  1. FYI – Billboard does not count from Jan 1 to Dec 31 in a given year. They end the “year” a few weeks early. Technically, I Dreamed A Dream sold 6.1 million copies globally from Nov 24 to Dec 31, 2009.

  2. Actually the Billboard number is for US sales only. Worldwide, Ms. Boyle sold six million copies of her album ‘I Dreamed a Dream.’ Source:

  3. Susan’s album sold 3.1 million copies in the U.S. alone, but worldwide she sold 6 million in only 6 weeks time. See the United Global Album chart for worldwide sales. Here is the web site: Amazing!!!

  4. CORRECTION, Susan Boyle’s album “I DREAMED A DREAM” sold over 3.1 millions in US alone, it had sold over 6.0 miliions worldwide at the end of December, 2009. I am a huge fan of Susan, and I have been keeping track of her progress. Please correct your information. Thank You!!

  5. Currently as of March 13, 2010 Susan Boyle’s CD has sold AT LEAST 7,471,639. We at Susan’s Fan Site have confirmed this many sales, but there are countries (such as China) for which we have no information so Sales are indeed higher than this. Furthermore, I Dreamed A Dream has gone Platinum 53 times in 16 countries and Gold in a further 17 countries – in less than 4 months. Susan has also remained in the top 10 on the Global Chart for 14 weeks now.
