Whitney Houston's musical legacy lives on.

In the wake of her untimely passing Saturday, the legendary singer's Greatest Hits album has shot to No. 1 on several music charts.

The late Grammy winner's album not only topped the iTunes Chart Sunday morning, but it also was the top-selling album on Amazon.com's Best Sellers CD and MP3 charts, among others.

The album, which includes all-time faves like "Greatest Love of All," "You Give Good Love" and "Exhale" was originally released in July 2009.

And that wasn't the only way fans paid tribute to Houston via music sales.

Aside from Adele's Grammy-dominating 21 and Paul McCartney's brand-new Kisses on the Bottom, many of Houston's other releases, ranging from The Preacher's Wife: Original Soundtrack to Whitney filled up the Top 10 spots on Amazon's CD chart.
