Another Possible Best-Seller of the Year in the UK for Susan Boyle?

ould overnight British superstar Susan Boyle have the top album in the UK two years in a row?

It's very possible, according to Billboard.


Boyle just released her second album, The Gift, which debuted at the top spot on the UK charts. Her first album, I Dreamed a Dream, which was a Christmas album, was the best-selling album of 2009 in the UK even though it was released in November. Not bad at all for a newbie.

Now that she's (finally!) collaborating with Lou Reed, who knows what sorts of bigger and better things her good fortune will bring. If she can make a duet with Simon Cowell or Piers Morgan happen though, I'll definitely buy an album.
