Jazz Hands Everyone: Lady Gaga And Tony Bennett Debuted At #1
Perhaps you were expecting another result? Monstrous! Of course Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett‘s collaborative album of jazz standards, Cheek To Cheek, will debut at the top of the Billboard 200 album charts this week. The perfect pairing easily took the #1 spot, giving Gaga her third #1 debut in a row and Bennett his second chart-topper. It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t… #1 The delightful duo moved 131,000 copies of the album, according to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan. It’s business as usual for Gaga, 28, but the debut makes Bennett, 88, the oldest living artist to earn a #1 album, beating the record he set in 2011 with his first #1 debut for Duets II. (The news was not as rosy on the iTunes album chart, where the pair debuted down at #5.)
Bennaga (just made that up), barely squeaked out the win over country singer Kenny Chensey, whose Big Revival was a hair behind at #2 thanks to sales of just under 130,000. Coming in at #4 were British drone rockers Alt-J, whose second album, This Is All Yours, moved 68,000 units. Other debuts this week include vocal group Pentatonix, who came in at #5 with PTX. Vol. III (46,000). (Source)
