Amy Winehouse’s “Lioness: Hidden Treasures”, an album that stands as a testament to Amy’s exceptional talent and has received overwhelming critical acclaim, has today entered the UK album chart at number 1.

Speaking about the number 1 success Amy’s mother Janis had this to say :

“It’s such amazing news that Amy’s album has gone to number 1, and just goes to show what she still means to people. It’s especially good for the foundation and knowing that every sale will go to help a deserving cause makes the news all the more special. I’m so proud of my daughter and so happy that she is still touching people. She’s forever in my heart” Janis Winehouse

The album was compiled by long-time musical partners Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson in close association with Amy’s family, management and record label Island Records, and proves a fitting tribute to the artist, the talent and the woman. “Lioness: Hidden Treasures” is Amy’s second number 1 album in 2011 following “Back To Black” which topped the UK charts for 3 weeks earlier this year.
