Video: Happy 16th birthday, Millennium (@BackstreetBoys)

by | May 18, 2015 | History, Videos

On May 18, 1999, the Backstreet Boys released their third international release (second U.S.), “Millennium” and shattered weekly record sales. “Millennium” entered the Billboard 200 at number one, where it remained for 10 non-consecutive weeks. It sold 1,134,000 copies in its first week of release, shattering the previous Nielsen SoundScan record held by Garth Brooks for single-week record sales.

As of October 2014, the album stands as the fifth best selling album in the United States of the SoundScan era with 12,250,000 units sold.
