David Bowie Tops The Billboard Chart For The First Time In 20 Years
After two decades, iconic singer David Bowie has managed to top the UK charts with his latest release "The Next Day". Selling 94,000 copies within the first week, the new album has easily outsold the second-placed Bon Jovi and 37,000 copies their new record, "What About Now", has managed to sell. As his ninth No. 1 record and the first one since 1993's "Black Tie White Noise", the new record took two years to make, with Bowie himself and his long-time producer Tony Visconti working in complete secrecy. Bowie's first chart-topper, "Aladdin Sane", saw it's release way back in 1973. In the singles category, Justin Timberlake brought double victory to RCA Records by topping the chart for the third consecutive week. As far as Bowie goes, his first single off "The Next Day", titled "Where Are We Now", managed to crack the top 10 upon it's release in January. Billboard reports that Bowie and Bon Jovi are also battling for the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 chart with Jovi already beating him in Australia with 9,910 copies sold. However, the No. 2 position and 8,245 albums sold still remain Bowie's best result in Australia in the past 30 years. Bowie's comeback was recently praised by former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher who has stated that his "new album proves reunions are s--t". The release itself was recently streamed in full via iTunes.
