Limp Bizkit "break" sales record?
A few years ago these kind of first week sales numbers were unheard of. Now with the large number of "generation y" buyers in the U.S. market it is becoming common for artists who dominate MTV and Top 40 radio to sell over a million in the first couple of weeks of release. However, N Sync and Eminem will likely hold on to their first week sales records for some time. 'N Sync's "No Strings Attached" sold 2.4 million copies in its first week and Eminem's latest "the Marshall Mathers LP" clocked in with sales of 1.7 million. Limp Bizkit is expected to capture the third place with estimated sales in the neighborhood of 1.3 million.
