Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s jazzy new duets album, Cheek To Cheek, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It’s the second No. 1 for Bennett and the third for Gaga.

The standards album, released Sept. 23 on Streamline/Interscope/RPM/Columbia Records, sold 131,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 28, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It also hits No. 1 on both the Jazz Albums and Traditional Jazz Albums charts.

88-year old Bennett is the oldest living act to earn a No. 1 album, beating a record he set himself back in 2011. That year, a then 85-year old Bennett scored his first No. 1 album with Duets II (which included a collaboration with Gaga on “The Lady Is a Tramp”).

Gaga previously led the list with ARTPOP, less than a year ago, and Born This Way, in 2011.

critics on born this way: what a cheap move exploiting the lgbtq community, is all this activism just a gimmick?

critics on artpop: what a cheap move making an edm album, is all this “performance art” just a gimmick?

critics on cheek to cheek: what a cheap move collaborating with a jazz legend, is all this jazz music and pure talent just a gimmick?

Lady Gaga is touched by fans at artRAVE Denmark

The Danish Lady Gaga fanbase had arranged to hold op signs reading “Thank you” as she sat down to play Born This Way. At first she only sees a few, but then she looks over her shoulder, sees hundreds of them and it is as if she realizes all these people, this entire arena is there to see HER. 

Incredibly touching!
