Leona Lewis Single Fails To Make Top 200
Lovebird becomes the former X Factor winner's lowest-selling single ever...
Leona Lewis' latest single Lovebird has missed out on a top 200 place in the Official UK Singles Chart.
The track, which is the second single to be released from Leona's latest album Glassheart, came out on 9 December, but failed to make the top 200, selling fewer than 600 copies in its first week.
A source told The Mirror: "This is a bitter pill to swallow for Leona and there is no sugar-coating it.
"The single was strong and should have done better but, unfortunately, there was no real marketing force behind it."
Lovebird is now Leona's lowest-selling single ever, and the source blamed lack of radio airplay and the fact that it "wasn't released as an official second single" for the disappointing sales.
The insider added: "It's a little embarrassing for the label because they have invested so heavily in Leona. Having said that, the album did really well and the main thing for Leona is that she's really proud of all the tracks. There are no fillers."
Glassheart reached number three in the Official UK Album Chart following its release in October.
