She takes the title for the second time in a row, thanks to both her debut and sophomore albums which sold over nine million copies.

Susan Boyle is celebrating after she was named the U.K. artist with the most successful album overseas for the second consecutive year. The Scottish singer, who shot to fame after appearing on "Britain's Got Talent" in 2009, sold 3.7 million copies of "The Gift" abroad, while her debut, "I Dreamed a Dream", shifted six million.

Sade's "Soldier of Love" was the second best-selling with 2.3 million, Mumford & Sons' debut "Sigh No More" sold 1.3 million and Muse's "The Resistance" was fourth with a million copies, according to figures compiled by Music Week magazine.

Other acts making Britain proud in the rundown included Phil Collins (Going Back), Gorillaz (Plastic Beach) and James Blunt (Some Kind of Trouble), who all sold 900,000 copies overseas.

Boy band Take That's "Progress" - the best-selling album in the U.K. last year with 1.8 million sales - shifted 800,000 copies, as did "Lungs" by Florence and the Machine.
