WHAT DOES ON THE HORIZON MEAN IN ENGLISH?

On the Horizon

"On the Horizon" is a song released by British singer-songwriter Melanie C. It was released as the second single from Reason. After the previous single "Here It Comes Again)" charted at #7, and with "Reason" falling down the chart quickly, fans and critics alike were predicting that this single would redeem Melanie's chart success. However, it only managed to reach #14 in the UK Singles Chart, selling 8,000 copies in its first week. It didn't help the sales of her album Reason, which barely managed to rise into the UK Albums Chart. The single went on to sell more than 22,000 copies. Melanie C performed the song on Reason UK & Ireland Tour.
