Jagged Little Pill is the third studio album by Canadian recording artist and songwriter Alanis Morissette. Morissette's first internationally released album, and her first studio album after the three year hiatus following her break with MCA Records, it became a commercial and critical success, selling over 33 million copies worldwide. Co-written with the album's producer, Glen Ballard, who introduced a pop sensibility to Morissette's bitter angst, Jagged Little Pill produced six singles, including the Grammy nominated "Ironic".
Morissette started recording the album after moving to Toronto, Canada until she travelled to Los Angeles where she met the producer Glen Ballard, who was the only producer for the album. The album had charting success worldwide, peaking at number one in her native Canada for 24 weeks (three weeks in late 1995, an unbroken 19-week run in 1996 and two separate weeks later in the year) as well as reaching number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, staying there for twelve non-consecutive weeks. Until and by 2009, the album had sold over 33 million units/copies worldwide, topping the charts in ten countries, including the UK, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand,
