US chart triumph for Leona Lewis

BBC NEWS | Entertainment

"Singer Leona Lewis has become the first British woman to top the US pop chart for more than 20 years with her single Bleeding Love."

UK video on YouTube (over thirty million plays). The official US video (another few million plays!).

Number one in the Billboard hot 100. Not one of my favourite songs, but she's done well, good luck to her - nice voice. I hated being stuck in the back of a mini-cab (more than once) and feeling embarrassed while Ahmed the driver was listening to this on Capital Radio, among the rest of that gloop and heavy breathing musical porn.
