Whitney Houston is no longer with us, but her music has found new life.
Following her death on February 11, Billboard reports that Houston's 2000 compilation album, "Whitney: The Greatest Hits," sold 64,000 in one day, jumping onto the Billboard 200 at No. 6. The week prior, that album sold just under 1,000 copies.
"The Greatest Hits" is just one of six Houston albums to appear on the Billboard 200, with her 1985 debut "Whitney Houston" coming in at No. 72, "The Bodyguard" soundtrack landing at No. 80, and her last studio effort, 2009's "I Look to You," coming in at No. 118.
The six albums collectively sold 101,000 units, with 91,000 of those being downloads.
Adele still holds the No. 1 spot with "21," however, this chart's sales week ended on February 12, and Billboard expects to see higher sales in the week following the legend's death.
