  Fastest-Selling Album Ever
Music
Posted by Jack Mingo on 2000/12/10 17:57:14 US/Eastern

News reports say that the Beatles' "1" is the fastest-selling album ever. Strange in a way, since it's just a greatest-hits thing, with nothing that hadn't been released before. Still, it beat the former record holder, boy band 'N Sync's "No Strings Attached" which had sold 2.4 million copies in its first week of sales in March. The Beatles' numbers? 3.6 million in the album's first week, 12 million in its first three weeks. At this rate, it's on track to become the best-selling album of all time, a record currently held by the Eagles' Greatest Hits (26 million sold).

    Fastest selling is different to best selling. Best selling would be total sales over a long period of time. Fastest selling is how many records are sold in a short period after initial release... i think.
