Currently approaching the Top 20 in the USA, "Criminal" hit #1 on the Canadian radio airplay charts the week of this post (April 9, 2018) and it's easy to see why when you hear the strong melody of the song she co-wrote and which was produced by Sugarland's Kristian Bush. The single, remarkably, is the first single from a Canadian female artist to hit #1 on the Canadian country radio airplay charts in a DECADE.
“I am humbled and grateful to be the first female artist to have a #1 since 2008 on the Canadian Country radio charts,” commented Ell. “Sometimes you work so hard for the things you want, they feel surreal when they happen. Thank you Country radio for believing in me and making this possible. Thank you to each and every fan for never giving up on me. I will try my best to continue to make you proud.”
