I’ve profiled Cher here before (during my “Chanteuses” series). Her solo career had started while she and husband Sonny were still married, and really took off after they separated. During the early Seventies, she had four hits reach the top ten on Billboard‘s Hot 100, spending a total of 26 weeks there, with three of them reaching #1 during that period.
“Gypsys, Tramps, and Thieves” reached the Top 10 in October 1971, spending 9 weeks there, peaking at #1 on November 6.
“Half-Breed” reached the Top 10 in September 1973, spending 8 weeks there and reaching #1 on October 6.
