Home Uncategorized Cher Ties Barbra Streisand for Top 3 Album at Age 67

Cher has tied Barbra Streisand for a record in the music biz. At 67, Cher’s new album “Closer to the Truth” is ranked at number 3 for the week. That would make her the oldest female singer to score a Top 3 debut. However, Barbra Streisand did the same thing in 2009 with her “Love is the Reason” album. And she came in at number 1 on Billboard and number 2 on hitsdailydouble.com.

Together they will share this distinction. Of course, Streisand sold around 167,000 copies compared to Cher’s 61,000. But times have changed and albums just don’t sell like that anymore. Still, for Cher it’s a little more of a distinction because it’s a longer time since her last album. Streisand is pretty reliable with a new release every 18-24 months.

But of all the female artists of the 60s and 70s, they’re the winners and the biggest successes over all. Hats off to these two divas!

Tina Turner, the ball is now in your court!

  1. I’m not sure what the point of this article is? It’s full of errors and misinformation.
    How can Cher TIE Barbra Streisand at 67, when Cher’s album reached #3 and Streisand’s
    was #1? Unless at some point Streisand’s album “Love is the ANSWER’ dropped down to the #3 spot? Then I think the whole story and headline is ridiculous. Kudos to Cher for having an album in the top 5 at 67… love her. I just don’t get the point of the story. The headline implies Streisand’s album was also a #3 album… which it wasn’t. It was a #1. To suggest otherwise, is like me referring to Cher’s current album as a #11 album (since that’s where it sits on the charts this week).
