Whitney Houston may be gone, but she certainly isn't forgotten by Canadian music fans.

The late singer's collection "The Essential Whitney Houston" re-entered the top 10 at No. 3, ringing up posthumous sales of 7,800 this week, according numbers crunched by Nielsen SoundScan.

She also placed high south of the border, occupying the No. 2 slot with 174,000 in sales in the U.S., according to Billboard.com.

Back here, it was the same old, same old at the top. Adele's "21" suffered from a post-Grammy hangover in sales (28,000 from 53,000 last week - a drop of 48%), but still remained firmly entrenched in the No. 1 spot in the land.

Leonard Cohen's "Old Ideas" was locked in at No. 2 but well back in sales figures (7,900), while the "2012 Grammy Nominees" compilation and Adele's "19" both moved down one to No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.

New York-based band fun.'s second album "Some Nights," powered by their hit single "We Are Young," debuted at No. 6, Tyga's "Careless World: Rise of the Last King" spent its first week at No. 7, and Paul McCartney's "Kisses on the Bottom" sank another three levels to No. 8.

The rest of the top ten comprised of LMFAO's "Sorry For Party Rocking" at No. 9, and "NOW! 19" at No. 10.

In the U.S., Adele was in first again, followed by fun. in third, Tyga in fourth, and "Now 41" in fifth.
