Tony Bennett's new album Duets II has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard albums chart, with 179,000 units sold in the first week.

The album has remained in the top 5 on iTunes' album chart in the US and other countries since its release. Digital albums represented 20% of overall sales, the highest for any Bennett album to-date.

Danny Bennett, Tony's son and manager stated, "It's an unprecedented and historical event that an artist at the age of 85 has topped the charts. He's remained at the top of his game without having ever compromised his integrity and standard of excellence."

"The number one success of Duets II pays tribute to the enduring genius of Tony Bennett," said Steve Barnett, Chairman, Columbia Records. "It is a true testament to Tony's artistry that he continues to top the charts while at the same time reaching a broader fan base and breaking new ground."
