Projections Show David Bowie With Three of Top Six Albums Next Week

Projections from Hits Daily Double show that David Bowie will have the first number 1 album of his career in the U.S. next week along with two more albums in the top six.

Bowie died on Sunday from what has been reported as liver cancer and has had a huge resurgence in interest in his catalog along with his brand new album Blackstar. The new set was released this past Friday and Hits Daily Double's early week prediction has it selling 155,000 to 165,000 albums during its first week along with 160,000 to 175,000 when streaming is included.

If the numbers hold, Bowie will unseat Adele from the top spot which she has held for seven weeks. Her numbers show 120,000 to 125,000 in sales and 140,000 to 150,000 with streaming.

Third on their list is Bowie's The Best of Bowie at 40,000 to 45,000 in sales although its 75,000 to 80,000 with streaming will push it to number four behind Justin Bieber's Purpose.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust is also doing well, projected at number six in sales with 15,000 to 17,000 although its final position will be lower due to low streaming numbers.

Rounding out Hits Daily Double's top fifteen is the new Original Soundtrack to Straight Outta Compton with 9,000 to 11,000 in sales (10,000 to 12,000 with streaming).

Final projections will be out on Friday while the charts will be published next Tuesday.
