Sales of Winehouse's music surge after her death

(CNN) - Singer Amy Winehouse's untimely death has sparked a downloading avalanche of her music.

She sold more albums since her passing on Saturday than she did this entire year.

Nielsen SoundScan reports that Winehouse's 2007 breakthrough album "Back to Black," which contains the hit single "Rehab", sold 37,000 copies.

The album hadn't sold that well since March 2008, right after she won five Grammy awards.

Radio stations also played more of Winehouse's songs this week.
