Tony Bennett Is Oldest Artist To Have No. 1 Album On Billboard 200
For Tony Bennett, anything goes, like breaking records. The 88-year-old music staple's new duets album with Lady Gaga, Cheek to Cheek, has claimed the no. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, helping him break his own record of being the oldest living artist to top the chart. When Bennett was 85 in 2011, he shattered Bob Dylan's record with his star-studded Duets II project. Bennett and Gaga's jazz album, which sold 131,000 copies its debut week, becomes Gaga's third chart-topper. Cheek to Cheek is named after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers' 1935 song, which Bennett previously recorded.
