Though the Whitney chart action subsided a little in the second week following her untimely death in Beverly Hills, there were still plenty of people willing to show their love by shelling out for a tune or an album. Here’s what happened this week;
After eight Whitney Houston tracks re-emerged in the top 100 in the week following her passing, things have got a little quieter this week, with singles ‘Saving All My Love For You’, ‘I’m Every Woman’ and ‘Didn’t We Almost Have It All’ all dropping out of the top 100 after placing at Nos.90, 95 and 96 respectively last week.
That leaves five Whitney tracks still in chart action this week – and here’s where you’ll find them (last week’s position in brackets);
#24 : I Will Always Love You (#08)
#36 : I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) (#25)
#68 : I Have Nothing (#47)
#85 : Greatest Love Of All (#56)
#94 : How Will I Know (#67)
Though her 1985 debut has dropped out of the albums chart this week, there’s still been plenty of love for Whitney’s various best-ofs elsewhere, with plenty of movement on the ARIA albums chart.
‘The Ultimate Collection’ had a nine place jump to No.3, with ‘The Essential’ following it into the top ten at No.7 (up 13 places on last week). Whitney’s ‘The Greatest Hits’ slides seven spots to No.10, meaning there are now three Whitney best-ofs placed inside the top 10.
And ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack, which re-entered last week at No.33, moved a little higher to No.28.
