Following the milestone, everything was a triumph in her musical career as she went on to release several studio albums, including the 'Battlefield,' which reached no.7 on the Billboard 200 chart. Likewise, the diva went on to sing alongside the likes of Chris Brown and became the only Idol winner to have five of her singles reach the top 20 in the United Nations.
Winning the 'American Idol' in 2007 gave her all the attention for talent to materialize. All credits to the diva, who continued to work hard and settle her place in the music industry. Thirteen years after winning the title, she released multiple albums and mixtapes and went on a few tours. All that meant two results, in particular, massive fame and enormous wealth.
