Susan Boyle - Boyle's Gift Is Still Giving At The Top Of The U.s. Album Charts
SUSAN BOYLE remains the queen of the U.S. album charts - her new album THE GIFT has scored a second week at number one.
The singing Scot also lands a rare second-week sales increase from her number one debut a week ago (17Nov10).
The album rocketed to the top with 318,000 sales last week, but it has since shifted 335,000 copies.
Britain's Got Talent contestant Boyle is in good company at the top of the new Billboard countdown - America's Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho, 10, lands at two with O Holy Night.
The two festive-themed albums top a brand new top five with Rihanna's Loud arriving at three, Josh Groban's Illuminations at four and Born Free by Kid Rock at five.
Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, rapper Nelly and the Glee cast also debut new albums in the top 10.
In the U.S. pop charts, Rihanna rebounds to top the Billboard Hot 100 with Only Girl (In the World), becoming the first artist since Usher in 2004 to score four number ones in a calendar year.
And Gwyneth Paltrow should seriously consider a career as a pop star after claiming the singles chart's highest debut at 11 with her Glee rendition of Cee-Lo Green's Forget You.
