Susan Boyle - Boyle Is Britain's Best-selling Export

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 (10) with 1.8 million sales - shifted 800,000 copies, as did Lungs by Florence and the MAChine.
