Susan Boyle Debuts at No. 1 on Hot 200, Knocking Taylor Swift
Susan Boyle's sophomore set "The Gift" 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 Taylor Swift from the first spot of Billboard Hot 200.
Knocked off the hot spot, Swift manages to fall only one spot. Her already-platinum-certified studio album "Speak Now" sits at the runner-up place with additional 212,000 units sold which gives her a total of nearing 1.6 million since the effort made its way out across United States on October 25.
Just below her, there is Kid Cudi securing the third place with his "Man on the Moon II : The Legend of Mr. Rager". The other four new entries are the new "Now 36" compilation which arrives at No. 4, Bon Jovi's "Greatest Hits" at No. 5, Reba McEntire's "All the Women I Am" at No. 7, and Cee-Lo's "The Lady Killer" at No. 9.
In between those new arrivals, there are Jason Aldean's "My Kinda Party", Sugarland's "The Incredible Machine" and Lil Wayne'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.
