Leona Lewis has become the first British female solo artist to score eight UK Top 5 singles.
Her latest track, One More Sleep, may have narrowly missed landing at number one on Sunday but it’s entry into the Top 5 had nonetheless made the former X Factor contestant a record breaker. Which means Leona has more than enough reason to celebrate this Christmas, now that she officially has more Top 5 hits than any other British female solo act in history.
“The support from my fans has been tremendous,” Leona told OfficialCharts.com. “”I could not do this without them!”
The songstress first made an impact on the charts with her debut single A Moment Like This. Her follow-up, Bleeding Love, sold over a million copies, making it one of the UK’s biggest singles of all time. One More Sleep is taken from Leona’s latest album, Christmas With Love, which features classic Crimbo covers together with new material.
