Barbra Streisand Set for Historic No. 1 Album


Recommended Posts

'Partners' could make her the first artist with No. 1 albums in each of the past six decades.

Barbra Streisand may collect her 10th No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart next week with the arrival of her new all-star duets album, Partners.

The Columbia Records set, which was released on Sept. 16, may sell over 150,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 21, according to industry forecasters. That starting sum should be enough to fend off all other titles on next week's chart -- the top 10 of which will be revealed on Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Partners features Streisand duetting with an all-male hit parade of singers, including Stevie WonderMichael BubleBlake SheltonBilly Joel andLionel Richie.

If Partners hits No. 1, it will make Streisand the first artist with No. 1s in each of the past six decades ('60s through '10s), and it would extend her lead as the female artist with the most No. 1 albums.

To promote the new album, Streisand made a well-publicized visit to NBC's The Tonight Show on Monday, where she was the only guest for the evening. She performed a medley of songs with host Jimmy Fallon, chatted and then sang a solo number at the end of the show. It was her first proper appearance on a late-night talk show since 1963, when she was last on The Tonight Show.

On Tuesday, she performed on ABC's Good Morning America and is scheduled to appear on ABC's The View on Thursday.

The second-highest new entry on next week's Billboard 200 chart will likely beChris Brown's next studio effort, X. It may sell around 130,000 copies and come in at No. 2.



Not a big fan of her music the way I am of Aretha, Diana, Cher & Tina, but we very much know who's queen of the Golden Legends Of Shady Pines
