Will Susan Boyle Have The Highest Selling Album Of 2009?


Since the relase of Sussan Boyle’s ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ over a month ago, Boyle has held steady in her perch atop the Billboard top 200 Albums chart holding off the likes of Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Rihanna, R. Kelly, Mary J Blige and Adam Lambert.

And this week is no different, as the Scottish singer stays at #1 for a fifth week, forcing Mary J. Blige to debut at #2 with Stronger With Each Tear

Billboard notes that with sales last week of 510,000, Boyle’s ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ has now shifted a total of 2.9 million copies in the States—which puts it just behind the top-selling album of 2009, Taylor Swift’s Fearless (3.1 million). There’s still one more Nielsen SoundScan tracking week to factor in before the industry rings in 2010, and Susan is literally only trailing Taylor by 175,000 copies.

Elsewhere, Young Money—minus the once-planned Lil Wayne Rebirth double package—has a #9 debut with collaboration album We Are Young Money, while Eminem’s Relapse reissue bumps his LP up from #113 to #11.

Meanwhile, things aren’t looking so hot for Robin Thicke and Chris Brown—Sex Therapy: The Session falls from #9 to #30, while Brown’s Graffiti is at #31 in its third week.
