That Leona reign just won’t let up!
After debuting at #3 in the UK back in October, the Pop piece has gone on to exceed expectations in Europe’s largest music market, Germany.
Good news below!
Retailing at €9.99, the album soared to the top of iTunes Germany chart, while faring just as well in Austria- scoring the album a new peak position of #1.
The best news to come from the LP’s chart run in some time, its unexpected success has seen it outsell some of last year’s biggest releases in the markets, with Emeli Sande‘s ‘Our Version Of Events‘ perched at #23 (Germany) and Rihanna‘s ‘Unapologetic’ sat at #94 (Austria).
Set for US release this Spring, here’s hoping the ‘Heart’s European glory is the incentive her camp needs to push the project even further than they already have.
This, by ensuring any potential singles are given the radio push they deserve and that any new numbers that may help it match sales of ‘Spirit‘ in the US are recorded and placed in time for its launch.
For, the way we see it, Leona is only one beautiful single away from restoring interest in what really is remarkable album, but just hasn’t caught on as fast as its predecessors did.
