Barbra Streisand becomes the first act to take multiple new albums into the Billboard 200's top 10 in every decade since the '60s. Her latest set, the archival package Release Me, debuts at No. 7 with 44,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Her closest competition for top 10 domination through the decades is the Rolling Stones. The veteran band is the only other act to have scored at least two top 10s in the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and '00s. The group could nab its first new top 10 of the '10s with its greatest-hits set GRRR!, due Nov. 13. (Not counted toward the Stones' '10s tally is the band's 2011 reissue of its 1972 No. 1 Exile on Main St., which re-entered at No. 2 last year.)

Streisand already owned the record of having at least one top 10 set in every decade from the '60s onward-she managed the feat a year ago when What Matters Most reached No. 4.

Release Me is also the diva's 32nd top 10 set, extending her lead as the woman with the most top 10 albums in history.
