Susan Boyle Debuts at No. 1 on Hot 200, Knocking Taylor Swift

's sophomore set "" sells 318,000 copies in its first week. Although not even close to her last year's opening week of "I Dreamed a Dream" which bowed with 701,000, it's enough to allow the British singing sensation to dethrone last week's champ from the first spot of Billboard Hot 200.

In between those new arrivals, there are 's "", 's "" and 's "I'm Not a Human Being". All the three of them suffer a fall. Aldean gives up his last week's position at No. 2 to sit at No. 6, Sugarland are pushed aside from No. 3 to No. 8, and Weezy drops from No. 5 to No. 10.
