Susan Boyle Bumps Taylor Swift from Top of Billboard Chart

by at . Comments

Taylor Swift is reportedly holding on to a handsome man these days. And it's a good thing, too, because she's lost her grip on the top Billboard 200 ranking.

After spending two weeks at number-one with "Speak Now," Swift finds herself in second place today, due to the release of "The Gift," a holiday album from Susan Boyle. There really is no stopping this Scottish sensation.

"Singing is the best job in the world, it really is fantastic. I'm just an ordinary woman who showed a bit of determination and this is what has happened. To have a second No.1 album is wonderful and something I never expected," the crooner said upon hearing the news.

Boyle's "The Gift" - which features such classics as "The First Noel" and "O Holy Night" - sold more than 317,600 copies in its first week.

Can it keep this momentum going? Insiders think so. Even with Rihanna's new album hitting stores yesterday, sources believe Boyle is poised to top the charts again next week. It's been a sincerely incredible ride for Susan.
