whitney houston breaks billboard records

If only she could be around to see this…

Whitney Houston has JUST became the first woman to have three of her albums in the Billboard 200 chart's top 10 at the same time!

The three albums that are currently topping the chart are:

- Whitney: The Greatest Hits (#2, 174,000 units sold)

- The Bodyguard soundtrack (#6, 47,000 units sold)

- Whitney Houston (#9, 30,000 units sold)

In total, Whitney's albums have sold 320,000 units this week, which is a 29% increase from last week's 247,000 albums sold!

Since her death, she's sold a total of 668,000 albums and 2.76 million tracks! WOW.

The previous artist to land three top 10 albums at once was Simon & Garfunkel, who accomplished the feat back in July 1968 with their albums Bookends (#1), The Graduate soundtrack (#2), and Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (#10).

We're glad that Whitney's memory lives on so strongly through her music. Her talent will forever be remembered.

    of course, she freaking died..the day when beyonce or mariah carey dies, same thing will happen



  2. 2

    Re: jsqtsa – Beyonce maybe, but not Carey. Carey just doesn't have that many memorable songs. They all blur together for me.



  3. 3

    If she were still around, her albums would not be on billbord.

    Dying: The Ultimate Comeback!

    Whatever happened with occupy wall street? It was all over this site and on the news?



  6. 6

    she's dead, why does it matter? we need to celebrate people while they're alive, not dead.

    Re: bohonk – realy? U think beyonce has more memorable songs than carey? Ha!!!



  8. 8

    Re: bohonk – ur sure about that? i mean, off the top of my head, Hero is pretty memorable. but i just can't think of any one of Beyonce's songs that could really stand out, Halo? Irreplaceable? Hmmm…

    Its kind of sad how only 174k gets rank number two. The feat done in 1968 would have sold WAYYY more copies. Thank you very much, internet.

    Re: jsqtsa – MARIAH WILL DIE AN OLD AGING PLASTIC SURGERY GEEZER. NO ONE WILL GIVE A FUCK THEN. IN FACT, NICK CAREY WILL DIE BEFORE MARIAH. DUDE IS HAVING HEALTH PROBLEMS ALREADY. YOU CAN BET ON IT…

    I HEAR NEXT WEEK SHE MIGHT HAVE 4 ALBUMS IN TOP 10…

    I never understood why people have to buy music once the singer dies. If I dont already have I am not really that interested in it. The best of Whitney's music came out almost 2 decades ago. Not sure why death renews interest. Maybe the younger generation just became more aware of her! Today if you want to hear here you can go on the internet and get it for free.

    I love love love Whitney but this is obviously because of her death. Whenever someone like this dies people remember how great they were and what talents they had. Everyone remembers her talents and songs and that is why everyone at once is buying her albums. I'm sure its also for nostalgic reasons as well. Either way though Whitneys death is most likely what did this so whether she lived to see i… most likely wouldn't be an option.

    Re: jsqtsa – I actually have to agree with Bo. Mariah definitely has way more songs. Beyonces are the ones that blur for me. I thinks it because Beyonces are more recent that you might think that. But even songs from her Glitter album were bigger than some of Beyonces and that says a lot.

    how amazing is to achieve that if… YOU ARE DEAD??? So sad we run and make them this successful after they're gone, where were all these people a week before she died? she was probably hungry for success… well, there you have it!
