article imageDavid Bowie posthumously scores No. 1 album with 'Blackstar'

By Markos Papadatos     Jan 17, 2016 in Music
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Bowie posthumously scored his first chart-topping album with his latest release "Blackstar."
As a result, Bowie debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 all-genre charts, dethroning Adele's 25.
Bowie passed away on Jan. 10 after a battle with cancer, two days following the release of the album, which came out on ISO/Columbia Records. It went on to sell 181,000 units in America alone, for the week ending Jan. 14, as indicated by Nielsen Music. Most impressive about this number is that 174,000 of these copies were in pure album sales, thus marking his greatest sales week, since Nielsen began in 1991.
His music video for "Lazarus" shattered records on YouTube and VEVO, and it may be seen below.
