Susan Boyle Stays At #1 As Adam Lambert, Rihanna And Gaga Drop

sbxmas Susan Boyle Stays At #1 As Adam Lambert, Rihanna And Gaga DropSusan Boyle managed to fend off Andrea Bocelli’s My Christmas to retain the #1 position on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart this week, the trade publication reports. I Dreamed A Dream has now sold a total of 1.23 copies in the U.S. after only two weeks.

Well, Simon Cowell did have Boyle record “Silent Night” for her set of standards, and you can never underestimate the impulse buys of the holiday-shopping public. Does this technically make I Dreamed A Dream a holiday album? Hardly. But when it comes to safe fare for the whole family in December, Susan Boyle more than fits the bill of perfect cookie-baking jams to bring to Grandma’s house.

R. Kelly, on the other hand, debuts at #4 with Untitled. The “Pregnant” singer sold 114,000 copies of his ninth studio album, and even got bested by Taylor Swift’s Fearless (at #3), which has been out for well over a year now. Of course, her multiple Grammy nominations likely had something to do with her boost in sales.

Other than Susan Boyle, last week’s big new entries from Adam Lambert, Rihanna and Lady Gaga have now all been bumped out of the Top 10. Hits Daily Double has Gaga’s The Fame Monster dropping down to #15 with sales of 60,333 copies, Rihanna’s Rated-R at #18 (53, 544) and Lambert’s For Your Entertainment at #21 (50,648). Final Top 200 chart positions will be published by Billboard tomorrow.

HDD also shows Allison Iraheta debuting at #34 with Just Like You, after sales of almost 32,000. Hey, at least she bought a copy!

The Top 10 of Billboard’s Top 200 Albums:

1. Susan Boyle, I Dreamed A Dream
2. Andrea Bocelli, My Christmas
3. Taylor Swift, Fearless
4. R. Kelly, Untitled *new*
5. Lady Gaga, The Fame
6. Carrie Underwood, Play On
7. Norah Jones, The Fall
8. Michael Jackson, This Is It
9. Various, The Twilight Saga: New Moon
10. Michael Buble, Crazy Love
