Sorry, Adele.

More David Bowie More David Bowie

David Bowie's Blackstar debuted at #1 just days after the rock icon tragically passed away and for the second week in a row, the posthumous record is set to maintain top spot on the ARIA Albums Chart. 

The 25th and final album from Bowie peaked at #1 in several countries as well as Australia upon its release including the US, UK, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Scotland and more.

While Blackstar is likely to claim top spot again, fellow UK star Adele's acclaimed 25 is set to hold the #2 position again after it was dethroned last week following seven straight weeks at #1.

The only album debut to pose a threat in the top five this week is US electro-pop outfit Panic! At The Disco's fifth studio album Death Of A Bachelor, their first offering in three years.
