Despite having a big taste for some Black Eyed Peas, Canadians indulged in the Christmas cheer of Susan Boyle's latest offering this week.
Her Yuletide disc, "The Gift," moved from No. 2 into the No. 1 spot this week, selling 27,600 copies, according to Neilsen SoundScan.
It was a very tight race to the top, however. The Black Eyed Peas latest effort, "The Beginning," landed at No. 2, racking up 27,400 -- a margin of 200 copies.
It marks the first time since 2003's "Elephunk" that the Peas haven't come in at No. 1 -- 2005's "Monkey Business" started on top (18,000 copies sold), and last year's "The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies)" spent it first week there (30,000).
Boyle also grabbed the top spot south of the border, selling 272,000 copies of "The Gift" in the U.S.
Back here, the "Glee Christmas Album" (24,000) had the No. 3 spot locked and loaded, Justin Bieber's "My Worlds Acoustic" spent its second week at No. 4, and Taylor Swift's "Speak Now" came up one notch to No. 5.
Yet another "Glee" set made an appearance on the charts -- "Glee, The Music Volume 4" premiered at No. 6, while Rihanna's loud went the other way, sinking three spots to No. 7.
Rounding out the top 10 was Eric LaPointe's "Le Ciel De Mes Combats" at No. 8, Bon Jovi's "Greatest Hits" at No. 9, and "MuchDance 2011" at No. 10.
Of note, the No. 1 disc in the land last week, Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," dropped down to No. 13 -- not a good second week for the rapper whose latest was recently crowned album of the year by Rolling Stone magazine.
In the U.S., Taylor Swift placed second, followed by Jackie Evancho's "O Holy Night" in third, the "Glee Christmas Album" in fourth, and "Glee, The Music Volume 4" in fifth.
