Billboard reports that David Bowie's final album, released two days before his death, is likely to take over the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 from Adele's 25. Blackstar is predicted to sell an equivalent of 130,000 copies. If it does overtake Adele, this would mark Bowie's first No. 1 album in the U.S.

According to Billboard, the beloved singer's back catalog also experienced an impressive bump: nine Bowie albums are in the top 40 this week, and 13 of his singles charted on the Hot 100.
