'The X Factor' winner - who broke records with her debut single 'A Moment Like This' after she won the ITV reality show last year - is already outselling her biggest chart rivals Take That by two-to-one.
More than 3,000 people snapped up 'Bleeding Love' in the first hour after it had been released on Monday (22.10.07).
Record store HMV spokesperson Gennaro Castaldo said: "It's turning out to be a massive week for singles sales. 'Bleeding Love' is outselling Take That's 'Rule The World' by two-to-one and the rest of the top ten combined, and is on course to top 200,000 sales by the end of the week if stores can keep it in stock - it's without doubt the fastest-selling single of the year."
The 'Bleeding Love' video - which shows stunning Leona in curve-hugging Dolce and Gabanna dresses - is attracting an average of 150 views a minute worldwide on video sharing website YouTube.
The promo also received three million views online in the first 24 hours it was available.
If Leona is still number one when the top 10 selling singles in the UK are announced on Sunday (28.10.07), she will become the first 'The X Factor' winner to reach the top spot with a second single.
