Tragic singer Amy Winehouse’s award-winning Back To Black has jumped to the top of the U.K. album chart, just eight days after her death.
The Rehab hitmaker, who was found dead at her London home last Saturday, took the number one spot, bumping soul sensation Adele’s 21 to second place for the first time in months.

Beyonce’s 4 came in at third, while Adele’s 19, at four, kept Winehouse’s debut album Frank at fifth.

In the U.K. singles chart, JLS scored their fifth chart-topper with She Makes Me Wanna, forcing boy band The Wanted to take a step down to number two with Glad You Came. DJ Fresh is at three with Louder.

In the wake of Winehouse’s passing, a number of her tunes have re-entered the Top 40 singles chart: Rehab (at eight), Tears Dry On Their Own (25), Love Is A Losing Game (33) and You Know I’m No Good (37).
