Amy Winehouse posthumously receives BRIT Billion Award

Amy Winehouse has posthumously received a BRIT Billion Award after reaching one billion streams in the UK.

The late ‘Rehab’ hitmaker’s parents, Mitch and Janis, accepted the Award, presented by BPI, amid a renewed interest in the music legend upon the release of the movie ‘Back to Black’.

2006’s ‘Back to Black’ is Winehouse’s most-streamed song in the UK, with over 150 million streams. Certified 2x Platinum, the song peaked at Number 8 in the Official Singles Chart, and is followed closely by ‘Valerie’, Winehouse and Mark Ronson’s cover of The Zutons’ single, with over 135 million streams in the UK. ‘Tears Dry on Their Own’, ‘Rehab’, ‘You Know I’m No Good’, and ‘Love Is a Losing Game’ from the much-lauded album of the same name have in excess of 50 million streams each.

Her parents said: “We of course wish that Amy was here today accepting this award in person, but it’s amazing that she is still winning awards for her incredible talent and achievements. It’s wonderful that her music is being discovered by new audiences of young people who love it just as much as her contemporaries. We are so proud of Amy. Thank you.”

The one-of-a-kind singer tragically died in 2011 at the age of 27 from alcohol poisoning and released two seminal studio albums: 2003’s ‘Frank’ and 2006’s ‘Back to Black’.

Recently, Winehouse’s former bandmate Dale Davis admitted he doesn’t think there’s “enough material” for another posthumous album release.

In December 2011, ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures’ came out, comprised of unreleased songs, covers and demos chosen by Mark Ronson, Salaam Remi and Winehouse’s family. The tracklist included a version of jazz standard ‘Body and Soul’ with Tony Bennett.

Bassist Dale is doubtful that there are any other hidden gems lurking in a vault somewhere, and admits he would be very surprised if another album came out.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, the musician – who worked as a musical consultant on the Winehouse biopic ‘Back to Black’, which stars Marisa Abela as the Grammy-winning singer – said: “I don’t think there’s necessarily enough material. It’s quite a big thing to release something in connection with Amy because you’ve got so many people involved. There’s not that much out there, I know people said ‘we’re not going to release anymore’.

“I’ll leave that to the record companies and the estate.”
