Susan Boyle projected to overtake Kanye West, beat Black Eyed Peas, ‘Glee’

A certain Scottish singing star is expected to climb back on top of the charts this week, at least if we are to believe the newest music industry projections. After falling at #3 with her Christmas album “The Gift” last week, former “Britain’s Got Talent” contestant Susan Boyle is anticipated to be back at the top for the next sales frame. Her final number, according to reports, is said to be somewhere close to the 263,000 albums she sold this time around.

So who will fall to the wayside thanks to Susan? Even though the Black Eyed Peas opened to over 300,000 copies sold for previous album “The E.N.D.,” their new “Beginning” is only projected at the moment to sell somewhere between 100,000 and 125,000 copies — the newest “Glee” track featuring Darren Criss’ rendition of “Teenage Dream” will fall somewhere within that frame.

Meanwhile, Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” is expected to decline below Susan after spending last week at the top — the same goes for Nicki Minaj with “Pink Friday.” Although an exact number for these two artists is still unknown, a realistic window looks to be an opening between 150,000 and 225,000 more sold.

What do you make of Susan’s long-lasting success, and how much do you attribute it to her older target demographic? As always, stay tuned for more news.
