Whitney Houston Record Sales Expected to Surge
As is often the case when a music legend dies, the Official Charts Co. in the United Kingdom expects singer Whitney Houston to soar to the top of their charts this week.
The company expects Houston's singles and albums to make a major rise on the U.K. charts over the next week. The same can be expected on the U.S. Billboard album charts, according to Idolator.
The same effect has been seen most recently with acts like Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson.
In the wake of her tragic death on Saturday, Houston's Greatest Hits album is projected to sell an additional 50,000 units, which would earn her a top 20 spot on the Billboard 200. The collection of hits is the top-selling album on iTunes, and her smash single "I Will Always Love You" sits atop the Top Songs section.
Many of us begin listening more to music from an artist who has just passed away. Have you found yourself listening to more of Houston's music or purchasing some of her records?
