Amy Winehouse: Highest Charting British Female Artist Ever
The Brit siren's Back to Black breaks U.S. chart record.
While her gospel-tinged first single “Rehab” continues to wow critics and bloggers alike, R&B-infused vocalist Amy Winehouse has made U.S. chart history with Back to Black, her chatter amassing sophomore album which entered the Billboard Hot 200 chart at No. 7, crowning her as the highest debuting British female artist in the history of the U.S. albums chart. Winehouse’s Back to Black, produced by Mark Ronson (Jay-Z, Lily Allen, Robbie Williams) and Salaam Remi (Fugees, Joss Stone), also delivered her the No. 1 slot on the British charts and a Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist.
Catch Winehouse this summer when she performs April 27 at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA.
