Amy Winehouse's last album has re-entered the Billboard 200 chart top 10.

The late singer's 2007 LP 'Back to Black' has taken the number nine slot on the US following her shock death on Saturday, while her debut record 'Frank' also returned to the chart, placing at number 57.

According to Billboard, 37,000 copies of 'Back to Black' and 8,000 copies of 'Frank' - which was first released in 2003 - have been sold between the news of her passing being released and the ending of the chart tally on Monday.

Over 95 per cent of the sales were from digital downloads, and it is expected that the chart placings for both records will be higher next week.

Individually, Amy's songs accounted for 110,000 digital downloads in the US, with 'Rehab' proving to be the most popular choice, with 38,000 sold, entering the Digital Songs chart at number 46, the only one of her tracks to do so.

The full Billboard 200 chart rundown is released tomorrow.
