Winning the British counterpart of the world-famous American Idol the “X Factor” which is also judged by Cowell, Leona is said to be the first winner of any reality-singing competition which is to be given a world-wide career debut.

The Album, which was released last November in the United Kingdom, was received positively by the critiques and the Brits achieved big amounts of success that made her name listed in the Guinness Book World Records and became the fastest selling debut album in the history of the United Kingdom.
