Yet to score a ‘hit single’ in the USA, her debut album Heaven still managed to race into the Billboard 200 listings at No. 23.
OK, so that’s not exactly a chart position to have on your gravestone, but when you consider that Natasha Bedingfield – allegedly now bigger in the US than in the UK – saw her last album go in at No. 103, you can’t really complain.
Elsewhere One Direction’s Up All Night has returned to the Top 5 as their gloabal domination continues (the performance of their 2nd album will be fascinating, won’t it?).
Heaven has now peaked at No. 3 in the UK, No.16 in Australia, No.15 in Germany, No.9 in Ireland, No.22 in New Zealand and No.7 in that all-important, make-or-break Swiss market.
Cher Lloyd is also making progress – her US debut single ‘Want U Back’ has made it to No. 38 on the Pop Songs chart and No. 21 on the Heatseekers (?) chart.
