Besides The Monkeys and The Beatles, Susan Boyle is the first woman to top both the US and UK music charts at the same time with her latest Christmas CD. Whitney Houston never accomplished this either.

Of course adults are buying the CD’s because younger people tend to download and focus on singles.

The music industry and radio has ignored the adult demographic, thus, paid a heavy price – not Boyle though, she demands a big price.

Her first album sold 10+ million records worldwide. The solution? Every music executive should be searching for another Boyle. Sure, she received her press and exposure via Britain’s Got Talent, but the music biz can no longer hinge on reality TV shows.

Taylor Swift’s new album “Speak Now” could sell between 800,000 and 900,000 copies by Sunday, October 31. That’s impressive!

Even though most consumers choose to download digital singles, some artists still create the demand of a physical product. You could easily call those artists the anointed ones because  many international stars cannot sell a million records within one week.
