Adele Reclaims No. 1 On Billboard 200 After a Two-Week Break

While Bowie wouldn't retain the top spot the following week, Panic! At The Disco would score its first number one album with Death of a Bachelor. Both weeks, 25 had to settle for runner-up as opposed to “ruling the roost.” Not this week friends – no sir!

After a two-week break – call it a vacation – Adele returns to a familiar, fitting spot at number one. This week marks the eight nonconsecutive weeks in the penthouse for the British powerhouse....

Before the late, great Natalie Cole was even laid to rest, the announcement came down that David Bowie had died after an ongoing battle with cancer.

While the rock world was mourning the loss of Bowie, the great British actor Alan Rickman also lost a battle with cancer, and then Eagles frontman and prolific songwriter (and TV writer) Glenn Frey passed, shaking the entertainment industry to its core.

While each will be remembered for their contributions to music and film, t's almost impossible to mention David Bowie without thinking about the many artists that he has influenced over the ye...

Anderson Paak's Latest Album 'Malibu' Shows He’s Clearly An Arti
