Amy Winehouse's album Back to Black is now officially the UK's bestselling album of the 21st century, beating off previous record holder James Blunt with his album Back To Bedlam.

Back to Black was Winehouse's second studio album, released on Island Records it featured hits such as "Rehab", "You Know I'm No Good", "Back to Black", "Tears Dry on Their Own" and "Love Is a Losing Game".

Originally released on the 4th October 2006, her album shot to the top spot in the week following her death, and has since sold more than 3.26 million copies in the UK alone. In 2009 her album was the UK's 18th bestselling album of the 21st century.

Winehouse was found dead in her London home on the 23rd of July 2011 at just 27 years old.

Jazz musician Tony Bennett who recorded a song with Amy Winehouse earlier this year will pay tribute to her at the MTV Video Music Awards 2011, with their single being released later this year.

Bennett said "It was a thrill to record with Amy Winehouse and when you listen to the recording of Body And Soul', it is a testament to her artistic genius and her brilliance as one of the most honest musicians I have ever known".
