Barbra Streisand Sits at the Top of U.S. Billboard Chart
Paramore is unable to stop her, and not even Mariah Carey. Barbra Streisand is back on the chart!
The 67-year-old diva is back with her new single, Love Is the Answer, and immediately crowned her as the pop chart queen after being released yesterday. It silenced both Paramore’s Brand New Eyes and Mariah’s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, and it also scored her ninth No. 1 album on the U.S. pop chart.
Not only that, according to Columbia Records, Streisand’s album -which is her first studio recording in four years- sold 180,000 copies during the week ending October 4. Higher than Paramore’s 175,000 and Mariah’s 168,000 copies.
With this new record, Streisand extended her lead as the female act with the most No. 1 releases on the Billboard 200, and also became the first artist to top the chart in five consecutive decades.
Talked about this happy news, the I Finally Found Someone singer said in a statement, “You’d think that getting the news that you’ve been Number One in five consecutive decades would make you feel old, but this makes me feel young.”
Well, congratulations Barbra Streisand!
