SUSAN Boyle will be laughing all the way to the bank when her second album hits the shops.
The Scottish singer — who shot to fame on music mogul Simon Cowell‘s UK TV talent show Britain’s Got Talent — will reportedly pocket a whopping $28 MILLION this year when she releases the follow-up to her debut record I Dreamed A Dream.
Boyle has already made $8 million from her first record.
Another $8m is due in further royalties and merchandising from the album, which sold over 8.5million copies and topped charts worldwide, sources said last night.
And Boyle is set to earn a further $12 million from her new album, which will be out for Christmas.
“Her success has been phenomenal,” a source told Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper. “The second album could be even bigger than the first.
Susan — who celebrates her 49th birthday on April 1 — is already putting her money to good use — she’s set to splash out $500,000 on a new house.
The Wild Horses singer is said to be about to pay the huge sum for the property in her hometown of Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland, and the 1,700 sq ft home boasts five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a double garage.
The house is also eco-friendly as it comes complete with solar panels to part-generate its electricity supply.
It had been reported the 48-year-old singer was looking for an apartment in London after being advised to move to the UK capital by executives at her record label, Cowell’s SyCo.
Susan — who was living on benefits before her Britain’s Got Talent appearance — was recommended to leave her current one-bedroom council house in Blackburn after it was broken into in January.
