50 Years Of Cher! INTERVIEW: Cher Talks To Billboard About Her 50 Years On The Chart
Singing Legend Cher spoke to Billboard about her July 1965 debut on the Hot 100, letting the publication know that she'll be heading to England around October to record a new song:
In total, she’s earned 33 solo hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including four No. 1s. Further, she’s tallied 29 albums on the Billboard 200 chart.
The entertainer's most recent album, 2013’s Closer to the Truth, marked her highest-charting solo effort ever, when it debuted and peaked at No. 3. Incredibly, she’s also earned a No. 1 single on a Billboard chart in each of the last six decades.
There’s divas, and then there’s Cher.
Her iconic Billboard chart career started 50 years ago, when the then-19-year-old's single “All I Really Want to Do” arrived on the Billboard Hot 100 dated July 3, 1965. A little over a month later, as one half of Sonny & Cher, she was at the top of the chart with “I Got You Babe.” Ever since, it’s been a blur of smash singles, blockbuster films, hit TV shows and, of course, those fabulous Bob Mackie-designed gowns.
