While the most remembered female acts of the early 00s were probably the Blonde Trinity (Britney, Christina and Jessica Simpson or was it Mandy?) came the anti-manufactored Black-haired female artists who could play instruments, Norah Jones, Vanessa Carlton & Michelle Branch. None would see long-term successful but all strangely had a big influence at the time.
Her debut album sold over 11 million copies in the US, (27 mil worldwide), which was actually more than Britney's debut (10 mil US, 25 Worldwide) and Xtina's (9 mil US, 14 Worldwide). The album didn't have any top 10 hits but spawned iconic hits 'Don't know why', 'Come Away with Me'. Which you might have heard if you had to call your bank, telecommunication provider and had to hold on the line for a while. With the rise of piracy in the early 00s Norah did not have any sales close to her debut.
She is still making music and has released a new album earlier this year titled 'Pick Me Up Off The Fllor'
