Chart Check: Leona’s ‘Glassheart’ Soars In Europe

Published: Friday 18th Jan 2013 by David

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.

      Leona released her new album Glassheart in Germany today and it was immediately no1 on Itunes so think before you write 🙂
      also number one in Austria. She’s more popular in Europe than in the UK. And Germany is bigger market than the UK so it’s very positive news.

    this chick ship sale ages ago…she’s pretty much irrelevant at this point.

  4. Lax January 18, 2013

    She is a very talented artist, and i hope she does well
    @Grape thanks for posting on Leona I was thinking of
    her for some reason!

  5. RoyalNavy January 18, 2013

    That’s nice. I thought she flopped.

  6. F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ h***) January 18, 2013

    This girl is so talented and gorgeous, she deserves to win.
    The reason she’s not is because I have not seen any promotion from her at all. I forgot she even had a new album out.
    All this talent and beauty is being wasted.

  7. MT January 18, 2013

    Excited for her to come to the US with this album. SHE is the vocal bible of this generation and sooooooooooo underrated. Leona deserves legend status for her voice

    • Marvin January 18, 2013

      You need to check your singers if you think she’s the vocal bible of this century

      • Well b**** January 18, 2013

      Get that d*** out of your ass and start appreciating good music, f**.

  9. Sleazy January 18, 2013

    Glassheart (the song) should be promoted and yall heffers will see it snatch every damn wig under the sun get em leona

    • Marvin January 18, 2013

      Somehow i doubt it. I brought this album and am sill arguing for a refund

  10. JOHNVIDAL January 18, 2013

    It must be TGJ makes these kind of posts just to get hits, always misleading and exagerating, it has to be that 🙂
    But aprt from that, great for her if she is getting some love in some countries. She doesn´t deserve to totally flop. She can´t be a huge megastar, she lacks something. But at least deserves to be moderately successful imo

    • Monstarebel (F** Boy) January 18, 2013

      i agree…she has a good voice but it seems like after her first album people lost interest in her

  11. Monstarebel (F** Boy) January 18, 2013

    what reign??

    that horse faced FLop is so boring….even her voice is boring, an extremely cheap + discounted imitated version of Mariah’s THE POP LEGEND VOICE, nothing special, just another karaoke singer….

    • F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ h***) January 18, 2013

      B**** have a seat. In what world does she sound like Cowriah or even tries to imitate her voice?
      You have no room to talk, you stan for a b**** that sounds like a goat.

    • Marvin January 18, 2013

      F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ h***) is right!
      Which part!
      Mariah is ten times the singer Leona will ever be! Mariah’s voice can not compared, even when Mariah songs are rubbish the vocals are good. Can the same be said for Leona?

    • Whatamoron January 18, 2013

      Funny as you’re stanning for an artist who can’t even hit a note…. Even karaoke is too hard for that goat. Your ‘artist’ sells music because she’s naked all the time and gets punched in the face by a n*****… You just don’t know what good music is.

  14. Geezy January 18, 2013

    When Leona first debuted she was billed as the new MC. But something happened where the masses didn’t buy into it after her debut era. I feel her label should have marketed her as Leona Lewis rather then an already established pop icon. So in doing that it did her more harm then good. Hopefully she could bounce back and win on her own merits.

    • Marvin January 18, 2013

      what happened was it soon transpired that she is a good vocalist and not a great one. Technically good, vocally boring and has the ability to make everything sound the same which Mariah and even many lesser artists don’t do. No one aspires to sing like Leona, they sill prefer Mariah and Whitney, or even Jessie J

  15. Maestro J January 18, 2013

    LL’s problem is that she is plain ol’ boring. There’s no soul in her voice. The voice is great but their’s no soul behind it. She and Jordin sparks (well Jordin finally got the hint) both need to go urban I MEAN TOTALLY URBAN. Darkchild Timbaland The Runners AKeys something with some soul because u enjoy the music from her but u just dont feel it

    • Marvin January 18, 2013

      Production doesn’t make you sound more urban, vocal ability does. Singers with soul have, its not produced via tracks

  16. Whatamoron January 18, 2013

    Haha Marvin hating on Leona, yet he’s replying on each comment here..Oh man, I feel so sorry for you.

  17. DJT January 19, 2013

    She needs to release “Glassheart” as a single!! That song is beyond amazing!! And she needs to include “Collide” as a part of the US album (not just as a bonus track)

    one hit wonder, NEXT
