From Entertainment Weekly:
Since Amy Winehouse died on Saturday, fans have been honoring the British singer by playing her Grammy-winning neo-soul watershed Back to Black, giving the album a posthumous spike in sales.
Within hours of her death, Black climbed all the way to No. 1 on the iTunes charts in the U.S. and the U.K., and stayed there until Monday. (Today, on the U.S. side, Eric Church tops the chart, with Winehouse holding the No. 2 spot.)
Billboard also predicted that, due to sales from over the weekend, Black will re-enter the top 20 on its Billboard 200 albums chart—which comes out on Wednesday and reflects the sales tracking week that ended on Sunday night—with as many as 20,000 – 25,000 copies sold in the U.S. That’s a big jump from the week before Winehouse passed, when Black moved just a little over 1,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
