Winehouse Album Becomes Century’s Bestseller

Amy Winehouse is still hitting music milestones after her untimely death last month.

Britain’s Official Charts Company says Winehouse’s Grammy-award winning “Back to Black” has become the best-selling album in theU.K.in the 21st century.

The company, which tracks music sales in theU.K., said Wednesday that “Back to Black” overtook James Blunt’s 2005 debut album to claim the title this week.

Winehouse’s second album had jumped to the No. 1 spot on the charts shortly after the soul singer was found dead in herLondontown house on July 23. An initial post-mortem failed to determine cause of death, and Winehouse’s family said Tuesday that toxicology tests showed she had no illegal drugs in her system when she died.

An inquest into Winehouse’s death begins in October.
