9 Lives (Kat De Luna Album)

9 Lives is the debut studio album by pop singer Kat DeLuna. It was released in the United States on August 7, 2007. The album is a mix of pop and dance songs with latin and reggae-dancehall influences. The album is mainly produced by RedOne, who at the time was unknown. Many of the songs on the album have a Hispanic feel, mainly the track Am I Dreaming. The album features guest appearances by artist such as Shaka Dee, Don Omar, Elephant Man and American rapper Busta Rhymes. DeLuna would later collaborate with Elephant Man yet again on her 2010 album, Inside Out.

9 Lives saw the release of three singles. The first of these, "Whine Up", featured Elephant Man on guest vocals, and has become DeLuna's biggest hit to date. It is, so far, her only single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, where it peaked at number 29. In that country, the song became a smash hit over the Summer, topping the Hot Dance Club Play chart, as well as receiving heavily airplay on radio stations. It was also met with success in countries foreign to DeLuna, reaching the top 10 in France and Belgium. The single also had a large amount of success in countries such as Germany and Australia, peaking inside the Top 20 of both countries.

"Run the Show" was released as the second official single. The US version featured rapper Busta Rhymes, however, the international version featured Don Omar instead. The single has become one of DeLuna's highest charting singles, as well as her first to enter the charts in the United Kingdom. Although it failed to chart on the Hot 100 in the United States, the single proved to be a big dance hit, peaking at number 2 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. The final single from the album was "In the End", which was only released in certain territories, excluding the US and UK.

The album was a commercial failure in the US. It debuted at number 58 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 11,000 copies in its first week. Since its release, the album has sold nearly 200,000 copies to date. It served better in foreign countries however, reaching the Top 20 in Belgium, Poland, and Finland. In France, the album reached a peak of number 26, and later received a silver certification in the country.

Famous quotes containing the word lives:

    The white man regards the universe as a gigantic machine hurtling through time and space to its final destruction: individuals in it are but tiny organisms with private lives that lead to private deaths: personal power, success and fame are the absolute measures of values, the things to live for. This outlook on life divides the universe into a host of individual little entities which cannot help being in constant conflict thereby hastening the approach of the hour of their final destruction.
