Susan Boyle beats Beyonce Knowles and Lady GaGa as her record is named the best-selling album of 2009 in the U.K.
Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle has fought off competition from Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles to land the best-selling album of 2009 in the U.K. "I Dreamed a Dream" was only released in November 2009, but has already sold more than 1.5 million copies in Britain and has dominated the charts worldwide.
GaGa's debut "The Fame" was the second biggest seller, with Michael Buble's "Crazy Love" coming in third. "The E.N.D." by the Black Eyed Peas and Kings of Leon's "Only by the Night" rounded out the top five sellers in Britain in 2009. Beyonce was only in seventh place with "I Am...Sasha Fierce".
However, GaGa was triumphant in the best-selling singles rundown - her second song release, "Poker Face", was crowned the top track of 2009, while her debut, "Just Dance", was third. "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas was second, with Cheryl Cole's "Fight for This Love" and "The X Factor" winner Joe McElderry's cover of Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" rounding out the top five singles of the past 12 months.
