“Time won't change the meaning of one love. Ageless and ever evergreen.” Those lyrics from one of Barbra Streisand’s most famous songs seem to describe the feeling her audience has for her.
At age 72 -- with 32 top 10-charting albums since 1963, the first of which came out five years before U.S. astronauts landed on the moon -- Streisand’s new album, “Partners,” has landed in the No. 1 spot, according to Billboard magazine.
"Partners" is Streisand’s second duets album and features an all-male roster of guest performers, including Billy Joel, John Mayer, Stevie Wonder and even the late Elvis Presley. The album includes standards such as “Come Rain or Shine” with John Mayer, “New York State of Mind” with Billy Joel, and “Love Me Tender” with Presley.
Streisand has broken some records with "Partners." Released Sept. 16, it's her 10th No. 1 hit album and has already sold more than 196,000 copies. Streisand has had the largest sales week for a female artist so far this year. She's also the first artist to have a No. 1 album in each of the past six decades.
As much as the audience seems to love “Babs,” as she is affectionately nicknamed, it seems she has returned the love. Over the years, she’s had three farewell tours, in 2000, 2006 and 2012.
She just can’t seem to quit us.
