Streisand’s eleventh number-one album, “Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway” features ten duets with big name stars — including “Any Moment Now” with Hugh Jackman. The album also features hits with some unlikely partners, including Melissa McCarthy, Alec Baldwin and Seth MacFarland.

The album puts Streisand in a tie with New Jersey’s Bruce Springsteen for the third most number-one albums.

The Beatles are in the lead at number one with 19 number-one albums. Brooklyn rapper Jay-Z comes in second with 13 albums hitting the top of the charts.

The release of “Encore” comes 52 years after Streisand’s first number-one album “People,” released in 1964.
