It looks like David Bowie will be returning to a place he hasn't been in a while next week.
Billboard.com says the rock icon's new album The Next Day is on track to debut in the Billboard 200 top ten, which will mark Bowie's first entry in the chart's upper echelon since 1983's "Let's Dance" peaked at number four.
And The Next Day might also give Bowie the first number one album of his storied career. But the Thin White Duke will have to fend off Bon Jovi's new album, What About Now. Both sets are expected to sell around 90-thousand copies before the tracking week ends this Sunday. The new Billboard 200 will be revealed on Wednesday, March 20th.
The Next Day is Bowie's first new album since 2003's Reality. If it bows at either number one or two next week, it will be his highest charting record since "Station to Station" hit number three in 1976.
