Taylor Swift will start 2011 as she ended 2010 – at the top of the U.S. album charts.
Fans picked up her Speak Now album as last-minute Christmas gifts, giving the 2010 release a sales boost – and keeping it at the top of the Billboard 200 countdown for a second week.

Susan Boyle’s The Gift – the album Swift toppled last week – stays at two on the new chart, while the Glee Christmas record jumps up two spots to three.

Jamie Foxx scores the week’s highest debut – his new release Best Night Of My Life enters the chart at six with 144,000 sales.
