The new single by Cher is quickly turning into yet another big hit for the gay icon who had her first number one record back in 1965.

Woman’s World has reached the number one spot on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs Chart. This marks the eighth time Cher has topped this particular Billboard chart.

The first time was with Believe in 1998 followed the next year with two singles from the Believe album: Strong Enough and All or Nothing.

In 2002, she topped the dance chart again with Song for the Lonely and A Different Kind of Love Song then again the next year with When The Money’s Gone.

Then after a eight-year hiatus from recording, Cher’s single You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me from her movie Burlesque brought her back to the top of the chart in 2012.

Her latest success is the continuation of a legendary career that dates back 48 years ago to her first number one single, I Got You Babe, with then-husband Sonny Bono.

While she and Bono had other hits such as The Beat Goes On, most of her recording successes have been solo and have been spread across six different decades.

They include Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down), Half Breed, Gypsies Tramps and Thieves, Dark Lady, Take Me Home, I Found Someone, If I Could Turn Back Time, Just Like Jesse James, among many others.

Woman’s World is the lead single off of Cher’s forthcoming album Closer to the Truth to be released 24 September. It’s her first full album of new material in 11 years,

‘I actually did a couple of different things in this album,’ she told USA Today last month. ‘I ventured into places I haven’t gone and I really enjoyed that," she said. "I kind of took some chances in this album and then when they turned out to be good, I was really happy.’
