David Bowie’s album “Blackstar” reached number 1 in the American album charts. It was his first number 1 album in the US, and the first posthumous number one album in the US since Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” soundtrack, which topped the chart in November 2009.

(He had managed to reach number 2 spot with his 2013 album, The Next Day.

Meanwhile, in the UK, 19 of his albums entered the UK album charts last week, after fans sought out his classic hits.)
