Nadine Coyle’s hopes of competing with Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl Cole with a successful solo career have been shattered, after failing to make it into the top 40.
Coyle’s debut solo album Insatiable only made it onto the charts at number 47, while Cheryl Cole’s Messy Little Raindrops fell to number three after being pushed out of the top spot by Susan Boyle. SuBo’s album The Gift shot to number one, followed by Bon Jovi’s Greatest Hits album.
Taylor Swift and two of her country peers top the Billboard 200 albums chart this week. Swift’s Speak Now again reigns supreme. In its second week it experienced a substantial but expected drop off from its one million copy debut, selling 320,000 albums. Jason Aldean‘s My Kinda Party opens at No. 2 with 193,000 records sold, while Sugarland‘s once No. 1 The Incredible Machine drops one spot to No. 3 with 60,000 sets moved.
