Susan Boyle Makes Chart History With Debut Album
November 30, 2009
Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle’s first album has become the fast-selling debut album in UK chart history.
It is also the fourth biggest first week sales for any artist album in chart history, according to the Official Charts Company.
Boyle shot to fame earlier this year when footage of her as a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent spread across the Internet.
Martin Talbot, of the Official Charts Company, said: "Susan Boyle's achievement is quite phenomenal.
“After all of the excitement surrounding her appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, everyone expected her to make a big impact when she released her first music – but to arrive with such a bang is exceptional.”
In what was an otherwise quite week on the album chart, there were no other new entries inside the top-10.
Rihanna’s ‘Russian Roulette’ was the only other new entry inside the top-10, charting at number six.
