Billboard Magazine has announced that pop music icon Barry Manilow has scored his sixth consecutive decade of top 40-charting albums as Night Songs II becomes his 27th top 40 album on the Billboard Top Album Chart.
Night Songs II made its debuts at No. 3 and held its top ten position on the Billboard Current Pop Albums Chart between Justin Bieber and Harry Styles.
The Billboard chart position for an album of just piano and vocals is simply unprecedented. “It’s very intimate,” said Manilow. “It’s just me playing the piano and singing some of the greatest songs ever written, by some of the greatest composers ever to put pen to paper.”
Manilow first visited the top 40 album chart on January 11, 1975 with Barry Manilow II and since 2002, Manilow has more than a dozen top 40 albums.
Manilow has planned a series of concerts in the UK and is currently is in residency in Las Vegas at the Westgate Resort and Casino.
