Amy Winehouse: best-seller of the century, to be honoured at VMAs

Amy Winehouse will go down in the history books in more ways than one.

While speculation surrounding the singer’s death last month continues, her second album, ‘Back to Black’ has become the best-selling album of the 21st-century in the UK.

According to Britain’s Official Chart Company, the Grammy-award winning album, which includes the late singer’s most famous single ‘Rehab,’ has stolen the crown from James Blunt’s ‘Back to Bedlam.’

Sales of Amy’s music skyrocketed after her death last month.

News of Amy’s achievement was revealed as MTV announced they will be holding tribute for the singer at this year’s MTV VMA awards on Sunday.

The tribute will include never-before-seen footage of Amy whilst recording at London’s famous Abbey Road studios earlier this year. She will be honoured by singer Tony Bennett, who recorded with her during that time.

“It was a thrill to record with Amy…,” said Bennett.

“…when you listen to the recording…it is a testament to her artistic brilliance as one of the most honest musicians I have ever known.”
