Legendary jazz performer and fifteen-time Grammy Award winner Tony Bennett thinks Lady Gaga, who is set to appear on his upcoming duets album, will become as big as Elvis Presley.

“I never met a more talented person in my life,” the 85-year-old singer told Billboard. “I think she’s going to become as big as Elvis Presley.”

Lady Gaga joined Bennett for a duet of the jazz standard “The Lady Is a Tramp.” Their rendition of the song will appear as the first track on Duets II, which will be released on September 20th to celebrate the singer’s 85th birthday.

The list of artists on Duets II includes Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, Michael Buble, Norah Jones, Alejandro Sanz, John Mayer, Queen Latifah, Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow, Andrea Bocelli and many others. The much-anticipated album is available for pre-order on iTunes now.
