Amy Winehouse’s music climbs up the album charts

JLS make a play for singles chart top spot in midweeks

Amy Winehouse‘s 2006 album ‘Black To Black’ has climbed to Number Two in the Official UK Album Chart midweeks, following her death on Saturday (July 23), aged 27.

The record is now back in the Top Five, over five years since its original release. Adele‘s ’21’ is still at Number One in charts, though this may change by the time the chart is released on Sunday afternoon.

‘Back To Black’, the lead single from Winehouse‘s second album has also returned to the top end of the Official Singles Chart at Number Five, up from its previous placing at 81. Six more of the Camden-based singer’s songs look set to enter the Top 40.

Meanwhile, ‘She Makes Me Wanna’ by JLS feat Dev has pushed The Wanted‘s ‘Glad You Came’ off the Number One spot in the Official Singles Chart.

Amy Winehouse‘s music has also returned to the Top 10 in the Billboard 200 over in the US, with the ‘Back To Black’ album at Number Nine.
