Just a week after his death, iconic rocker David Bowie’s final album Blackstar debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, his first ever No. 1 album. Bowie reached a major video milestone, as well.

Vevo announced that following the music icon's passing, David Bowie's catalog drew 51M views on January 11th, the most views for any artist in one day in Vevo history. The previous record holder for same day views was Adele, whose catalog garnered 36M views when “Hello" premiered on October 23, 2015.

Vevo has over 60 videos spanning multiple decades of David Bowie's career with early hits including “Space Oddity" and “The Jean Genie," all the way to his most recent releases “Lazarus" and “Blackstar." Bowie's catalog saw a 5198% increase in views on January 11th over the average of the prior 7 days, with “Lazarus" being the most-watched video with 11.1M views.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
