In days following her death, Whitney Houston's greatest hits album is projected to sell 50,000 units, which would earn her at least a Top 20 spot on the Billboard 200.
Pitted against Adele's juggernaut "21" and Van Halen's "A Different Kind of Truth" in its first week, "Whitney: The Greatest Hits" could tonight outsell both titles before Nielsen SoundScan's tracking closes for the week.
At the time of this writing, the collection is the top-selling album on iTunes, and Whitney's rendition of "I Will Always Love You" sits atop the digital store's Top Songs, with other hits "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," "The Greatest Love of All" and "One Moment In Time," coming at No. 8, No. 12 and No. 16, respectively.
Her songs currently appear 42 times on iTunes Top 200. "The Bodyguard" soundtrack, as well as her self-titled 1985 debut album have also re-entered iTunes Top 20 albums list.
