Susan Boyle Crushes Rihanna, Lady GaGa in Record Sales

According to industry estimates, British songbird Susan Boyle’s debut platter ‘I Dream A Dream’ is set to crush Rihanna’s 1st week sales of her 4th CD by over 800,000 copies! Boyle’s CD set a record in the UK for the biggest 1st week for a debut album in history with over 400K units sold.

Here in America, the Britain’s Got Talent runner up is expected to top that figure with over 600K sold in the first week, giving her an astonishing 1 million albums sold in the first week!

There is something to be said for great music. I guess all those industry fools who think sex sells over talent are rethinking their strategies now.

Meanwhile, Def Jam/IDJ’s Rihanna, ‘Rated R’ is expected to sell just 180-200k here in the states. This, despite the incredible hype attached to Rihanna’s first sit down interview where she discussed her beat down at the hands of convicted woman beater Chris Brown.

Lady GaGa’s Fame Monster EP, a seven-song addition to the deluxe edition available on its own, will do 180-200k.

    Any who I’m going to call up CB and ask him how he feels about this i’m sure he’ll be humble and not steez on these heathens :rofl: …….

    Ithink he’ll sell better than robin because i saw on his twitter reminding people to buy his album….

    @ Krysi…I always laugh when an artist says that nobody is selling just because they didnt. People still go out and purchase several copies of a good cd. I get one for the house, one for the car, and one for that friend who always wants to “borrow” ish. I download, but I will still carry my butt to Target for the right cd.

    I was thinking about buying the Susan CD for my mother’s birthday…guess i wasn’t the only one thinking about buying her music! I saw Rihanna’s cd as well….on sale already too I believe?

    I appreciate the picture choices. although susan looks (well a mess) and rhi rhi looks like she just (well let’s just keep that to the imagination) it clearly depicts a fact: sex can only sell records for so long…but talent sells records forever. And ugly talent beats pretty talentless anyday matter of fact so does ex- coke addict talent (Whitney) and nowadays even full-figured talent is breaking thru ohh and white with soul talent seems to be the new thing as well and “misunderstood artist” talent (GAGA) lol

    CivilEngineer says:

    This is interesting….Rihanna’s cd is actually pretty good but I didn’t purchase it. And if selling it for 99 cents didn’t help her album sales nothing will! I wonder if Alicia’s new album will sell? I’ll probably buy that one!

    @21

    I think Lil wayne is a smart dude and he know what he is doing ….I came to this assumption a little while ago because everyone keeps saying he is a smart dude…….but does he really have anything to show for it…… no…………….

    I was watching an episode of house and this dude who was a genius was drinking cough syrup to dumb himself down….and the first person I thought of was lil wayne(Don’t judge me about my assumption from house it makes sense to me)

    Any way he’ll probably wait to get out of jail again to knock some broad up….if he stays the same

    I remeber Kristin from Laguna Beach and she was a hot mess then during high school. Lauren was too boring so they made the right decision in getting Kristin to spice things up, even if that makes her the “villain” like Jackie Collins in Dallas (dang thats old school)

    missy says:

    @trynabe

    It is no way the Hills is good without LC I can’t bring myself to watch it………..they had the re-runs on Sunday I was going to watch but I just couldn’t give it a chance or get into …….because I can’t stand Kristin fake hip neither heidi and spencer……..

    team LC :cheer1: lol

    missy says:

    The ratings on the hills has dropped since LC left so……LC was boring but when my girl used that line on heidi “I forgive you heidi but I want to forget you”(I am tempted to use that line) I was like my girl LC is a triple OG …… no matter if they were acting and ish I :heart: the old hills the new one is not for me…..

    OMG Susan’s album is great! She does a cover of a Rolling Stones song called Wild Horses and she blows it out of the water. The Stones didn’t do the song half the justice. Susan has a great voice.

    :rofl: at Missy “I forgive you Heidi but I want to forget you”

    My husband was a Hills stan (random for such a macho man) and if got into any fight he would say that and I could not help but to bust out laughing :lol:

    LC was wanting to start her “grown up” life so she wasn’t getting into as much drama anymore.

    Heidi just made me sad for her, the way she went from such a party, happy, carefree young girl to a completely brain washed stepford girlfriend with that fool.

    Girl, he is a straight up mess…..He watches the Real Housewives and the other day after telling me I was watching to much junk tv I caught him eyeing Tabitha’s Salon Make-over when I was watching it. I know that makes him sound a little sweet…but he does not get embarrassed. He told all the guys he works with they could kiss hiss a** cause he likes watching trashing t.v. :lol:

    I :heart: LC too, she was the reason I started watching Laguna Hills and it’s not the same w/o her but it prob would have been too much drama wit LC & Kristen.

