Winehouse takes over the Top 40
Monday 01 August 2011
Amy Winehouse's Grammy award-winning album Back To Black has returned to the top of the charts in the wake of her death. Five of her singles made the Top 40.
Back To Black held off Adele's album 21 to become the week's best-seller while her debut album Frank came in at No 5 and the box set of both albums was at No 10. Back To Black reached No 1 in 2006, while Frank went to No 13 in 2005.
On the singles charts, "Back to Black" was at No 8, "Tears Dry On Their Own" at 27, "Rehab" at 29, "Love is a Losing Game" at 33 and "You Know I'm No Good" at 37.
Gennaro Castaldo, of HMV, said: "We saw such a surge in demand for Amy's albums soon after her death was announced that we pretty much sold out and had to re-order more copies."
