Susan Boyle still No.1 on Billboard 200 albums

Susan Boyle reigns at No. 1 next week on the Billboard 200 albums chart with her latest album, The Gift. The Gift sold 238,711 copies in the USA this week.





Taylor who has already spent 6 weeks at the Top 10 bows down for the 2nd week with the sales of 201,318 in this busy festive shopping spree week. Speak Now is the third studio album was released on October 25, 2010 by Big Machine Records.

Last week Speak now bowed down to #4. It's too early to tell how much it could sell by month's end, but The Gift from Susan Boyle will easily beat out the biggest competitors like Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Kanye West and The Black Eyes Peas.

According to Billboard, last week Boyle went again to the #1 position with The Gift (272,000; up 3%) while the Peas' 'The Beginning' debut at No. 6 with 119,000 copies sold in the US.

Swift's however, debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 1,047,000 copies in the United States alone.
