The guys released their album No Strings Attached back in 2000 and it sold 2.416 million copies in its first week of sales, a record that they’ve held for fifteen years and no one has come close to beating.
In just over three days of sales, Adele has stormed past the record with her new album 25.
“Records are always meant to be broken, but with technology and current music business model, I thought this one would be tough to beat,” Joey Fatone told Billboard. “In all honesty, Adele is the truth — kinda excited a rare talent like hers is in the same breath as our group. I’m a huge fan….I even bought the damn album.”
