Weekly Album Sales (12/23-29) Boyle's Well That Ends Well

HITS Daily didn't have their full chart today for some reason, but here's the top 10. Album sales seem to be on the rise across the board. We'll see if it's just because of Christmas in a week or so.


Columbia's Unlikely Diva Tops Final Year-End Chart, Challenges Swift for 2009's Best Seller

December 29, 2009

If this is a Dream, the record industry probably doesn't want to wake up.
Syco/Columbia's Susan Boyle is the undisputed Q4 winner, as she spends the final week of 2009 at #1, adding another 510-520k to her total, sending it over 3 million, putting her neck-and-neck with Big Machine's Taylor Swift album Fearless, #5 this week, moving 210-220k, for the year's best-seller.

Geffen artist Mary J. Blige is the top debut at #2, with 330-340k for her new album, Stronger With Each Tear.

J/RMG's Alicia Keys, who debuted last week at #2 with her new album Element of Freedom, stands at #3 with 270-280k, down just slightly from last week's 406k and a two-week total of close to 700k.

Decca's own version of Santa Claus, Andrea Bocelli's My Christmas album, keeps on giving at #4 with another 260-270k, while Swift rounds out the Top 5.

Interscope's Lady Gaga, making a strong Grammy stretch run (where she will be up against fellow teen diva Swift and veteran Beyonce), is at #6 with 150-160k, in a virtual dead heat with Island/IDJ's teen heartthrob Justin Bieber.

19/Arista Nashville's Carrie Underwood (140-150k) along with Reprise's Michael Buble and a debut from Cash Money/Universal Motown's Young Money (both at 130-140k) complete the Top 10.

Epic's Michael Jackson's This Is It (110-120k) is followed by Columbia's Glee, Vol. 2, Aftermath/Shady/ Interscope's Eminem Relapse: Refill, Interscope's Lady Gaga The Fame Monster and The Black Eyed Peas, all at 100-110k.
