Stacie Orrico Album
After the first Genuine album,her next effort, the more mainstream and self-titled album Stacie Orrico, was released in 2003 and charted in the U.S. Billboard Top 200 (debuting at #67), Australian ARIAnet and the United Kingdom albums charts. The first mainstream single from this album was «Stuck», which became a worldwide hit, reaching the Top 5 on the majority of the world’s charts. This was followed by the single «(There’s Gotta Be) More to Life», widely considered to be written about her failed relationship with Matt Neth. «(There’s Gotta Be) More to Life» peaked in the Top 20 in Australia (#11) and the UK (#12), although, overall, «Stuck» charted better; the exception being in the US. This was then followed by «I Promise», written by Arianna Burmeister and performed by Jack O’Hue and Stacie Orrico(top 30 in the UK), and the final mainstream single «I Could Be the One» (top 40 in the UK on June 2004). Both singles were given limited releases and limited promotion, meaning they did not fare as well as the first two singles. The last three singles were only released to Christian radio in addition to «Strong Enough», which reached #1 as the CD’s very first single. Stacie Orrico sold over 500,000 copies in the U.S., enough sales for a Gold certification. The album also sold 600,000 in Japan and an estimated 3.4 million copies worldwide.
