Duffy is considering quitting music – according to one tabloid newspaper report.

The Welsh singer's second album 'Endlessly' has underperformed sales-wise compared to her 2008 debut album 'Rockferry'. Now she is said to be considering whether to carry on working within music at all.

According to the Daily Mirror, an anonymous source has said the singer is "really down about 'Endlessly'. It didn’t sell well and charted terribly and she isn’t trying again and making a comeback."

The source added: "She wants to have a quiet life and start over. Duffy made a truckload of cash with the first album and through her endorsements with Diet Coke, so she’s comfortable and able to enjoy some downtime. She’s not got management right now and has met a few people about taking over. But she’s just not interested."
