Lily Allen checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@lilymusic) on Thursday (February 12), requesting fans in America to pick up her just released sophomore album in a bid to land atop the U.S. charts. The British singer songwriter is benefiting from a slow period in album releases, but up against the boost Alison Krauss and Robert Plant received after their Grammy wins. Allen tells readers:
Ok, so I never thought I would have to write this blog. Earlier today my record company told me ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’ (my new album) has a pretty good chance of going to number 1 in the US charts this week. I’m currently sitting behind Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, who, quite rightly are sitting at no 1. I’ve never had a number one album in England, never mind the US, and all of this is a bit crazy. I could well be up for no1 here (America), which makes me want to cry a bit. I’ve never begged you to buy from me ever, but I am now. This will be the only time ever in my life that this could happen for me. Help me get to no 1, go to iTunes and download the album, you’re the only hope I’ve got guys. I’ll love you forever.
Ps thank you to everyone who has brought me this far.
I love you always x
