Susan Boyle Tops Amazon Chart With November Release

Preorders for her forthcoming album, I Dreamed a Dream, put her ahead of Whitney Houston and the Beatles on best-sellers list.

Although "Britain's Got Talent" contestant Susan Boyle's album isn't due to drop until November, it appears the singer is already climbing to the top of the charts.

Set for release on November 24, Boyle's debut album, I Dreamed a Dream, has already jumped to the top of the Amazon charts, thanks to an overwhelming number of preorders. The album's release date was announced just a few days ago and it seems fans just can't wait.

The frenzy even has Boyle beating out Whitney Houston and the Beatles for the top spot. Boyle took some time out of the "Britain's Got Talent" tour in July to record some songs for the album, about which Simon Cowell commented, "She sounds fantastic on record. She's so good, the album is not just going to be show tunes. We're going to take our time with this," according to People.

Earlier this year, Boyle became a sensation with fans when she sang a stirring rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from "Les Misérables" on the British show, on which she finished in second place. Soon after gaining notoriety, however, Boyle became overwhelmed by the spotlight and had a temporary meltdown.

But Boyle seems to be back on track to top the charts, competing with other Cowell protégés including Carrie Underwood, Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Leona Lewis, who are also set to release new music in November.
