A look at Susan Boyle's incredible success.


Susan Boyle's 'I Dreamed A Dream' (Columbia Records) dominates the charts holding down the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 for the third consecutive week with 581,966 copies sold. The album has also received RIAA-Triple Platinum Certification for shipping over three million units to retailers nationwide. ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ continues to break records by becoming the biggest selling album released in 2009.

In addition, ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ is the first album released in 2009 to hold the #1 spot consecutively for three weeks and has garnered the highest album sales for a debut artist during that time period. YouTube announced today that Susan Boyle’s “I Dreamed A Dream” from “Britain’s Got Talent” is their most watched video of 2009.

Internationally, Boyle's debut album was #1 again on the charts this week in the UK, Ireland, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland. 'I Dreamed A Dream' has shipped over 7 million copies worldwide and has become the fastest selling global female debut.
'I Dreamed A Dream' made history two weeks ago as the largest-ever debut for a female artist on the Billboard 200 in the Soundscan era, and marked the highest first, second and third-week sales for any album in 2009.
