Adam Lambert and Susan Boyle are going to be joined at the hip. The debut album for both Adam Lambert and Susan Boyle is going to be the same date, and the reality competition show contestants will be battling against each other for sales. November 24th, 2009 is going to be the big day, when both the Adam Lambert debut album, and the Susan Boyle debut album hit store shelves at the same time. Both artists are expected to do well, but who will fight for #1? I have a strong feeling that the Adam Lambert following is so impressive that this won’t even be close in the end. I fully expect Adam Lambert to not only outsell Susan Boyle 2-to-1, but to be the #1 album on the Billboard charts.
Adam Lambert is of course the runner-up from the last season of American Idol. He not only performed brilliantly, but with some of his live performances, really established himself as a rocker that could be very successful in the industry. Both Adam Lambert and his fans have moved on from American Idol, and are looking for that first big break that will establish him as a solo recording artist. It’s clear that Adam Lambert will perform best in front of a band, but we will see from his first album whether he sticks with rock and roll, or goes more towards a mix of poppy and alternative songs. The world is waiting to hear what he does next.
On the other side of the aisle is Susan Boyle, who placed as the runner-up on her own reality competition show. Susan Boyle was on Britain’s Got Talent, another Simon Cowell show over in Britain, where she gained a huge following for her great voice. Her emotional singing is sure to also bring in a ton of record sales in the end, and it’s clear that she will be a successful artist in the end as well. The key for Susan Boyle will be promotion, and just how many people realize that her album will be on store shelves the same day as the enigmatic Adam Lambert.
For Adam Lambert and Susan Boyle, they have already both established themselves as stars of the music industry. They are both great singers in their own right, and have proven they can generate sales already through pre-sales of their albums. Adam Lambert soared to #1 on the Amazon sales chart with just pre-sales, and Susan Boyle looks to do the same thing very soon. So which record is going to be that “must-have” album of this holiday season? Is it going to be rocker Adam Lambert or Susan Boyle and her wide range of vocal talents? Which one are you planning on buying America? You have until November 24th to make up your mind.
