Bowie Notches UK's Fastest-Selling Album Of 2013
David Bowie's first studio album in 10 years, The Next Day, debuted at No. 1 on the UK chart with 94,000 units sold, marking the country's fastest-selling artist album of 2013 and Bowie's first album to reach No. 1 in the UK in 20 years, according to the Official Charts Company. Bon Jovi's What About Now debuted at No. 2 on the chart with 37,000 units sold.


Redfoo Trades Beats For Tennis Balls
