R&B/Pop star Natasha Bedingfield has entered the US chart at number three with her album ‘Pocketful of Sunshine.’ This mark ties soul singer Sade for having the highest-ever US chart debut for a UK signed female.
The British singer shifted 50,000 copies of the album in its first week of release. It reached number nine in the UK last year under the title ‘NB.’
The international version of the album adds several new tracks, including the current US hit single “Love Like This,” featuring Sean Kingston.
Bedingfield, who reached the US top five with her song Unwritten in 2005, is due to play a number of dates in the US this Spring.
She has also planned a number of intimate free acoustic gigs in the UK later this Spring, but full details are yet to be released.
