Pocketful of Sunshine
was Brit-pop artist Natasha Bedingfield
's North American sophomore album; everywhere else around the world, a similar album was released eight months earlier, simply entitled N.B. Pocketful of Sunshine
is built from half of N.B.
's original track list, as well as a handful of pop singles geared perfectly toward the mainstream American market, such as lead single "Love Like This" (with Sean Kingston
) and the title track. Compared to its international counterpart, the album was packed with more potential singles, a sunnier disposition, and a much more radio-friendly sound, allowing Bedingfield
to release two similar but different albums around the same time to appeal to the two markets in which she has found success.
