SuBo Beats Rihanna On The Charts!

| Filed under: RihannaAnglophiliaMusic MinuteKeith UrbanTaylor SwiftBusiness Blitz

susan boyle is number 1 on charts again

Susan Boyle is unstoppable!

Looks like SuBo will remain #1 on album charts for the second week in a row, with a projected 300k albums sold.

Rihanna's album will debut at a surprisingly low 180-190k sales, putting her below Jackie Evancho, an alum of both Britain's Got Talent and America's Got Talent, who is projected to get 270-290k album sales this week.

If she doesn't watch out, Rihanna may actually landed in fourth place, below Taylor Swift, despite the fact that RiRi has 2 hit singles out from her album. Ouch!

Keith Urban and The Rascal Flatts will battle it out for the next couple of positions the chart, and are projected to end up in the 170-180k range.

We're def surprised to see Rihanna with such a weak debut, but we've gotta hand it to Susan Boyle for keeping her numbers so high!

Do U think Rihanna's numbers will improve? Or do U think it's not looking good for this album?

    That Rihanna reign just won't let up…. oops.



  2. 2

    The charts for this week aren't even out yet until tomorrow, and you're already trying to speculate on next week's?



  3. 3

    rihanna debuting surprisingly low? im not surprised one bit. all the promo she did for this album proved one thing, she cant sing. IMO it hurt her more then anything. and as a whole the album is shitty. maybe she'll realize people are over her little slut bot thing.



  4. 4

    Rihanna's album Loud is amazing! Fuck SuBo! People need to go buy it!!!



  5. 5

    Uh didn't her album just come out YESTERDAY? How in the fuck are you saying where she'll fall in the charts. YOu are just hating because she called your precious tran ny GAGA generic.

    REMEMBER WHEN SUBO WON SHE HAD NEVER BEEN KISSED BEFORE!!
    IN AN ARTICLE IN A MAGAZINE THAT CAME OUT ON MONDAY SHE SAYS:
    NOBODY HAS STILL KISSED ME. I FEEL HEARTBROKEN BUT WHAT CAN I DO?
    A FRIEND OF MINE BOUGHT ME A DILDO 13 INCH FOR MY BIRTHDAY.
    I DIDNT KNOW WHAT IT WAS SO I PUT BUTTER ON IT A WACKED IT UP MY ASS!
    IT WAS THE MOST WONDERFUL THING I HAVE EXPERIENCED.
    EVERY NIGHT I JAM IT UP MY ASS BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP AND I HAVE BEAUTIFUL DREAMS, SHE SAYS!!
    WE SAY, YOU GO GIRL!!!

    I love Rihanna's music but, this album is not her best! You said that the music was So much better then Rated R. But the first to singles from the album, sorry to say this SUCK! She does not even sound like she is trying to sing on this album. Britney Spears made a better CD when she fucked up and bald!



  8. 8

    ? people still care about susan boyle?



  9. 9

    Rihanna debuting surprisingly low? Didn't her last album debut with 181K sold and you said that was low, yet it was her highest debut week ever?



  10. 10

    What's really funny about this is that SuBo couldn't care less about numbers and for that reason I'm thrilled that she's where she is.

    Re: DanielDax – Perez also printed reported all first week sales that week and interestingly forgot to mention Rihanna since she debuted higher than Lady Gaga by 20,000 copies. Perez is very selective and since Rihanna doesn't like him, he tries to make her sound bad…Example: He tweeted a congrats to Katy Perry for having three top ten hits when "Firework" hit the top ten…The very same week Rihanna's"What's My Name" hit #1 on the Hot 100 and "Only Girl" was sitting tight at #4…He showed her NO love.

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – You're dumb…LOUD is getting great reviews…It's not the critical acclaim Rated R recieved, but this is a pop album…Sort of a back to basics album for Rihanna…So regaurdless of what YOU say about the album, it has hits and will be a perfectly decent pop album. And you can't say an album sucks if you haven't given it a chance. Did you buy it and listen to it on a good system and in a good mood? Probably not. You probably streamed shitty versions online and listened to about 30 sec. of each song. That's not called listening and reviewing an album. I bought it today and it sounds amazing through my car system.

    Re: Mrpink1990 – "Only Girl" was praised by critics who say it's her best vocals to date…Hater!!



