The songs were biggest at adult alternative radio, peaking at Nos. 7 and 2, respectively, on Billboard's Triple A airplay chart in 2007. "Rehab" also rose to No. 13 on Pop Songs and No. 14 on Adult Pop Songs.

In a statement issued Saturday, Recording Academy president Neil Portnow said: "Five-time Grammy winner Amy Winehouse was a dynamic performer and musician who seamlessly blended rock, jazz, pop, and soul and created a sound all her own. Her rich, soulful and unique voice reflected her honest songwriting and earned her a devoted fan following, critical acclaim, and the genuine respect and admiration of her musical peers. She will forever be remembered for her immense talent, and her music will live on for generations to come. Our deepest sympathies go out to her family, friends, and fans during this difficult time."
