Despite huge media coverage, David Bowie was only number six in the singles chart yesterday. "Where Are We Now?" was held at bay by Will.i.am, Taylor Swift and X Factor's James Arthur, who claimed the top three places.
There had been confusion on whether the song would be included by the Official Charts Company, after it was offered as a free download to anyone who ordered Bowie's forthcoming album. In the end, paid-for downloads were included.
