Duets II is an album by Tony Bennett, released on September 20, 2011. It was released in conjunction with Bennett's 85th birthday and is a sequel to his previous duet album, Duets: An American Classic. One of the songs, "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", however, was released on iTunes as a free song several weeks before the album's release.
The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking his first #1 album to date, selling 179,000 copies. He also became the oldest living artist to debut at #1 on Billboard 200. It was a milestone for Bennett in that it was not only his first #1 album but also his first album to debut at #1, both at the same time. Duets II recently achieved Platinum sales status in Canada as certified by Music Canada. The album won the Grammy Award for the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album amongst 2011 releases at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards held in February 2012.
Bennett also won another 2011 Grammy at the same ceremony for his duet with Amy Winehouse for their version of the standard "Body and Soul." The duo won the Grammy for Best Pop Duo or Group Performance. "Body and Soul" was one of Amy's favorite songs, and the track, recorded in March 2011, would become Winehouse's final recording before her death just a few months later, in July of that year.  These two 2011 Grammy Awards were his 16th and 17th to date in his career, including a Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented to him in 2001. "Body and Soul" was Bennett's first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in nearly 45 years. 
In addition, Duets II awarded arranger Jorge Calandrelli with a Grammy for the Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) for Bennett's duet with Queen Latifah on the track "Who Can I Turn To?" (also known, as listed by the track name in Duets II, by its longer name, "Who Can I Turn To [When Nobody Needs Me]?") The Anthony Newley-Leslie Bricusse standard was featured in the 1964 London West End and Broadway classic stage musical The Roar of the Greasepaint, the Smell of the Crowd. Bennett recorded the song late that year and hit the Billboard Top 40  with the single.
Bennett and duet partner Carrie Underwood performed "It Had to Be You," the duet they sing on Duets II, during the same Grammy Awards ceremony and then also became Grammy Award presenters.
