Despite a modest showing in the UK, Joss Stone is enjoying record-breaking sales in the U.S. with the release of her latest album.
The album, Introducing Joss Stone, is the highest new entry by a British female artist in US chart history, according to Music Week magazine.
Billboard said it sold 118,000 copies in its first week – 11,000 behind the number one by US rock act Modest Mouse.
Yeah, apparently, her album premiered in the UK at number twelve and then steadily dropped to number twenty-four.
And this is totally random, but when I first glanced quickly at the thumbnails below, I totally wasn’t wearing my glasses and thought for a moment that Joss was carrying her pet baby seal around. And then I thought that even though I don’t think for sure that they’re an endangered species, that’s still kind of a baller pet to have. Like how I plan to show up with my genetically-engineered pet Dodo bird that I’m leading around on a diamond leash to some red-carpet event. I’ll be all, “Yeah, you want one? Well, too bad, cause I bought the LAST ONE.”
