Adele’s ‘21’ returns to No. 1 on Billboard 200, Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’ reenters the top 10

Winehouse’s music has skyrocketed toward the top of the charts following her tragic death last Saturday
Adele at the 2011 Brit Awards held at the O2 Arena on February 15 2011 in London.

Adele’s second studio effort, 21, has reclaimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, extending her non-consecutive run atop the chart to 11 weeks.

The “Rolling in the Deep” singer’s run at the top is the longest since Taylor Swift’s second studio album, Fearless, spent 11 weeks at No. 1 in late 2007 and early 2008, according to Billboard.

Meanwhile, the late Amy Winehouse, who tragically died last Saturday of unknown causes at her London home, is experiencing posthumous chart success.

Winehouse’s Grammy Award-winning 2006 album, Back to Black, ascended into the top 10 on the Billboard 200, coming in at No. 9 with 37,000 sales.

Two of her other releases, 2004’s Frank and 2008’s Back to Black: B-Sides EP, came in at No. 57 and No. 152, respectively.

Kidz Bop 20 entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 with 69,000 sales, while 3 Doors Down’s Time of My Life debuted at No. 3 with 60,000. Beyoncé’s 4 and DJ Khaled’s We the Best Forever round out the top five.

LMFAO retained the No. 1 spot on the Digital Songs chart, as “Party Rock Anthem” generated 209,000 downloads. Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” and Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” rose to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. Hot Chelle Rae’s “Tonight Tonight” and Bad Meets Evil’s “Lighters” made sizable leaps into the top five.
