Taylor Swift, Susan Boyle Remain Music Industry's Top Winners in 2009


British belter Susan Boyle's debut album for Sony's (SNE) Sony Music Entertainment, I Dreamed A Dream, is now in its sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Dream moved 137,000 copies during the final sales week of 2009, making Boyle's final album-sales tally for the calendar year 3.1 million copies to become 2009's no. 2 top-selling album. Not too shabby for a woman who nobody had heard of until this spring, when her dowdy appearance was mocked by Simon Cowell and the audience of Britain's Got Talent before she'd even opened her mouth to sing.
