Following her moving tribute at last Sunday’s ‘BET Awards‘, this week has given Whitney Houston fans even more reason to smile.
This week, Billboard released their annual ‘Mid Year Chart’, tallying the highest selling LPs of the year thus far. A list, which sees Whitney come out on top yet again.
With 818,000 units sold this year, Houston is the highest selling act on the R&B/Hip Hop tally, surpassing Rap Queen Nicki Minaj‘s sophomore LP which came in at #2 with 557,000 copies sold in the US since April.
Set to move over 1 million copies this year, Whitney’s favorable spot is also likely to land her a spot on the top ten of Billboard’s Year End Chart, making the collection one of the highest selling LPs of the year.
This, after her daughter Bobbi Kristina began work on a Reality Television series, documenting her life since Houston’s passing in February of this year.
