NEW YORK - Death has landed Amy Winehouse back on the charts.
The British singer's "Back to Black" album will re-enter the Billboard album chart at No. 9, with 37,000 albums sold in the United States in the past week. Those figures come from Nielsen SoundScan data released late Tuesday. Her debut album "Frank" sold 7,000 copies. All but a fraction of those sales were digital downloads.
"Back to Black" hadn't sold that many copies in three years.
There were also 111,000 digital tracks of Winehouse's music sold over the past week — a 2,000 percent increase. The most downloaded Winehouse song? Her most famous one, "Rehab."
Winehouse died of unknown causes at her London home on Saturday. She was 27, and had struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for years.
