Cosima is the self-titled debut album by Australian Idol finalist and Australian singer Cosima De Vito, released in 2004 (see 2004 in music). The album features the Cold Chisel-cover and power ballad hit single "When the War Is Over" and songs penned by American songwriter Diane Warren. Originally conceived for the end of 2003, the recording of the album was delayed due to Cosima's acute vocal cord illness.

Chart performance[edit]

Upon its debut the album hit number two, very nearly missing the top position. The album missed out on the pole position to Maroon 5's Songs about Jane by a matter of a few hundred copies. While this was a very high debut for an independent artist, the following weeks saw the album drop very quickly until it was out of the Top fifty within a matter of weeks (it dropped to number fourteen in only its second week). Indeed in the subsequent weeks, due to the lack of a strong radio single, the album dropped with little to push it up except Cosima's star power.

Despite its short run on the charts, the album has been a consistent seller due to various events Cosima has participated in since its release. To date it has sold over 50,000 copies[1].
