    BOYLE'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL
    Columbia's Unlikely Diva Tops Final Year-End Chart, Challenges Swift for 2009's Best Seller

    December 29, 2009

    If this is a Dream, the record industry probably doesn't want to wake up.

    Syco/Columbia's Susan Boyle is the undisputed Q4 winner, as she spends the final week of 2009 at #1, adding another 510-520k to her total, sending it over3 million, putting her neck-and-neck with Big Machine's Taylor Swift album Fearless, #5 this week, moving 210-220k, for the year's best-seller.

    Geffen artist Mary J. Blige is the top debut at #2, with 330-340k for her new album, Stronger With Each Tear.

    J/RMG's Alicia Keys, who debuted last week at #2 with her new album Element of Freedom, stands at #3 with 270-280k, down just slightly from last week's406k and a two-week total of close to 700k.

    Decca's own version of Santa Claus, Andrea Bocelli's My Christmas album, keeps on giving at #4 with another 260-270k, while Swift rounds out the Top 5.

    Interscope's Lady Gaga, making a strong Grammy stretch run (where she will be up against fellow teen diva Swift and veteran Beyonce), is at #6 with150-160k, in a virtual dead heat with Island/IDJ's teen heartthrob Justin Bieber.

    19/Arista Nashville's Carrie Underwood (140-150k) along with Reprise's Michael Buble and a debut from Cash Money/Universal Motown's Young Money(both at 130-140k) complete the Top 10.

    Epic's Michael Jackson's This Is It (110-120k) is followed by Columbia's Glee, Vol. 2, Aftermath/Shady/ Interscope's Eminem Relapse: Refill,Interscope's Lady Gaga The Fame Monster and The Black Eyed Peas, all at 100-110k.

    Honestly I'm glad. Hopefully whatever new trends pop up next year don't suck.

    Refill did pretty good for a rerelease though. I think YM did less than I expected but it probably was to be expected. I'm still holding off on seeing ifHip Hop can still sell until this Drake album comes out. It took them too long to release that album. I just don't get when a album has a song as big asEvery Girl they just let the buzz die down instead of dropping the album immediately after a song becomes a hit. Maybe the album wasn't done but don'tdrop Every Girl until the album is done.

    I thought We Are Young Money was atleast going to do 400K considering how big their buzz is.


    Because 95% of these rappers are only in it for the numbers. If they dont get the numbers they want, they'll keep trying. If the # looks the same,they'll quit which means no more new rap songs.

    that's true only if you're a vet in rap .. if you're a up and coming youngin ... outside of ringtones you're barely seeing money either way[sales or tours] ... so as far as I see it single/ringtone leads to show money which then leads to buzz then mixtape then album sales
