David Bowie's Blackstar Remains At No. 1 In The UK

(hennemusic) David Bowie's "Blackstar" has topped the charts for a third straight week as the late singer continues to dominate UK music sales in 2016. Bowie also has another 6 albums on the charts - with 18 in the UK Top 100.

The Official Charts Company reports the project is one of five Bowie albums in the Top 10, including 2002's "Best Of Bowie" at No. 3, 2014's "Nothing Has Changed" at No. 5, 1971's "Hunky Dory" climbs three places to No. 9, and 1972's "The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars" jumps nine spots to No. 10.

The feat means Bowie is the first act to score five albums in the Top 10 since Michael Jackson managed six in 2009 after his passing. With seven more records in the Top 40 bringing his total to 12, the rocker ties Elvis Presley's UK chart record for simultaneous Top 40 entries, which the King achieved following his death in 1977.