    I love watchin’ Holly drunk arse tho! COM-O-DEE!

    @texa…

    No that doesn’t make him sound sweet to me because i use to discuss the hills with this boy in high school and i will not lie i thought he was gay but he watches because he likes white girls..

    Any who at least you can watch your fav shows i have to go to war to watch the hills,real housewives and etc.. in my house … (even in my own room)….Only thing i won’t have to fight to keep the channel on is those VH1 shows “for the love of…..” and Bad girls club

    When i was 12 or 13 in music class this dude turned around and told me i was a 6 out of 10 (homie was smiling and all that ish) and he says don’t be offended that’s high because i don’t like dark skin girls (this boy was dark skin himself) and i was so offended i couldn’t even respond to him …For the rest of the class i was stunned i couldn’t say anything…

    Any who every time this boy keeps telling girls he don’t like dark skin girls and light and bright is right….. We always call him out on this but he is still like this…

    Okay i had to get that off of my chest since we were talking about tiger woods and his self hate for his skin color……

    trynabeme says:

    Missy u know I was reading, like :yes: , okay, and?

    I get it tho. :lolol: I never felt Tiger & as soon as he came up w/ that PR friendly descript of his self I was like, NEXT! Then he married UGLY (well notsopretty) BETTY! Whateva! We don’t wanna claim you either boo!

    I’m a darkie* (Outta my way darkie! © Martin) but I’ve never had any dude tell me anything like that, but some I just felt like they were partial to LSLH.

    *Disclaimer: I don’t go around referring to myself like that….just being ignant :D

    I think that’s pretty good for Lady Gaga. The songs “The Fame” album are still being played and the new songs from “The Fame Monster” are starting to get played. The albums are really close together, so I did not even know the new songs I was hearing was from the new album. I was out shopping and saw the new cd from Lady Gaga, I bought it. Lady Gaga is very talented. You guys should check out her music before she (Stefani Germanotta) became “Lady Gaga”. Rihanna did not even have a good song out to promote or build up hype for her album. Congrats to Susan, that lady can sang!

    aw w w w … Missy, you got let that stuff go, mama. You wouldn’t think it, but I never experienced any issues with move brown chocolate skin color when I was little in New Jersey but when my mom moved us to Puerto Rico when I was entering 7th grade I learned I was not pretty because I was “negrita” (black or dark girl). I did not consider myself pretty until I joined the army and returned stateside. It was crazy now thinking back that I had to learn about racism from my own “people”. :shrugs:

    This is why my daughter is as conceited and stuck up as she is, because a day does not go by that I don’t tell her how beautiful she is and she tells me she wants to be “chocolate” like mami since she is only caramel (due to her daddy being a lite bright :lol: )

    I let that go but I just was reflecting and thinking about high school and that came up I find it actually funny now that I think of it because this dude had some cohanas though…….. because he was telling any dark skin chick he could that don’t even bother you aint my type…& it annoyed more than made me feel bad because this dude was smiling with it like this is a joke & ish but me and the dude was cool couple yrs. later(ironically but we hardly talk any more)….Praise the Lord I didn’t have any issues.

    Glad you found your beauty….because I was thinking to myself glad I have high self esteem…….because if not I would have been in trouble……..And my family also told me i was beautiful(in their own special way) everyday so ain’t nothing wrong with telling her she beautiful…….even if she is conceited…….(though I turned out semi-conceited)And from the words you write you seem to be a very positive person ….

    See your the problem with society now. WHO GIVES A F*CK ABOUT LOOKS? This is the music industry. Its about the music and talent.

    And in both departments Susan WINS HANDS DOWN. It doesnt mean a damn thing to look better then someone cuz theres bound to be someone to look better then your ass. But when YOU’VE GOT TALENT it will ALWAYS prevail. Rihanna can fluant her goodies to she’s blue in the face. It still wont make her talented not make her a better artist.

    Unlike aforementioned clothes horse whose most desirable character in a partner is a large schlong???

    BTW…. SuBo is not all there (for lack of a better phrase). She has a low mental age. Now what does that say for a supposedly fully functional trick acting like special case then being beaten by a real special case????

    rih-rhi is not selling for several reasons one being that people are sick and tired of talentless people. rhi-rhi is cute and she can definately wear some clothes she looks good in anything.

    Kinda on topic: How many albums did Rihanna move the first week for GGGB? I don’t think she ever opened with big numbers. She releases lots of singles which keeps her album selling for a while.
