So, I still haven’t managed to invest in anything. Thank God.
Anyway, the best selling album of 2000 was ‘N Sync’s No Strings Attached. It sold over 10 million copies. The Backstreet Boys sold “only” 8 million copies of Black and Blue, but combined with the sales of their other albums, they also sold over 10 million copies in 2000.
But neither was the best selling group in 2000. Any guess who it was?
The Beatles. They sold 18 million albums in 2000. Their newest album, 1, a collection of #1 singles, sold 5 million. So even if they hadn’t released a new album, they still would have sold more albums than ‘N Sync and the Backstreet Boys this year. And they broke up 30 years ago. I don’t know, that’s stunning to me.
