Tony Bennett: Oldest Artist on Billboard's Hot 100
Legendary recording artist Tony Bennett reached a historic milestone this week as the 85-year-old singer became the oldest living artist on Billboard's Hot 100 charts.
According to Billboard.com, Bennett achieved the milestone thanks to his duet with Amy Winehouse, titled Body and Soul, reaching #87 on the list. The song, featured on his latest album, Duets II, sold 25,000 downloads in its first week.
This marks Bennett's return to the charts after a nearly 44 year hiatus. He also gains the distinct privilege as the only artist with the longest span of appearing on the chart, with his first dating back to August 4, 1958 (his song Young and Warm and Wonderful came in at #59).
