UK Charts: Amy Winehouse ‘Back To Black’ Resurrects At #1


    Adele has proven to be the breakthrough artist of 2011 but another female top-seller has returned for her crown. Amy Winehouse ‘Back To Black’ has been resurrected to claim the top spot on the UK Albums Chart, nabbing a 164th week on the ally.

    ‘Back’ leaps a stunning 58 spots on the lineup from #59 to #1. This jump was expected following the shocking death of the singer on July 23rd. Winehouse’s ‘Frank’ album also re-enters the lineup at #5, a new peak following its previous crowning at #13 in 2005.

    On the other hand, Adele’s ’21’ dips to #2, closely followed by her debut album, ’19’, at #4. Sandwiched between these release is Beyonce’s ‘4’ at #3, down only 1 spot from last week.

    The Official UK Singles Chart also included some interesting moves. JLS’ ‘She Makes Me Wanna (Ft. Dev)’ is now the group’s fifth #1 single from 7 releases since their 2009 debut.

      That was directed at ‘R&B’ btw.

    • Ugh

      This is great. They are both very talented. I still don’t get the hype that still surrounds Adele’s album. I have a feeling people are still buying because they want to say that they have a copy. yeah it’s a good album but it’s time to hang it up.
