Amy Winehouse's 'Back to Black' Soars Back Onto Albums Chart
Amy Winehouse’s music lives on. Four days after her tragic death, the soul singer’s sophomore LP has re-entered the top 10 on the albums chart.
Winehouse’s Grammy-winning effort Back to Black makes its way back onto the Billboard 200 this week at No. 9 with 37,000 copies sold in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The week prior, it only moved 1,000 units.
Meanwhile, the late songstress’ 2004 debut Frank also climbs back onto the chart at No. 57 with 8,000. According to Billboard, there were more Winehouse albums purchased in the past week (55,000) than during the first six months of the year (44,000).
More than 95% of the album sales were comprised of downloads. Winehouse’s music is expected to see an even larger boost in sales next week after a full week’s report.
