SuBo’s “Gift” is already a big hit.
Music Lovers can’t wait to hear Scottish songbird Susan Boyle belt out some Yuletide carols. Boyle is putting the finishing touches on her new album, her first holiday release, and the compilation’s already shot to the top of Amazon.com’s Bestsellers chart!
Susan Boyle’s The Gift doesn’t hit music retailers until Nov. 9, but the LP arrived for pre-sale for $9.99 on Wednesday and fans have catapulted the disc to the top of Amazon.com Music’s No. 1 Bestseller List — just a nose ahead of Bob Dylan’s The Witmark Demos Collection. The Gift has even leapfrogged fourth-quarter efforts by Taylor Swift, Eric Clapton, and Neil Young.
Boyle’s 2009 debut I Dreamed a Dream broke records as Amazon Music’s largest CD pre-order ever. The disc went on to be the second bestselling album of the year, falling behind only Taylor Swift’s award-winning sophomore set, Fearless.
“It’s the season of Susan and it’s a pretty significantly number one. The Gift has leapfrogged fourth-quarter efforts by Swift, Eric Clapton and Neil Young on the bestsellers tally, with only pre-orders of Bob Dylan’s The Witmark Demos coming close to Boyle’s sales,” Amazon’s Director of Music Craig Pape told Billboard.com last week.
The new album features festive favorites like “O Holy Night” and “The First Noel,” as well as a performance of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” – a song the talent show star was reportedly banned from performing on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent. Boyle will also duet with a New York State firefighter, who won an online competition to share the spotlight with Susan.
