Unbreakable Smile, the full-length debut from Capitol Records recording artist Tori Kelly, bows at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, selling 75,200 equivalent album units in its first week of release. The album, which is available HERE, went to No. 1 on iTunes in the United States, Canada and New Zealand and charted in the Top 3 in Australia. Max Martin (Katy Perry, P!nk, Taylor Swift) served as executive producer of Unbreakable Smile, which includes collaborations with Ed Sheeran, LL Cool J and Daye Jack.
The album contains the singles “Nobody Love,” a Top 20 hit on Billboard’s Pop Songs chart that has upwards of 10 million streams, and “Should’ve Been Us,” which has entered the Top 25 at Pop radio. The official video for “Should’ve Been Us,” directed by Rory Kramer, premiered last week and already has more than one million views. It can be seen HERE.
Tori will perform on “The View” on July 9 and the outdoor stage of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on July 20. She launched Unbreakable Smile with appearances on “Good Morning America,” “Live! with Kelly & Michael” and “Watch What Happens Live” plus album release shows in New York City and Los Angeles. Her North American headline tour wraps up this Friday, July 3, with a concert at Paradise Lounge in Boston. At last Sunday’s BET Awards, she brought the crowd to its feet with her special rendition of “Who’s Loving You” during the Smokey Robinson tribute.
Born and raised in Temecula, California, Kelly first rose to attention after her cover of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” went viral, racking up over 22 million views on YouTube.
