ll David Bowie’s last album be his first to top the Billboard 200?

That’s looking likely, according to the trade magazine, which said that Bowie’s “Blackstar” is headed for a No. 1 debut on its flagship album chart.

Released Friday, just two days before Bowie died of cancer at age 69, “Blackstar” may sell 130,000 copies by the end of its first week on sale, Billboard reported. Its chart reflects both sales and streaming activity, the latter of which should bring the album’s weekly number high enough to replace Adele’s smash “25” in the top spot. “25” just logged its seventh week at No. 1.

Bowie previously got as high as No. 2 on the Billboard 200, with his 2013 album “The Next Day.”
