Barbra Streisand On Track For Record 10th Number One Album With ‘Partners’
Bown down to the one true queen of the Billboard 200. Barbra Streisand is on track to land a record-breaking 10th number one LP next week with duets collection Partners. That would make her the first artist to score chart-toppers in a brain-busting six consecutive decades. It would also extend her lead over Madonna as the female artist with the most number one albums.
The pop icon has done a brilliant job of marketing this album. Not only did she team up with a fine selection of fellow superstars (Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney for starters), Babs also revamped her image by embracing social media — her Instagram account is life — and upping her promo game. Partners is predicted to sell 150,000 copies in its first week of sale.
