    Sam Smith's new Bond theme has just become the first Bond song to reach #1 on the UK Charts - ever. And so there's much ado about Smith 'making history'. So - I just had to have a look back, with this thread - to remember the many times Susan Boyle has 'made history' - and the majority of her achievements still stand today.

    Dazzling, truly!

    Bill, do you have the "Susan Boyle - She Dared to Dream" poster without Susan in the front? It's a marvelous concept, that she's looking at it from where she was in 2009, but I wondered if you also had it somewhere with just the poster?

    Hi Amber Duke - no, I never made it in any form but with Susan 'looking out at her future' - at least that was the concept!

    One of the purposes of this thread is to record Susan's outstanding achievements and records of note.

    The other, of course, is to try to keep track of anyone who may break one of her records.

    Sometimes, by headlines, it appears someone has - for example Ariana Grande - the American press had many headlines about how she 'matched' Susan Boyle's achievement of 2 #1 albums in one year. Well - she did - but ONLY in the USA. The big deal about Susan in 2010 was that she DID IT IN BOTH USA AND UK at the same time. This, Ms Grande did not do, so Susan's record still stands as the only female to ever do it.

    Now we have to be looking at Adele of course. No question she will have another massive album with '25'. However, when it comes to Susan, only a couple of her records may be affected....

    The first is 'Fastest Selling Album by a UK female' (one of her 6 Guinness records). This one Adele is bound to beat.

    The other is 'Most pre-sales GLOBALLY in Amazon history. If you went just by headlines, you'd already see 'Adele most presales at Amazon ever' - but if you actually read the articles, to date Adele has been declared 'Most pre sales in UK and USA. But not globally, at least yet. If anyone reads she has achieved that, please post a link here so we can make note of it. Otherwise Susan's record stands.

    None of her others noted on Page 1 can be affected by Adele's current album.

    I've updated the poster/image of achievements on Post #1 to reflect what we know of AWW charting to date, will put it here as well. Added a note under that AWW was released in USA without any promotion so reached only #150. No World Charts have released yet, though it will take a miracle! This is the first album Susan's released under the new chart methods where they include streaming, downloading and digital sales.



    I'll update it if and as needed.
