Susan Boyle Rules US and UK Charts—Again Only the Beatles and Monkees have done it in a year By Nick McMaster, Newser Staff Posted Nov 18, 2010 5:43 PM CST 9 comments Comments Singer Susan Boyle waves to the crowd after performing on stage at Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, prior to the Papal Mass Thursday, Sept. 16 2010. (AP Photo/Chris Clark) (Newser) – Susan Boyle has the No. 1 album on both the US and UK charts for the second time in one year. It's a sales metric achieved only twice before—by the Beatles in 1969 and the Monkees in 1967—making Boyle the first woman to pull it off. The new album is The Gift, following up on her earlier I Dreamed a Dream. The honor will likely be short-lived, however, notes the Guardian. Take That's Progress looks set to be the UK's No. 1 next week.
