Barry Manilow Scores 6th Top 10 Album in 10 Years

8:27 PM
Barry Manilow's winning streak continues, as his new album 15 Minutes -- his first collection of all-original material in a decade -- debuts at #7 on the Billboard album chart. It's Barry's 13th top 10 album overall, but the most impressive feat is that it's his sixth top 10 album in the past 10 years. In addition, the album's first single "Bring on Tomorrow" has become Barry's 47th Top 40 hit.

Elsewhere on the chart, America's Got Talent pre-teen opera singer Jackie Evancho debuts at #2 with her album Dream. It's the second #2 album for the 11-year-old -- her EP O Holy Night reached that same spot last year.

Meanwhile, Father's Day gave a boost to Journey's Greatest Hits album, which has jumped from #101 to #18 on a 374% sales increase. That was thanks to an iTunes promotion that priced the album at $6.99. The album hasn't been in the top 20 since 1989.
