Everyone’s Buying Their Mom Susan Boyle’s CD for Christmas

As we predicted last week, Susan Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream crossed the double-platinum barrier this week. Amazingly, her record sales rose for the second consecutive week (!), as consumers snapped up some 661,000 copies of her album of cover songs over the last seven days (up from 582K last week). This means there's probably a pretty good chance that Mom will have multiple copies of Boyle's record sitting underneath the Christmas tree. [Billboard]
