Tony Bennett’s, Lady Gaga’s ‘Cheek To Cheek’ Debuts at No. 1 On Billboard 200 [Video]
The album also hit No. 1 on the jazz and traditional album charts. Released Sept. 23 on Streamline/Columbia/Interscope Records, "Cheek To Cheek" features classic jazz standards sung by Gaga and Bennett in vocal duets and solo performances.
With the album's release, Bennett broke his own record, set in 2011 when "Duets II" debuted at No. 1 when he was 85 years old.
Now 88 years old, Bennett is the oldest artist in music industry history to have an album on the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. It is the second time in Bennett's career he had an album debut at No. 1 in both Billboard's pop and jazz album charts
"Cheek To Cheek" marks Gaga's third consecutive No. 1 album released in just over three years.
Two tracks released prior to the album, Cole Porter's classic "Anything Goes" and the Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields standard "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" both debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's digital jazz charts.
Recorded in New York, the record took more than a year to finish.
