On the heels of Record Store Day, Official Charts released their vinyl sales figures for the year 2016 so far, and Bowie owns not just the top spot but three other spots in the top 15 as well. The top spot goes to Bowie’s 2016 release Blackstar, which Official Charts says has already doubled the sales of 2015’s top selling vinyl, Adele’s 25.

In addition, Bowie has six of the top 20 spots in vinyl single sales, including the No. 1 spot.
