At 64 years old, Cher is still riding high on the Billboard charts, including her latest No. 1, "Haven't Seen the Last of Me" from 'Burlesque.'

A rarity in the music business -- or any entertainment field for that matter -- Cher is poised to make history next week when she tops the Billboard Dance Club Song chart with the Diane Warren-penned "Haven't Seen the Last of Me," marking the sixth decade in which the iconic singer and actress holds a No. 1 hit. The Golden Globe-nominated song comes from the 2010 film Burlesque, which stars Cher and Christina Aguilera. 

Looking back at Cher's presence on the Billboard charts, she had three dance hits in the ‘00's, including "Song For the Lonely,” "A Different Kind of Love Song" and "When The Money's Gone.”         
 
In the '90's, Cher topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and dance chart with "Believe," one of the best-selling singles of all-time and among the first to use (or some would say, abuse) auto-tune. She had two more  No. 1 club hits that decade with "Strong Enough" and "All or Nothing."     
 
In the '80's, Cher again had two No.1 A/C hits with "If I Could Turn Back Time" (also written by Diane Warren) and "After All,” a duet with Peter Cetera.   
 
In the '70's, Cher had three hits top the Hot 100 Pop charts: "Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves," "Half Breed" and "Dark Lady," as well as the No.1 Sonny and Cher song, "All I Ever Need Is You.”   
 
And, of course, who could forget the cultural landmark that was "I Got You Babe," Sonny and Cher's breakout duet which topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1965.
