What he couldn’t do when he was alive, he has managed to achieve in death.

David Bowie’s seven-song album, Blackstar, which was released on his 69th birthday will attain the coveted No. 1 album on US charts. The album which released just two days before his death, is already skyrocketing to the top spot on the Billboard charts and is likely to edge out Adele’s 25 this week, Billboard said.

 

Although, the final results won’t be out until Sunday, sales for Bowie’s album shot through the roof after he lost his 18-month battle with liver cancer on Sunday. All 25 of his albums also moved into iTunes’ top 100 on Tuesday. His Best of Bowie dislodged Adele from the top spot. Bowie’s Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and Hunky Dory also made it into the top five.Three tunes of Bowie snagged spots on iTunes’ top 10 US songs, too  Space Oddity (3), Changes (8) and Let’s Dance (9).

Bowie’s death shocked the world, as he battled secretly for months against cancer for the second time in recent years.
