Amy Winehouse’s record label Universal has admitted that the constant media attention around the singer and her problems has helped with record sales.

The singer, who is currently in rehab battling her drug addictions, has shifted a massive 3.4million copies of ‘Back To Black’, and in the UK chalked up the highest selling record of 2007.

Quoted by various online sources, Universal Music International’s Hassan Choudry thinks that the sales figure does have a correlation to the endless column inches Ms Winehouse receives.

He said: "There's no getting away from the fact all the coverage has kept Amy Winehouse's profile at the highest level.

"Everyone (at the label) is extremely happy with the amount of records we've sold and a lot of it has been down to some amazing marketing opportunities in the market when the artist wasn't available."
