NEW YORK:- David Bowie’s final album soared toward the top of the charts Tuesday after the music legend’s death from cancer stunned the world, with the details still shrouded in mystery two days on. ‘Blackstar,’ released on Bowie’s 69th birthday Friday, was on course to be the first number-one album in the United States for the quintessentially avant-garde artist who lived his last two decades in New York but enjoyed greater mainstream success in his native Britain. Billboard, which will publish the benchmark US chart this weekend, said that ‘Blackstar’ was expected to easily outsell ballad singer Adele’s blockbuster ‘25,’ which has spent seven weeks at number one.–AFP
