Whitney Houston is a triple threat in the Top 10 of Billboard‘s Top 200 this week, as she has three LPs in the upper tier of the album chart at the same time — and she’s the first woman to ever achieve such a feat. With Whitney – The Greatest Hits at #2, The Bodyguard soundtrack at #6 and Whitney Houston at #9, Billboard notes that this marks the first time since the week of July 6, 1968, when Simon & Garfunkel took up three Top 10 positions, that any act has pulled a similar stunt. Since her death on Saturday, February 11, 668,000 Whitney Houston albums and 2.76 million of her tracks have been sold. Which ones have you downloaded in that time?
