NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ Syco Music /Columbia Records) - Syco Music and its US label partner Columbia Records are currently dominating the US Billboard album charts with Susan Boyle holding on to the No. 1 spot for the second week and the label's latest and youngest signing Jackie Evancho achieving the No. 2 album position.

Susan Boyle's album 'The Gift' has remained at the top spot for a second week selling over 637,000 in TOTAL to date. And 10 year old Jackie Evancho, Syco/Columbia's latest signing, debuted at number 2 this week selling over 260,000 albums.
