Leona Lewis responds to new album 'I Am' flopping...

On September 11th, Leona Lewis released her new album 'I Am,' her first under her new deal with Island/Def Jam. The problem is... no one bought it.
"It's not always about making a crater with a Big Bang, sometimes it's the small and subtle marks that begin to tip the scale and eventually weigh in our favour," she wrote on Instagram referencing the lukewarm response.

The project charted at #12 on the official UK charts this week, selling 8,500 copies first week.
It encountered similar numbers while debuting at #38 on the Billboard 200 and pushing 9,125 units.

I didn't like the album myself to be honest, but I am glad she felt it gave her some artistic freedom. I hope she doesn't give up on it and continues to promote it. For instance, she visited the ‘Late Late Show With James Corden’ last night and performed her latest Stateside single ‘Thunder.’ Check out the performance below.
