Leona Lewis' album number one in the US

Leona Lewis SpiritLeona Lewis really is a sensation. Not content with being the first female to score a US number one single since Kim Wilde 21 years ago, the X Factor winner has also nabbed the top of the US album charts with her debut disc Spirit. The album sold over 200,000 copies on its first week of release in the States, with the former number one Troubadour by George Gait selling a paltry 59,000 copies in comparison. Talk about blowing the competition away.

This new feat from the former receptionist sees her become the first British solo star to earn the Billboard top spot since Rod Stewart did so in 2006. Fancy another dazzling Leona statistic? How’s about that the album has shifted over 2.5 million copies internationally in the last six months. Congrats to Leona and her team for insuring some serious worldwide success for a young British starlet and to the X Factor for producing someone we can be proud of. Not much pressure for last season’s winner Leon Jackson, eh?
