Now certified platinum from sales of over 600,000 units in Britain, the single 'Cheerleader' has sold to date, more than 1.9 million copies worldwide.

This 'Cheerleader' single staying power, has maximized it's marketability and we are now watching it climb the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, moving up from #79 to #31 over a 3 weeks period. Other significant charting reported by Kevin Jackson for the Jamaica Observer are the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart at #29, Mainstream Top 40 chart at #31 and the Rhythmic chart at #28.
