Nice to see Colbie Caillat, a Joyhog fave, zoom to No. 1 on this week’s Billboard 200 with her sophomore album “Breakthrough.”
An excited Caillat told Billboard.com:
“I can’t believe it. I’m so excited. I’m so thankful. I’ve grown up a lot over the past two years and I…just knew exactly what I wanted for the record and I was able to express that to my producers and the people I wrote songs with. To be able to do it the way I wanted and it actually turned out the way I wanted feels like such an accomplishment.”
Caillat’s 2007 debut, “Coco,” peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and has been certified double-platinum. “Breakthrough’s” first single, “Fallin’ For You,” has reached No. 12 on the Hot 100, and two tracks — “Begin Again” and “You Got Me” — are under consideration for the follow-up, with “Fearless” Caillat’s personal choice for a third single.
