Leona Lewis' Snow Patrol cover breaks download record

viernes, 5 de diciembre de 2008 |

Leona Lewis' new single, a cover of Snow Patrol's 'Run', has become the fastest-selling digital-only track in the UK.

The song has been downloaded around 70,000 times since it was made available as a digital single on Sunday (November 30), reports BBC News.

The tune has surpassed the previous record-holder, Estelle's 'American Boy', which was downloaded 51,857 time in its first week of sales.

As previously reported, Lewis' cover of 'Run' was not initially intended to be released as a single, with the singer's record label, Sony, then accused of attempting to cash in by tagging it on to a reissue of her 2007 debut album, 'Spirit'.

'Run' reached Number 5 in 2003 when first released by Snow Patrol, and their version has also recently returned to the UK singles chart on downloads alone.
