Tony Bennett’s most recent collaboration with Lady Gaga, Love For Sale, has earned him his fifth Guinness World Record title. The second collaboration for the duo since Cheek to Cheek in 2014, and the 61st and final album for Bennett, 95, who revealed he has been battling Alzheimer’s disease since 2016, Love For Sale landed the legendary singer with the world record as the oldest musician to release a collection of new material.

An album of duets, Love For Sale pays homage to the late composer Cole Porter with newer renditions by Gaga and Bennett of 12 of the composer’s classics, including “It’s De-Lovely,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” and “Just One of Those Things.” Upon its release, the album earned Bennett his fourth world record as the oldest person to reach number one on U.S. album charts for a newly recorded album.
