CSPC: NSYNC Popularity Analysis

  • 7

Pop Odyssey Tour

Original Album Sales – Comments

1997 NSYNC – 12,490,000
1998 Home for Christmas – 3,300,000
2000 No Strings Attached – 15,300,000
2001 Celebrity – 6,840,000

With only three proper studio albums plus one Christmas release, NSYNC sold an insane 37,93 million units. It is almost disappointing when we consider their extraordinary American sales of 32,58 million units with the same records.

Indeed, unlike the Backstreet Boys and Spears, NSYNC never managed to break the global market. They performed alright in countries hugely favorable to teen stars, including Latin America and some Asian areas, but overall their sales abroad have been fairly weak.

  1. So this puts NSYNC at less than half the backstreet boys, which totally makes sense. I always felt their music didn’t quite compare…it had a cheaper sound and seemed like they were just riding the boy band trend rather than leading it.

  2. I’m wondering about a similar comparison between Take That and Robbie Williams, at the moment. Who would have higher CSPC in your opinion?

  3. Hah. I knew right from the very beginning that Nsync was extremely local. I was right. Their sales was nowhere near Britney nor BSB. Justin did the right move by dating Britney. It gave him the opportunity to introduce himself to the world, and is very useful for the build up of his solo career.
