David Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’ Tops U.K. Official Albums Chart, Tied with Elvis Presley’s Record

David Bowie

For the third consecutive week, David Bowie has led the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with his 2016 release album, Blackstar.

Recently, Bowie has been dominating the 2016 album charts for the first quarter. With this distinctive feat he has accomplished, it seems like he has tied with Elvis Presley’s record for having the most entries in the chart.

Following his death, twelve of Bowie’s albums topped the charts this week, drawing similar chart performance of the King of Rock and Roll in the year 1977. The latest record album entitled Blackstar was released only a few days before the death of the star and has already made an impact into the charts with a combined sale of 345, 000.

In the Top 10 Albums of 2016 So Far, Adele comes first with her album 25, and Justin Bieber’s Purpose comes in third. Along in the Top 10 are two more of Bowie’s albums entitled Best of Bowie, which landed on the 4th spot, and Nothing Has Changed – The Very Best Of on the 10th spot.

More of his albums were recorded further down the charts list. Hunky Dory is at #22, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars at #24, and Aladdin Sane down at #38.

It has also been revealed that his final album made a whopping selling record of vinyl albums of the past year. Official Charts Company launched the vinyl chart last April 2015, and Bowie topped the list. See below for more:
