Christina Perri’s “lovestrong.” Debuts at #4 on Billboard 200

Christina Perri Proves Love is Strong with Top 5 Billboard Debut
Only the Second Debut Album to Bow Top 5 So Far in 2011

Christina Perri’s debut album lovestrong. has blasted into the #4 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 after an outstanding first week of sales. The album, which hit stores on May 10th (Atlantic Records), marks quite an accomplishment for Perri, who is only the second new artist this year to debut in the Top 5 with her first album.

The strong debut comes on the success of her hits “Jar of Hearts” (over 2 million singles) and “Arms.” The latter track has made fast work climbing Hot AC radio charts, with “Jar” still spinning strong at Top 40 stations over ten months after release. The “Arms” music video is already a staple on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown, moving to Large rotation this week.

Christina has been sweeping television this past week, performing on Ellen (5/13), The Today Show (5/17) and Jimmy Kimmel Live! (5/18), as well as appearances on MTV’s The Seven and VH1’s Morning Buzz.

In addition, “Jar of Hearts” received the Glee treatment on release date when Lea Michele’s striking rendition of the song aired during the “Prom Queen” episode last Tuesday. The Glee Cast version of the track sold 70,000 copies this week, while Perri’s original climbed back into iTunes Top 30, selling 73,000 downloads.

Perri just wrapped three weeks of dates with James Blunt and has announced news of her first-ever headlining tour that kicks off in Las Vegas on July 16th and keeps her on the road until mid-August. The trek also includes stops at this year’s Lollapalooza and Outside Lands festivals.

Christina Perri Announces Summer Headlining Tour + Lollapalooza Date Kicking off on July 16th in Las Vegas, NV at The Cosmopolitan

Christina Perri will hit the road this Summer on her first ever headlining tour of the US in support of her debut album lovestrong. – out May 10th on Atlantic Records. Kicking off on July 16th in Las Vegas, NV with a show at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the tour includes a performance at this year’s Lollapalooza and ends in her current home of Los Angeles, CA at the Troubadour on August 11th.

Christina Perri is one of the most buzzed-about new acts of the past year thanks to her runaway hit single “Jar Of Hearts.” The song catapulted her into the spotlight after airing on So You Think You Can Dance. Since then Perri has performed live on Conan, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBS The Early Show, garnered accolades from the press including USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, ELLE, and Teen Vogue (among others) and her music and songs have been described as “coolly soulful” (Philadelphia Inquirer), “raw, riveting and emotional” (Huffington Post) and “raspy tales of love” (Billboard).

“Jar Of Hearts” has since been certified double platinum, and lovestrong.’s second single “Arms” is surefire to be another hit, with VH1 adding the video straight into medium rotation. Billboard described the new single as “an effervescent love song that pairs the voracity of Florence & the Machine with the growling undertones of Adele’s voice.”

Christina Perri’s release of lovestrong. on May 10th will surely solidify her as one of 2011’s great success stories.
