David Bowie Tops UK Chart For Fourth Week

(hennemusic) David Bowie continues to dominate UK music sales as the late rocker tops the album charts for a fourth straight week. The Official Charts Company reports the singer's "Blackstar" - which held the top spot for three weeks - has been replaced at No.1 with his 2002 collection "Best Of Bowie."

With the switch, Bowie becomes the first act to knock themselves off the top of the Official Albums Chart in nearly six years following a similar move by Michael Jackson following his death in 2009.

The achievement also means Bowie is the first artist since 2011 to occupy the top two positions on the chart; Adele last did it with "21" and "19." Bowie's strong album sales continue a month after his January 10 death from cancer; he currently has seven entries in the Top 40, down from 12 last week - which tied Elvis Presley's record for the same feat.
