Adele’s Run at Number 1 Ends as David Bowie’s Blackstar, 3 Older Albums Take Over iTunes


It took David Bowie’s death to end Adele’s long run at number 1 on the iTunes charts.

The new number 1 album is Bowie’s new “Blackstar” album, released last Friday. Three older Bowie albums are also in the top 10– The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, Best of Bowie, and Hunky Dory.

Nine more Bowie albums are in the iTunes top 30 right now. A fitting tribute, but what a loss.
