U.S. Airwaves Bleeding For Leona!

The amazing run of Leona Lewis' hit single "Bleeding Love" continues here in America. After hitting #1 on FOUR different Billboard charts last week, "Bleeding Love" has now launched a full-fledged assault on the #1 spot on the U.S. pop radio airwaves! There's lots of fierce competition on the pop radio airplay charts, but as you'll see, Leona and her smash hit (currently #10 on the Mediabase Top 40 pop chart) seem to definitely be up to the challenge!!!

For those of you that aren't familiar with the charts, the main number you need to pay attention to is the 1417 in the next to last column. That's the number of spins "Bleeding Love" has picked up on the U.S. pop radio airwaves over the past week. Yes, Leona's picking up on average over 200 spins a day! Today alone, it picked up an incredible 237 spins!

To make a long story short, "Bleeding Love" is the hottest song on the pop chart at the moment as the Mediabase "Jump" chart clearly shows:

5.RAY J/YUNG BERG Sexy Can I +877

Yes, "Bleeding Love" is growing at an even faster rate than the much-anticipated new Madonna release, "4 Minutes" and every other song out at the moment!!! At it's current rate of growth, it could very well reach #7 on the big chart by this weekend! "Bleeding Love" is all but assured of a top 5 peak, but it's looking more and more like there's just about nothing left to stop this classic song from hitting #1 on the U.S. Pop radio airplay charts! Perhaps as soon as the end of this month, Leona Lewis will have a #1 U.S. Pop airplay crown to add to her ever-growing mantle!

And a week from today, Leona's debut album Spirit will be released for all of America to enjoy. I get the feeling that "Bleeding Love" is just the tip of the iceberg so to speak in terms of Leona's potential here in the U.S. and globally.

Yo John can you send me on of those cd singles since they don't have Target where I live. Also "Bleeding Love" is the best of the 3 listed in your poll by far and I hope it is the biggest hit!!!
