David Bowie is on course to beat Bon Jovi to the top of the U.S. album charts and land his first number one.

Experts predict the rocker's comeback album The Next Day to sell in excess of 90,000 copies on its first week on release, which should be enough to edge out Bon Jovi's What About Now for the top spot next week (20Mar13).

Meanwhile, Bowie's new release looks set to storm the charts in style in his native Britain, where The Next Day is set to become the fastest-selling album of 2013.
