Amy Winehouse - Amy Winehouse Album Debuts At Number One

Amy Winehouse has returned to the U.K. pop charts from beyond the grave - her posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures has debuted at number one.
The project, featuring new tracks produced by her longtime collaborators Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson, tops the U.K. albums chart in its first week of release, while the first single from the disc, Our Day Will Come, enters the singles countdown at 29. All proceeds from the venture will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity set up in her honour to aid vulnerable young people following her death from too much alcohol consumption in July (11).
Michael Buble's Christmas release sits at two, while former The X Factor runner-up, Rebecca Ferguson, is new at three with Heaven.
In the U.K. singles chart, British singer Olly Murs takes first place with Dance With Me Tonight, ahead of The X Factor Finalists 2011, featuring stars from the latest season of the TV talent show. Their rendition of Wishing On A Star falls one place to two.
R&B singer Lloyd is a new entry at three with Dedication to My Ex, featuring rappers Andre 3000 and Lil Wayne.
