Susan Boyle Controls The Chart, Closes In On Taylor Swift

SuBo Susan Boyle Controls The Chart, Closes In On Taylor SwiftSince the release of I Dreamed A Dream over a month ago, silver-tongued song vixen Susan Boyle has held steady in her perch atop the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and warded off other high profile new releases from Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Rihanna, R. Kelly 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.

Chris should just start tweeting again at this point. At least then people who aren’t buying his album can still be entertained by him.

The Top 10 of Billboard’s Top 200 Albums:

1. Susan Boyle, I Dreamed A Dream
2. Mary J. Blige, Stronger With Each Tear *new*
3. Andrea Bocelli, My Christmas
4. Alica Keys, The Element Of Freedom
5. Taylor Swift, Fearless
6. Lady Gaga, The Fame
7. Justin Bieber, My World
8. Carrie Underwood, Play On
9. Young Money, We Are Young Money *new*
10. Michael Buble, Crazy Love
