Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett’s ‘Cheek to Cheek’ is the No. 1 Album in the Country
Billboard reports that Cheek to Cheek — which sold 131,000 copies — narrowly edged out a new album from Kenny Chesney (his The Big Revival movied 130,000 copies to land at No. 2). Last week’s No. 1 album, Barbara Streisand’s Partners, comes in at No. 3 with 127,000 sold.
Madonna will beat his record when she finally releases new music. (These are the jokes!)
While 131,000 copies doesn’t sound like a huge number (especially compared to some of Gaga’s previous first-week numbers), when you consider it is is an album of jazz standards, it is actually quite impressive. For comparison, Britney Spears’ Britney Jean sold 107,000 copies its first week on shelves, so 131,000 is certainly nothing to scoff att.
