SUSAN BOYLE STAY SNATCHING WIGS....HANDS AKEYS HER FIRST #2 ALBUM IN CAREER
The numbers for this weeks chart are in from HitsDoubleDaily, which see Alicia Keys exceeding sales expectations with her fourth album The Element of Freedom selling 405k to land at #2 on the Billboard 200.
However the high numbers weren’t good enough to beat Billboard’s baddest bitch Susan Boyle who sold another 659k of her debut I Dreamed a Dream, bringing her US total album sales to 2.4 million in only four weeks.
The Element of Freedom’s failure to miss the #1 position on the charts makes it’s Alicia’s first album to do so, with her MTV Unplugged album even managing to accomplish the feat back in 2005. Alicia is now even with Britney Spears for the most consecutive #1 albums since debut, both with four each.
