David Bowie’s passing has led to grieving from fans and fellow artists across the world. His peers have shared their memories, he’s become #1 trending topic on Twitter, and he now has four of the top ten album spots on the iTunes constantly updated sales chart (according to Billboard) as well as the #2 album on Amazon.
His most recent release Blackstar jumped to #1 on iTunes, while the Best of Bowie compilation, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, and Hunky Dory are also in the top ten. Blackstar is trailing Adele‘s Hello for the top spot on Amazon. The album is currently #11 on Google Play but the marketplace doesn’t update at the same speed as iTunes so that number may change as well.
With influences including contemporary artists like Kendrick Lamar and Death Grips, the seven track album disregarded genre norms and continued Bowie’s journey of musical exploration. Blackstar was previously projected to hit #1 on the U.K. album chart, now the album will be likely to top both U.S. and U.K. charts. Stream it below, or help Bowie top the charts on iTunes or Amazon.
