"Schizophonic" was the first solo album by pop singer Geri Halliwell after her split from popular girl group the Spice Girls. The term "schizophonic" is a portmanteau of the Greek words "schizo" "split, divide" and "phonic" "sound" and also seemingly a play on the word "schizophrenic". The word "schizophonic" could be translated as "shattered sound".

Chart and sales

Three of the four singles from the album went to number one in the United Kingdom, while the debut single made number two. The album was a commercial success, selling 2.5 million copies around the globe. This album actually sold better than "Forever", the Spice Girls album that was released after Geri's departure from the group. "Schizophonic" had double the sales of "Forever" in the United Kingdom and in the United States.

The album debuted at number-four in the United Kingdom, selling 31,274 in its first week, and 483,419 in total, being certified 2x Platinum for shipments of 600,000 copies.

In Canada, the album debuted and peaked at a disappointing fifteen (her last album with the Spice Girls, Spiceworld debuted at number two). However, long-term sales were strong and the album was certified Platinum with just over 100,000 copies shipped.

In the United States, the album faced medium success, selling 40,000 copies in its first week debuting and peaking at forty-two on the Billboard Hot 200 (still the strongest Spice Girls solo showing on the chart). Eventually, the album was certified Gold in 2001 with shipments of 500,000 copies.

The album also was certified Gold in Australia, Spain and Mexico with sales over 35,000, 50,000 and 75,000 respectively. However, the album only reached eighty-five in Japan, selling 3,190 copies.
