In death, Whitney Houston again a top-seller

BY STEVE ROTHAUS, srothaus@MiamiHerald.com

Dolly Parton must be crying her way to the bank.

The late superstar Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You - Greatest Hits version is No. 1 MP3 download on iTunes.

As of 2 p.m. Tuesday, The Bodyguard theme (written by Parton) is followed on iTunes by Huston's I Wanna Dance With Somebody - Junior's Happy Handbag Mix (No. 9), Greatest Love of All (No. 10), I Wanna Dance With Somebody - original mix (No. 11), One Moment In Time (No. 17), How Will I Know (No. 21), The Star-Spangled Banner (No. 23), I Will Always Love You - The Bodyguard soundtrack (No. 26), Didn't We Almost Have It All (No. 28), Saving All My Love For You (No. 34), and so on.

The double-CD, Whitney: The Greatest Hits, is No. 2 on iTune's album charts. The Bodyguard soundtrack is No. 13, Whitney Houston is No. 18, Whitney is No. 22, The Preacher's Wife soundtrack is No. 26, I Look to You is No. 34, and so on.

At Amazon.com, four of Houston's singles and two of her albums are in the Top 10 downloads lists.

On CD, Houston is an even bigger seller: Seven of Amazon's Top 10 CDs sold are Whitney's. (Adele is still No. 1 with the Grammy-winning 21.)
