French charts published on Friday, january 15th 2016, show that David Bowie enters both major tallies, the Albums chart and the Downloads chart at number 1.
This is the first time ever the late British icon lands at number 1 on any French chart, despite having built a solid following in France throughout his long career.
Blackstar leads the albums sales this week with 67k units sold.
While Space Oddity rockets to number 1, Life On Mars? And Heroes enter at 3 and 9, respectively.
For the record, here were the best Bowie singles rankings in France, until this very week:
Let’s dance, number 3, june 1983
China Girl, number 10, october 1983
Ashes To Ashes, number 8, december 1980
All three rankings go back to an era where French singles chart was compiled on a monthly basis.
