The much-anticipated release of "Guilty Pleasures" comes 25 years after the pair's first multi-platinum album, "Guilty," made pop music history as a worldwide chart-topping smash which helped define the emerging Adult Contemporary pop music genre following its release in 1980.
One of the four top-selling albums -- alongside "Greatest Hits Vol.2," "A Christmas Album," and "Memories" -- in Ms. Streisand's extraordinary catalog, the original "Guilty" became the artist's fifth album to reach the #1 spot on Billboard's Pop Albums chart.
The album generated three hit singles: "Woman In Love" (#1 Adult Contemporary, #1 Pop) and the duets with Barry Gibb, "Guilty" (#5 Adult Contemporary, #3 Pop) and "What Kind of Fool" (#1 Adult Contemporary, #10 Pop). The album's title track, "Guilty," took home the coveted Grammy Award for "Best Pop Vocal Performance, Duo or Group."
Shortly after its release, the original "Guilty" album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America with Platinum status following within two months. "Guilty" has gone on to be certified 5x Platinum, with sales exceeding five million copies in the U.S. and 12 million worldwide. With 49 Gold, 30 Platinum and 13 Multi-Platinum albums to her credit, Barbra Streisand is the music industry's #1 best-selling female artist and the only female on the RIAA's Top 10 list of artists.
