David Bowie's music has had a huge spike in sales and downloads since his death on Sunday (January 10), so much so that his new album, Blackstar, is on course to knock Adele from the top spot and debut at number one on the Billboard album chart with sales in the 130,000 range. If it does, it will be his first number one.
Bowie has been in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 seven times. His best showing up to now was his 2013 release, The Next Day, which debuted at number two. His other Top 10 albums include Let's Dance (#4 in 1983), Changes One Bowie (#10 in 1976), Station to Station (#3 in 1976), Young Americans (#9 in 1975), David Live (#8 in 1974) and Diamond Dogs (#5 in 1974).
Bowie is also doing well on the iTunes album chart. Blackstar hit the number one spot, followed by Best of Bowie at two.
