Epiphany (I'm Leaving)

Album: Epiphany (2009)
Charted: 89
  • Michele told Billboard magazine that she named her sophomore album after this Ne-Yo penned track as a result of having a realization about relationships. Michele was referring to the relationship with her former manager, Douglas "Biggs" Ellison, who Michele sued for embezzlement and harassment in 2008. She explained: "I heard the song that Ne-Yo had written titled 'Epiphany,' and the word just stood out to me. It stood out to me because I'd been through a lot in my last relationship, and the word 'epiphany' exemplified exactly what happened in the end when I realized I didn't have to put myself through it anymore."
  • The album debuted at #1 on the US Billboard charts. However the week-ending sale total of 83,000 copies was the lowest for a #1-entering album since tracking firm Nielsen Soundscan's started keeping records in 1991. A few months later, the Country duo Sugarland clocked up a new low when their Wal-Mart exclusive CD/DVD package Live on the Inside debuted at #1 with 76,000 sales.
