Beautiful Intentions is the third solo album from singer-songwriter Melanie C. The is the first album release on Chisholm's self-founded label, Red Girl Records after parting ways with Virgin Records. The album was Chisholm's labour of love for a year, and she previewed several tracks on her Barfly mini tour in June 2004 before going into the studio to record the tracks. Following the release of the first single, "Next Best Superstar", the album was released on 11 April 2005 in the UK and some international countries. Later the album was re-released in some countries (with a new song on it - "First Day of My Life"). Chisholm stated in an Australian interview that she was pleased Beautiful Intentions has outsold her previous album Reason. Beautiful Intentions has received Gold certification in Germany and Switzerland. In Portugal, it has gone Platinum (9 weeks at #1). It has sold over 1,5 million copies worldwide and was met with very positive reviews.
