Being in the public eye literally every day for the last couple of weeks has paid off for the probably-exhausted Cheryl Cole, whose single 'Call My Name' has lived up to its midweek hype and scored the biggest seven-day sales total of any song in 2012.
With a staggering 152,000 downloads shifted since midnight last Sunday, it surpasses DJ Fresh and Rita Ora's 'Hot Right Now' (128,000) to net the best first-week sales for a 2012 single, and Gary Barlow and the Commonwealth Band's 'Sing' (143,000) to score the best any-week sales for a 2012 single.
Remarkably it is the THIRD time that Cheryl has bagged the fastest seller title in her solo career. 'Promise This' set a new record for 2010 opening sales when it netted 157,000 in its first week, prior to which 'Fight For This Love' sold an astonishing 292,845 in seven days in 2009.
'Call My Name' is her first solo effort to be launched without the huge platform of a performance on The X Factor.
In support of its release she performed it on The Voice UK, The Graham Norton Show, the Capital FM Summertime Ball and T4.
Last night she launched her third album A Million Lights with a performance at London's G-A-Y nightclub - her first performance at the hotspot since one of Girls Aloud's first gigs nearly 10 years ago.
Cheryl sweats it out; still looks incredible
