  • most cd units sold its first week?

    does any one know which album sold the most units [cd units] its release week ever? also which album [any genre] sold the most ever? and which album has sold the most until now from whenever it was released?

  • #2
    For hip hop it's Eminem with the Marshall Mathers LP movin 1.76 million units in the 1st week...

    The Beatles have sold the most records ever and Rock overall has way more record sales than anything else.

            Fastest Selling Pop Album

            The record for the greatest first week sales of an album in the US is held by *NSYNC. The group, JC Chasez, Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and James Lance Bass, sold 2.41 million copies of their album No Strings Attached when it was released on March 21, 2000.

            Fastest Selling Rap Album

            In 1997, after rapping in a number of groups, Eminem went solo and released his debut album Infinite. Soon after came the Slim Shady EP and then in 1999, Slim Shady LP hit record stores. In May 2000 The Marshall Mathers LP, sold a staggering 1.76 million US copies in its first week of release, becoming the fastest-selling album by a solo artist.

                didn't Michael Jackson's last album not even go platinum? And he called Sony racist because of it? And now he's in the poor house? And so now he has to make new music to pay rent for his mansions?

                        Sorry man but that article is USA only sales.
                        Apparently it's hard to get concrete worldwide sales so there's always a few variances.
                        Thriller is the No 1 and probably will never be beaten. 50 Million.
                        http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/...recordid=50890
                        Jackson probably has another Guinness record for the most expensive album of all time $25 million. Mainly due to Darkchild's Kentucky Fried Chicken bill.2:032
                        Tupac must of had more LP's out than any rapper alive. Not to take anythng from Pac but death sells.
                        Didn't MC Hammer have the biggest selling Hip Hop album worldwide with 17 million copies sold (about 10 Million usa). I just an article about this today (blues and soul magazine)
                        The source doesn't like to talk about Hammer. Like the weird uncle you keep away from the kids.

                            Yes
                            For rapper who isn't a household/international name like Em, Kanye & 50 that is very impressive.

                              www.rockonthenet.com breaks down all of that...

                              NSync has the record cuz they sold over 2 mill their first week. but yea eminem sold the most as a solo artist. britney spears comes close. and The Massacre put up impressive numbers as well...
