In the wake of David Bowie's passing, his album sales are soaring across digital platforms.

FOX's Michelle Pollino reports:

The death of David Bowie is sending shock waves across the music world and is pushing album sales up the charts...

On the iTunes albums chart, which constantly updates throughout the day. His latest album, a jazz record released Friday titled 'Blackstar' peaked at No. 1 on Monday and the music and cultural icon's 'Best of Bowie' was No. 2 pushing Adele's '25' to No. 3.

Billboard Magazine senior editor Alex Gale talks about Bowie's influence on music:

(Gale) "There's so few artists who have broken as much ground and innovated as much as David Bowie. I mean he's basically helped popularize so many genres all the way from Glam Rock to Electronica."

And two other Bowie albums reached the Top 10.
