Dido- Life for Rent
United States- Dido again released her second album “Life for Rent” in the US. The album peaked higher at number 2 and was certified by RIAA with 2x platinum. The album released a number of singles, nevertheless, the singles never reached the top 10. She only had one single from the album to chart at the Hot 100. That song was “White Flag” which peaked at number 18, also a hit in a number of component charts.
United Kingdom- Dido’s second album was a record breaker in United Kingdom for being one of the fastest selling albums there. Aside from being a chart-topping album, it was even awarded by BPI with 9x platinum. The album had hit singles too. Check those songs below:
White Flag- #2
Life for Rent- #8
Clearly, Dido managed two singles to reach the top 10. First waz the carrier single “White Flag” for reaching the second spot. It became her biggest hit ever in the country which was awarded with Gold Record. Her second single from the record “Life for Rent” had went to number 8. She had two other singles which charted. The first one was “Don’t Leave Home” which sat at number 25, and it was followed by “Sand in My Shoes” at number 29.
Dido’s biggest hit in the United States has been “White Flag” which was the only single from the album thay charted. In Unite Kingdom, that song was also her biggest hit song for peaking at 2nd spot. That’s why I am sharing that song below. Not just it’s a big hit, rather a beautiful song too:
White Flag (Chorus)
But I will go down with this ship
And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I’m in love and always will be
