David Bowie's 'Blackstar' is at the centre of a posthumous sales rush.
The singer passed away earlier this week, following a very private battle with cancer. 'Blackstar' was released on his birthday (January 8th) and it's a beautiful, daring accomplishment.
The album is now at the centre of a posthumous sales rush, with fans wrestling over his final artistic statement.
Curiously, 'Blackstar' could now become the singer's first number one album in the United States. David Bowie enjoyed enormous Stateside success in his career, grabbing six Top Ten albums: 'Let’s Dance', 'ChangesOneBowie', 'Station To Station', 'Young Americans', 'David Live' and 'Diamond Dogs'.
Achieving that feted number one slot in the week of his death with one of his finest - and most difficult - albums in decades would be a more than fitting achievement.
Good luck, Dave, wherever you are!
