BGT makes SuBo an International star with her latest album coming top in UK and US

Singer Susan Boyle has achieved great success with her latest album, which has reached the top spot in the US and the UK since it’s release at the weekend.

The Scottish singer is only the third act to achieve that feat twice in a year.

Only the Monkees, in 1967, and the Beatles, in 1969, have simultaneously topped both charts twice in the same 12 months, Columbia Records said.

The album, titled the The Gift, sold 318,000 copies in the US – with her last album (I Dreamed A Dream) selling 701,000 copies in its first week, going on to top the Billboard chart for six weeks in all.

The Gift went straight to the top of the UK chart, knocking Cheryl Cole’s second solo album down to two.

Simon Cowell, whose Britain’s Got Talent TV show made Boyle a star in 2009, said “She has once again defied the odds.”
