After years of abusing drugs, then alcohol, Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on 23 July 2011. Her album Back to Black posthumously became the UK’s best-selling album of the 21st century, at that point. In 2012, Winehouse was ranked 26th on VH1?s 100 Greatest Women In Music. The BBC has called her “the pre-eminent vocal talent of her generation”.
