In the U.S., Spirit debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart, marking the first time in music history that any album by a British female artist has entered Billboard’s Top 200 album chart at #1, as well as the first time any British artist, male or female, has claimed the top spot with a debut album. Spirit features her #1 worldwide massive hit single “Bleeding Love” which was the best selling single of 2008 and awarded Leona the honor of being the first British female solo artist to top the Hot 100 in more than 21 years.
