.K., and Australia.
