Subject: Amy Winehouse's Lioness tops UK album chart

Written By: Philip Eno on 12/11/11 at 1:08 pm

Amy Winehouse's posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, has topped the UK album chart.

The record, which features 12 original tracks and covers, was compiled by long-time musical partners Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson.

Proceeds from the album will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

A coroner ruled the singer, who was found dead in her London flat on 23 July, died as a result of drinking too much alcohol.

A verdict of misadventure was recorded after the inquest heard the singer had 416mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.

The first single from Winehouse's album, Our Day Will Come, also entered the singles chart at 29.

Elsewhere in the album chart, Michael Buble's Christmas held firm at number two, with last year's X Factor runner-up Rebecca Ferguson entering the chart at three with her debut, Heaven.

Last week's number one, Olly Murs' In Case You Didn't Know, fell to number four.

Meanwhile in the singles chart, Murs' track Dance With Me Tonight climbed one place to secure the number one spot, displacing the X Factor Finalists 2011 with their cover of the Rose Royce song Wishing On A Star.

Lloyd's collaboration with Andre 3000 and Lil Wayne was the highest new entry with Dedication To My Ex at three.

While 5 O'Clock by T-Pain ft Wiz Khalifa and Lily Allen was the only other new entry at six.

The chart also saw a surge in sales of classic Christmas singles as the festive period kicked in.

Mariah Carey's 1994 hit track All I Want For Christmas was the highest placing at 12, with The Pogues and Kirsty McColl's Fairytale of New York close behind at 15.

Also charting in the top 40 was Wham's Last Christmas at 26, Wizzard's I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday at 28, Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade at 33 and Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas at 34.
