In just one day, Winehouse's newest album soared to the top of the U.K. charts according to the Hollywood Reporter. Though the official album charts for this week for not yet been released, Island records confirms that Winehouse's last effort indeed captured the top spot.
"My heart is sad but bursting with pride," Amy's father tweeted after hearing the good news. All proceeds from the Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi-produced record will go directly to the new Winehouse charity which will benefit children in need. Mitch Winehouse recently revealed to London's The Evening Standard that listening to his daughter's final works was quite difficult. "On one hand it was very difficult for us to listen to the album, on the other hand we had to do it to ensure the quality was as it should be."
'Lioness: Hidden Treasures' is currently available via Island records.
