This Web site recently observed that Tony Bennett‘s latest CD is doing very well in America. But this isn’t the only good news for the crooner.

This week, he hit the top spot on the Canadian album charts.

Bennett’s Duets/An American Classic, which includes guest vocals from Elton, Bono and many other notables, debuted at No. 1 on sales of over 21,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

The album marks the first time Bennett has gotten so high on the country’s charts — his previous peak was 2001’s Playin’ With My Friends, which made No. 36.

Bennett’s debut forced Diana Krall‘s From This Moment On (17,000) from #1 down to the second spot.
