Amy’s back to top

Soul star AMY WINEHOUSE's multiple Grammy nods have boosted sales of her sophomore album BACK TO BLACK - winning her a place in the UK's Top Ten best-selling albums of the 21st century.

The LP has sold more than 2.4 million copies in Winehouse's native country since its October 2006 release, with over 318,000 of those having been sold in the last 10 weeks.

Back To Black replaces Norah Jones' Come Away With Me in the countdown, but James Blunt's Back To Bedlam is still the most popular album in the UK - it's sold in excess of 3.1 million copies to date since hitting store shelves in 2004.

Winehouse scooped five Grammy Awards including prizes for Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year at the prestigious 10 February (08) ceremony.
