It looks like Whitney Houston fans are paying tribute to her and celebrating her legacy in a big way. Billboard reports that Houston’s YouTube and VEVO views are up a whopping 4,523 percent last week.

 

The chart Bible reports that Houston moved from No. 12 to No. 2 on their Social Chart this week, going from 868,000 plays to 40.2 million plays in one week. The Social Chart ranks not only YouTube and VEVO views, but also Facebook activity, Twitter followers, MySpace plays and iLike action.

The surge follows Houston’s star-studded funeral and private burial last week.

The fallen star has been a steady presence on the charts since her untimely death two weeks ago. Immediately following her passing, Houston’s ‘Greatest Hits’ album shot to No. 1 on the iTunes chart almost instantly. Houston’s singles are also rose up the iTunes digital charts. ‘I Will Always Love You’ hit the top spot on the singles chart, while  ’I Wanna Dance With Somebody,’ ‘How Will I Know,’ ‘Greatest Love of All,’ ‘One Moment in Time,’ ‘I Have Nothing,’ ‘Where Do Broken Hearts Go,’ ‘Didn’t We Almost Have It All’ and ‘I’m Every Woman’ are all on the top 100 iTunes chart.

The accomplishment is a testament to how many listeners loved Houston’s powerhouse pipes — and how much the world misses her.
