Tony Bennett tops U.S. Billboard

Tony Bennett’s career has spanned over 60 years and his “Duets II” album marks his first number one hit album on the U.S. Billboard chart. At 85 years old, Bennett has also stolen the “oldest living performer to top the U.S. Billboard chart,” which was held by Bob Dylan from 2009 until now. Dylan was 67 at the time.

Bennett's “Duets II” album features collaborations with Lady Gaga and the late Amy Winehouse, who died on July 29th of this year. The 14-time Grammy Award winner's previous highest position on the chart came in 2006, when his first “Duets” album debuted and peaked at number 3.
