It was probably quite predictable really, but just like Elvis, John Lennon, Nirvana and Michael Jackson among others, Amy Winehouse’s albums and singles have sold phenomenally well since her sad death last weekend. ‘Back To Black‘ is this weeks UK number one album. It has also climbed to number 8 in the US Billboard album charts.Her first album ‘Frank’ is at number 5 in the UK. In fact with Adele at number 2 and 4 and Beyonce at number 3, the whole top 5 albums in the UK is ruled by women!

Amy also has 5 songs in the UK top 40 singles chart;

“Back To Black” – Number 8

Tears Dry On Their Own” – Number 27

“Rehab” – Number 29

Love Is A Losing Game” – Number 33

You Know I’m No Good” –  Number 37
