Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’ Back In The Charts

It’s a notable chart week for several factors, not the least of which is the boost — a whopping jump of 3,140% — Amy Winehouse’s 2007 LP Back To Black sees following the London soul singer’s death. Other interesting Billboard Top 200 highlights: Adele’s 21 returns to #1 for an 11th week, Kidz Bop 20 enters at #2, 3 Doors Down’s aptly debut at #3 with Time Of My Life and Beyonce’s 4 is at #4 in its fourth week. Winehouse tragically passed away at the young age of 27, with news breaking on Saturday. That means Back To Black‘s #9 re-entry on the Top 200 is all the more  impressive, given that Billboard‘s chart cut-off is Sunday evening. The publication noted yesterday that the Grammy-winning album sold 37,000 copies total last week, up from the 1,000 it moved the week prior.

Also re-entering the chart is Winehouse’s 2003 debut LP Frank, at #57 with 8,000 copies sold. Billboard points out that more than 95% of her albums sold last week were digital downloads.

Meanwhile, Adele’s 21 returns to the top of the chart for a 11th non-consecutive week, with an additional 77,000 copies sold.

Other new entries in the Top 10 this week: “I’m On One” mastermind DJ Khaled’s We The Best Forever at #5 (53,000) and 311’s Universal Pulse at #7 (46,000).
