Singer Tony Bennett has scored his first No. 1 album at the age of 85.
The veteran's "Duets II" release has rocketed to the top of the Billboard 200 chart, thanks in part to much-publicized collaborations with Lady Gaga and the late Amy Winehouse, making Bennett the oldest living act to reach the top spot -- beating Bob Dylan's two-year-old record.
Just last week, Bennett became the oldest living artist to score a Billboard Hot 100 hit when his "Body & Soul" duet with Winehouse debuted at 87. His album shot to No. 1 with 179,000 sales.
The 14-time Grammy winner's previous high on the U.S. album chart came in 2006, when his first "Duets: compilation debuted at No. 3.
Awesome Tony! You are a national treasure and the coolest cat in town!
Thanks for the ride!
