Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’ returns to Number One

Late singer's 2003 debut LP 'Frank' also enters Top 10

Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back To Black’ has returned to the top of the albums chart tonight (July 31), eight days after the singer passed away.

The LP first hit the top spot shortly after its release in 2006 and has been joined in the Top 10 by the singer’s 2003 debut ‘Frank’, which achieves it best-ever chart placing at Number 5. The double pack which incorporates both albums is at Number 10.

Winehouse tracks also dominate the singles chart, with ‘Back To Black’ (Number 8), ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’ (Number 27), ‘Rehab’ (Number 29), ‘Love Is A Losing Game’ (Number 33) and ‘You Know I’m No Good’ (Number 37) all returning to the Top 40.


There were no other new entries in the albums chart Top 40, although there’s a new Number One in the singles chart – JLS scored their fifth chart-topper with ‘She Makes Me Wanna’, a collaboration with Dev.

New entries came from Maverick Sabre at Number 16 with ‘Let Me Go’ and Six D‘s ‘Best Damn Night’ at Number 34.
