On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith discuss the latest top 10 album -- and possible Grammy front-runner -- from Gaga & Tony.
As Billboard's 2014 review of Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett's Cheek to Cheek album noted, "After years of running from normalcy as fast as her stiletto-clad feet would carry her, Lady Gaga is pulling a Rod Stewart and digging into the Great American Songbook." As it turns out, a little normalcy -- alongside legendary crooner Bennett -- was exactly the left turn the pop star needed seven years ago.
And that creative partnership continues to bear fruit all these years later, as Gaga and Bennett just scored a second top 10 album on the Billboard 200, with Love for Sale debuting at No. 8 on this week's chart, as well as topping Billboard's Jazz Albums and Traditional Jazz Albums charts. On Traditional Jazz Albums, its Bennett’s 15th No. 1, breaking him out of a tie with Harry Connick Jr. for the most No. 1s in the 54-year history of the chart.
