It's not been a great week for X Factor judge Tulisa.

After last weekend's X Factor performance of her new single was slated by viewers, Tulisa has taken another hit today.

The singer's highly anticipated album 'The Female Boss' was released on Monday and sales haven't exactly been through the roof.

According to today's midweek chart, the former N-Dubz star's debut solo album has landed at number 22.

Track 'Sight of You' has fared a little better, charting on the singles tally at number 12.

Considering Tulisa is part of one of the biggest music platforms in the country we have to say we are more than a little surprised at her limited chart success.

One thing that should cheer Miss Contostavlos up however is news that X Factor heartthrob James Arthur fancies the pants off her.

Every cloud eh?

The singer was asked in an interview with Look magazine who out of Nicole Scherzinger, Caroline Flack and Tulisa he fancied most.

And it seems that the singer/ songwriter has taste for women who stay true to their urban roots.

He told Look: "Tulisa is really strong and very hot, she's definitely my type."

Talking about Nicole, James admitted that when he first met her he had trouble taken in what she was saying to him on account of her beauty.

He explained:  It took me a while to get past how beautiful Nicole is before I could listen to what she
was saying to me!

"But we're buddies now. It takes her half an hour to make a point, what with her metaphors, but she's inspirational and she has me in stitches."