  14. 14

    That Subo even exists is so sad…

    Perez, I didn't even know Rhianna's cd was available this week. I thought it was next week. SUBO outselling her doesn't surprise me and in a way it is great! People actually want to hear and buy cds from people who can really sing.
    I think Rhi was pretty much over after all that Chris Brown situation. She wasn't an empowered woman, she was weak. This country does not like weakness in our celebrities. We love reading about them but not investing money in them.

    Rihanna looks like an extra-terrestrial parrot now. I can't just understand these singers why they have to out-do each other in the style department and they are looking more trashy - Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kesha. They should just migrate to Pluto.



  18. 18

    Susan Boyle appeals to a much larger and often forgotten crowd. Of course her numbers will be awesome. Plus she has great talent to boot.



  19. 19

    LMFAO!

    Susan beat her last time for rated r too!



  20. 20

    CUDA POWER! heh

    Re: curiousred

    That you exist, is just nauseating.

    Re: goddess_maren

    Who cares about you? You are a nonentity. You will never be anything more than a sub-mental tapeworm.



  23. 23

    the charts mean nothing to cultural impact anymore.
    Rihanna's audience is young and tech savy and will get it through other means. Susan Boyle's audience will be more apt to buy one.

    Think a little. sheesh.



  24. 24

    I love Susan Boyle's new album "The Gift", her voice is just amazing. It is just something that you want to listen to all the time. Not to mention her story that she had overcome her disability, and achieved her dream. What a story. I am addicted, following Susan's story and listening to her voice is just like taking drugs. You just won't be able to control it.



  25. 25

    if u think subo is talented,u re fucking retarded. All her songs are goddamn covers. Talk abaout shallow people who buy this shit. Not surprised about rihanna too-she will always be a singles artist.



  26. 26

    Who the hell is buying the Susan Boyle records?



  27. 27

    Well people are waking up and rewarding talent and singers, not pop creations that cannot sing.
    Bravo to Susan and Jackie.
    Rihanna should take some fucking singing lessons, bitch is a JOKE.

    Re: stefystef

    People with larger brains than yours.

    Re: dodgyend

    They're not ALL 'covers.' Anyway, does she have to sing a lot of crappy new material written by low-class, illiterate imbeciles? The kind of stuff you probably love to listen to?



  30. 30

    I bought Jackie Evancho.



  31. 31

    Re: Mrpink1990 – actually when Britney Spears was fucked up she produced her BEST CD ever.



  32. 32

    She was never a huge album seller. GGGB is her most succcessful album, but it didn't even debut with blockbuster first week sales.



  33. 33

    Ri Ri needs to come out and entertain! Her music, though at times mediocre, is not the problem, nor is her image. It's the fact the girl really has no talent and instead of her taking every opportunity to present herself as though she is on a catwalk, girlfriend needs to get vocal lessons and dance training so that she can give her fans their money's worth. She doesn't even try, if she doesn't want to be another Ashanti or J-lo, and wants to be taken seriously like Beyonce she needs to step her game up, pronto!

    susan boyle deserves to be no.1, rihanna is ok, but a bit overrated … "what's my name" is NOT a good song, "only girl" is beautiful, but susan boyle has THE voice :) … and rihanna said that she is about to challenge MJ's Thriller … maybe lady gaga's "born this way" will be the new Thriller :)



  35. 35

    you can't compare the two….two completely different albums,they aren't even in the same categories.



  36. 36

    Not my type of music but she has a lovely voice.



  37. 37

    Re: truthabove

    LOL at your dildo story!



  38. 38

    Re: Rubber Rat – THANK YOU!! I PROMISE IT IS TRUE :)



  39. 39

    Perez, do your research. Rihanna's albums have never had spectacular first-week sales. It's the fact that people consistently buy them that makes them successful. Some artists have HUGE first-week sales but after a few weeks they're way down the chart. Lady GaGa's "The Fame" went 3x Platinum by consistent sales, not huge weekly sales. Rihanna will do just fine…



  40. 40

    susan has the advantage that her audience doesnt steal music off the internet. im sure rihanna's album has been easily illegally downloaded cuz the american people are too cheap to buy a cd nowadays.



  41. 41

    Am just glad somebody with talent is finally getting the attention they deserve.



  42. 42

    I bought SuBo and Jackie CD.
