The late Amy Winehouse's breakthrough album "Back to Black," as well as a number of her singles, are staging a return to the Billboard charts this week.
The new Billboard 200 albums chart -- which will be revealed on Wednesday (July 27) and reflects the sales tracking week that ended on Sunday (24) night -- should see "Back to Black" re-enter the top 20, with as many as 20,000 - 25,000 copies sold in the U.S. That figure mostly reflects sales from over the weekend, after news of her death on Saturday (July 23), reached fans.
In the week previous, the set moved just a little over 1,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"Back to Black" reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in March 2008, almost a year after it debuted, spending 78 total weeks on the chart. It hit its No. 2 peak in the wake of that year's Grammy Awards show, zooming 24-2 after the singer performed via satellite from London and took home five trophies.
"Back" has sold 2.3 million to-date, according to SoundScan. "Frank" is her only other Billboard 200 entry, having debuted and peaked at No. 61 in December 2007. Its sales stand at 307,000.
The charts will continue to feel the impact of her passing next week -- once a full week's worth of sales, radio airplay and streaming data have been registered.
