Susan Boyle tops the charts

By Taryn Thomas

BBC News reported that Susan Boyle, 48, set the record for the highest selling debut by a female artist. The record sales tracker Neilsen SoundScan told BBC News that Boyle's record "I Dreamed A Dream" sold 701,000 copies in the first week in the US.

Boyle was a finalist in the television show "Britain's Got Talent" and beat "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert in sales. Lambert's record debuted at number three.

Boyle even beat Eminem in record sales, CNN said. He held the year's highest record sales title until the release of Boyle's record.
