Susan Boyle Tops Whitney Houston as Amazon Bestseller

Britain’s Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle is bigger than Whitney Houston. Or the Beatles. Well, at least on she is. The 48-year-old Scottish singer reached number one on the charts this week, smashing right by comeback diva Whitney Houston in sales, even though her album isn’t even out yet!


Susan Boyle, who became an international phenomenon after her audition on Britain’s Got Talent, only ended up finishing second place in the competition. But winning a TV reality competition is a pale victory compared to topping an album sales chart when your CD isn’t even going to be out for another three months.

Susan Boyle’s debut album, I Dreamed a Dream, has blown away everyone from Whitney Houston to the Beatles on, even though her album is only currently available for pre-order. That’s got to hurt a bit for poor Whitney, whose new comeback album just came out this week.


Susan Boyle managed to top the bestseller list despite the fact that very little is known about the contents of her new album. The sum of what we know so far is what Britain’s Got Talent and American Idol judge Simon Cowell thinks about the recording. “She sounds fantastic on record,” Cowell told People. “She’s so good, the album is not just going to be show tunes. We’re going to take our time with this.”

Boyle’s debut CD is due to be released on November 24, just in time for the holidays.

One thought on “Susan Boyle Tops Whitney Houston as Amazon Bestseller”

  1. This is biggest bull every written- when Susan can sell over 170 million albums/singles then she can be bigger than Whitney. She has how many albums now- 0

    This writer is a flack! Fact, Whitney’s ‘I Look to You’ is set to be the #1 album in the Us on the Billboard charts next week, it was top 2 on Amazon charts for over 2 week and #1 for nearly 2wks- now that Whitney’s album is in stores, more folks are going to buy it in stores now.

    This ‘writer’ is just using Whitney’s name for attention- lets see her debut in the usa with over 300k albums sold which is what Whitney is projected to see next week.
    Whitney is also the #1 album on USa Itunes, Canada and Germany
    Load of crap!
