Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’ Hits No. 1 in the UK
Brits eagerly gobbled up Amy Winehouse's music in the days following her death, sending the singer's 'Back to Black' to the No. 1 spot on the U.K. album chart.
Gennaro Castaldo of entertainment retailer HMV tells the site: "Obviously quite a few people have been downloading the album, but many more seem to have wanted it on CD, perhaps by way of feeling a more tangible connection with Amy and her music -- which is something we tend to see when any great artist sadly dies."
On the U.K. singles chart, the title track shoots to a new high position of No. 8, while 'Tears Dry on Their Own' takes No. 27, 'Rehab' holds down No. 29, 'Love Is a Losing Game' is No. 33 and 'You Know I'm No Good' is No. 37.
Last week, 'Back to Black' re-entered on the U.S. chart at No. 9, as American fans remembered the late singer's music by purchasing 37,000 copies of the record.
