The best-selling recording artist of 2009 is...

On Thursday, Alicia Keys will enter the Billboard Hot 200 album chart at number 2 with an impressive 405,000 units of her latest album, The Element of Freedom. Who kept her off the top spot? Why, it's none other than the same artist who has occupied the top spot for the past for the past four weeks - Susan Boyle. In the UK, Boyle's debut album, I Dreamed a Dream, has already been declared the biggest album of the year. In the US, that honor belongs to Taylor Swift's Fearless....but at the rate SuBo is going (this week, her album shifted 659,000 units), she could very well topple Taylor....and to think, this woman was completely unknown a year ago! What a difference a year makes!
