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.
