Melbourne, Dec 29 (ANI): Susan Boyle has taken Aussie music industry by storm after her album ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ went on to enjoy the highest seven-day sales ever seen in the country.

The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ star sold almost 165,000 albums last week, breaking the record of Guy Sebastian’s 163,000 sales at Christmas 2004.

The Scottish singer, who burst to global fame earlier this year, has set another Australian chart milestone - she is the only act to sell over 100,000 albums in two consecutive weeks.

‘I Dreamed a Dream’ has sold close to 450,000 copies since hitting stores five weeks ago and is eight times platinum.

Last week, Boyle outsold the rest of the top five albums in Australia combined, reports the Herald Sun.

Her album will be the biggest seller of 2009, as its pre-Christmas sales pushing it ahead of Pink’s ‘Funhouse’.

Australia’s second choice at Christmas was Michael Buble with almost 73,000 sales of his album, ‘Crazy Love’. (ANI)
