That article is wrong about Houston's song returning to the charts in the top 10 - Billboard doesn't allow it. I don't know the exact reasoning but if that were the case then half off MJ's catalog of hits would of been in the top 10 after his passing. ^
AFAIK, Billboard changed its rules, and NOW, I think any album or song can enter the official charts, thats why Bollbiard doesnt have its pop catalog chart, and yes, before no MJs album was allowed in official charts, only in pop catalog chart.
Now, any album can enter the charts based only on record sales!
There was one week after MJ passing Michael had all top 10 with his albums in pop catalog chart! Records sales would have enter half of them top 5 in official album chart
They changed their rules for the Billboard 200 album chart, not their Hot 100 singles chart. Unfortunately, Whitney cannot and will not be re-charting any songs in the top 10 no matter how much she sells.
I thought the same as you, but apparently the change is for the hot 100 too - whitney is at no 7.
Edit- there's a thread on the subject.
Do any of you guys know where I can find any Live concert audio of Whitney?
The toxicology report is in.
The Los Angeles County coroner's office has determined that Whitney Houston's official cause of death is: "drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use."
The singer was found in the bathtub of her Beverly Hilton Hotel room on Feb. 11, hours before a pre-Grammy party. She was 48.
The coroner's office also said the manner of death was an "accident."
However, the toxicology report adds that "Cocaine and metabolites were identified and were contributory to the death. Marijuana, Alprazolam (Xanax), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified but did not contribute to the death."
An autopsy was conducted the day after she died. Capt. John Kades of the Los Angeles County coroner's office said at the time there was no indications of foul play and no obvious signs of trauma on Houston's body. Prescription pill bottles were found in her room, but the number of pills were "not in alarming amounts," said officials.
Dionne Warwick said earlier this month she suspected her cousin died of a "heart attack."
Was hoping that drugs wouldn't have been a contributor, but it was inevitable
I wonder if they will ever known what happened. how did she drown? fall asleep?
The trailer for Sparkle is out now, there's a little clip of Whitney singing in it, and she sounds great
