NEW YORK (AP) - 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.
