.
On Wednesday David Bowie's New Album Headed To No. 1 was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) David Bowie is on track to top the charts in the UK and US as sales of his latest album soar in the wake of his death. Just two days after the release of (Blackstar), on his 69th birthday, the singer died on Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer, which he kept secret from everybody but his family and closest friends. Tributes poured in after the news of his death broke.

Sales of (Blackstar) reached 43,000 in the UK in the 24 hours after his death was confirmed, with the numbers still rising rapidly. It currently tops the midweek UK Top 40 Album Chart as well as the iTunes chart and sales of much of Bowie's back catalogue have risen sharply, the Guardian reports.

And in America, Bowie is on track for his first ever No.1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Billboard predicts (Blackstar) could sell as many as 130,000 copies in the US by the time the chart positions are announced. Read more - here.
