‘Blackstar’ on track to be David Bowie’s first-ever #1 LP in U.S.

David Bowie Blackstar

David Bowie has been on a lot of our minds since learning of his passing, which has in turn sparked even more interest in his just-released album, Blackstar. So much so that Billboard reports it’s on track to debut at Number One on the albums chart. That would make it Bowie’s first-ever U.S #1. He had come close a few times: 2013’s The Next Day hit #2, 1976’s Station to Station went to #3 and 1983’s Let’s Dance peaked at #4. If Blackstar does in fact debut at #1 it will be the first album to oust Adele’s 25 from the top spot since its release in November.

Bowie’s death has sparked interest in his entire catalog, as Entertainment Weekly reports that Spotify streaming for his music is up 2,700%, the most popular songs being “Heroes,” “Let’s Dance,” “Under Pressure,” “Blackstar” and “Tis a Pity She Was a Whore.”
