Amy Winehouse's 2006 album Back to Black has topped the UK charts eight days after she was found dead at her Camden home.
Her first album, Frank, came in at number five on the countdown, while five more of her singles made the top 40, following a surge in sales.
Back to Black's title track was her highest placed single at number eight in the official chart.
She also made an impact over in the States, with her Grammy-winning album featuring at number nine on the Billboard 200.
HMV's Gennaro Castaldo told the BBC that Winehouse's record label had to produce more stock to meet demand:
"In terms of the album sales, there was a real surge last weekend, both through downloads and people buying the CD.
"But a lot of stores then ran out of stock and they've been waiting for more to arrive which it did around Thursday."
Winehouse follows in the footsteps of artists including Michael Jackson and John Lennon, who experienced a surge in popularity and achieved number one records shortly after their death.
Amy died on 23 July aged 27. An inquest into her death was opened and adjourned until 26 October.
Her father Mitch is planning to open a foundation in her memory.
