Whitney Houston Vs. Madonna on Billboard Charts!

Whitney Houston is back on charts after her tragic death drama that shocked the world. "I Will Always Love You" re-enters the Hot 100 at #7, based on just one full day's worth of explosive sales and airplay following Houston's death on Saturday. It's remarkable for a single to return to the top 10 nearly two decades after it was first a hit, but it's not unprecedented. Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" returned to the top 10 in 1986 (when it was featured in the Rob Reiner movie of the same name), more than 25 years after it had been a top 10 hit.

Two other Houston hits also re-enter the Hot 100. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" re-opens at #35. "Greatest Love Of All" re-appears at #41. These were among 22 Houston hits that showed up this week on the top 200 Hot Digital Songs chart. (Michael Jackson's biggest hits did not return to the Hot 100 in the wake of his death. Chart policies change over time.)

"I Will Always Love You" sold 195K copies this week, which brings the song's digital sales total to 1,105,000. That's probably less than you assumed, but bear in mind that Houston hadn't been "hot" in years.
"I Will Always Love You," which was certified for sales of 4 million physical singles in January 1993, is Houston's first digital million-seller. Her next four biggest digital hits (not just this week, but counting their entire runs) are: "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" (583K), "Greatest Love Of All" (371K), "How Will I Know" (300K) and "I Have Nothing (287K).
