Susan Boyle Thwarts Off New Releases

Susan Boyle

Susan Boyle continues her winning streak, fending off all those who cross her path. New releases from Chris Brown, Gucci Mane, Snoop Dogg, Timbaland, and the Clipse were no match for the “Britain’s Got Talent” runner-up.

Boyle’s debut album, I Dreamed a Dream, holds onto the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 for the third week in a row, pulling in another 582,000 copies. It is expected to remain No. 1 next week despite new releases from Alicia Keys and Robin Thicke.

Chris Brown returns to the charts with Graffiti, his first album since 2007, which debuts at No. 7, selling 102,000 in its first week. The numbers mark Brown’s lowest debut of his career. His sophomore album, Exclusive, entered at No. 4 with 294,000 units, while his self-titled debut opened at No. 2 in 2005 with 154,000.

Meanwhile, Brown’s ex-girlfriend Rihanna slides down the charts. Her fourth effort Rated R fell from No. 14 to No. 25 with 50,000 in its third week of release.

Not even prison can hold down Gucci Mane, whose Asylum/Warner Bros. Records debut The State vs. Radric Davis locks in at No. 10 (90,000).

Also new to the charts this week are Snoop Dogg’s Malice N Wonderland, which bows at No. 21 (59,000), Timbaland’s Shock Value II at No. 32 (39,000), and the Clipse’s ’Til The Casket Drops at No. 41 (31,000).

    man, I guess people weren’t really checking for Timbaland. Him labeling Miley Cirus as the “female Justin Timberlake” almost made me puke in my mouth.

    @Giselle, methinks it’s mainly the older generation (30 or over). They’re less likely to buy the downloads like the rest of us. Got to hand it to Susan….she’s killing everybody in her path. There’s a new diva in town!!!

    @Giselle, I co-sign with drtash, and have to say that it’s probably being bought as a Christmas gift for the parents and grandparents too.

    Honestly, Chris sold more than i thought. Let’s face it, his album tanked but selling 100k less than a year after a well known domestic abuse case is impressive.

    However, i didn’t really see Timbaland’s album flopping but then again, it wasn’t working with a hut lead single or anything.

    @ KELDRICK, what do you mean time will tell? LOL.
    The story has been told, she’s killing all of them!
    Hype doesn’t sell 5 million CD’s, talent does. Maybe it’s not your style but that doesn’t mean it isn’t good.

    It’s great to have a CD out there that you can give to your parents or grandparents that’s not laced with profanity or sexual language. Most of the CDs out there have some profound language on them that I don’t want my parents to hear. I am glad this is one that I are not ashamed to have them listen to. I got several for stocking stuffers for the older crowd, old gal got a good voice. I helped a few of the brothers out, too.

    How can a woman name Susan with learning disability, overweight, unattractive by today standard along with a Italian blind man killing rest of cool looking and smart singers in the chart? What a world has become?

    Al, years ago an awful lot of singers weren’t all that attractive, but they had voices that people wanted to hear. They didn’t have to dance around the stange half naked, performing vulgar acts, and lip synching. It’s really getting out of control, to the point that it’s even disgusting a lot of young people.
    The baby boomers make up a huge percent of the population, and they still like music too, and they’ll spend money when they hear something they like.
    Susan Boyle really does have a voice. I’m anxious to see what her next CD will be like and if they’ll put her into a certain genre. She’s pretty versatile.
