 Leona Lewis sets new Official Singles Chart record!
Published on: 31 Dec 2013 - 16:22 by - Envoirment

Leona Lewis becomes first British female solo artist to score eight UK Top 5 singles.

Her new single, One More Sleep, may have narrowly been kept off Number 1 yesterday, but Leona Lewis has cause for celebration nevertheless after setting a new Official Singles Chart record.

Leona now has more Top 5 hits to her name than any other British female solo artist in history!

"The support from my fans has been tremendous," she tells "I could not do this without them!"

Leona made her Official Singles Chart debut seven years ago with her X Factor winnerís single, A Moment Like This. She then topped the chart again the following year with Bleeding Love, the first single from her debut album, Spirit. The track went on to become one of the UKís biggest singles of all-time, selling over a million copies.

2008ís Better In Time / Footprints In The Sand peaked at Number 2, while Forgive Me and Run peaked at Number 5 and Number 1, respectively, later that year. Happy, the lead single from Leonaís second album, Echo, peaked at Number 2 in 2009, while Collide, her 2011 collaboration with Avicii, peaked at Number 4.

And now with One More Sleep peaking at Number 3, Leona overtakes previous record holder, British-born singer and actress Olivia-Newton John's tally of seven UK Top 5 hits (including 1991ís Grease Megamix and the 1998 re-release of her duet with John Travolta, Youíre The One That I Want). Petula Clark, Shirley Bassey, Cilla Black, Geri Halliwell, Jessie J and Ellie Goulding sit in joint third place with six solo UK Top 5s, each.
