Sorry, Susan Boyle—’Hope For Haiti Now’ Set To Top The Album Chart This Week

HaitiBoyle Sorry, Susan Boyle—’Hope For Haiti Now’ Set To Top The Album Chart This WeekThe Hope For Haiti Now album of live performances collected from Friday’s telethon managed to rack up a jaw-dropping 150,000 downloads on Saturday and Sunday alone, and will top the upcoming Top 200 Albums chart, Billboard reported today.

One artist who probably let out an ear-piercing F Sharp shriek upon hearing the news was Susan Boyle, whose I Dreamed A Dream was expected to return to #1 for a seventh non-consecutive week. (Billboard notes she may end up with around 80,000 copies sold.)

Hope For Haiti Now will mark the first time a digital-only album has topped the Top 200 chart. It was added to iTunes on Saturday, and the cut-off period for sales counted toward this week’s chart was Sunday.

But as for SuBo—who’s been getting jilted left and right lately—it won’t stop her from being charitable herself. She’s lending her Scottish pipes to Simon Cowell’s forthcoming all-star “Everybody Hurts” cover, the proceeds from which will benefit Haiti relief efforts.

“The Haiti earthquake has caused devastation and suffering that most of us will never experience nor could imagine,” Boyle recently said. “I feel privileged to be a part of such a wonderful project that will raise money to help the country.”

The 20-track Hope For Haiti Now album features songs by Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Madonna, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Shakira and Taylor Swift.

    Susan Boyle has a great voice, if she only look good then she could have been a fast rising star. the music industry is also like showbiz, somehow you need to look good if you want to become famous fast.
