    The certifications that Nelson posted are right, but the value of them are wrong. Platinum = 250k (before 2000) Platinum = 150k (2000-2004), Platinum = 100k (since).

    Worldwide: 75 million

    Their 1996 self-titled debut album, not released in US, sold 7.5-million copies worldwide; the non-US follow-up "Backstreet's Back" and the US-only "Backstreet Boys" sold together 22-million; "Millenium" stands currently at 14.5-million worldwide; total worldwide sales 44 million.

    Source: Billboard - October 30th, 1999

    'Backstreet Boys' was 11x Platinum in the US, so this means 'Backstreet Boys' had sold 18.5 million worldwide, 'Backstreet's Back' had sold 11 million worldwide and 'Millenium' had sold 14.5 million worldwide (8x Platinum in the US).

    BSB are a big example of how overinflated US certifications were in the peak of teen pop. Black And Blue didn't sell anywhere near 8 million and it's chart trajectory wasn't that amazing either but yet it was certified 8x platinum as soon as it came out, even tho it ended up scanning around 5 million (and even then I think that is a bit high because the album didn't seem half as successful or long-lasting as 5-million sellers such as Breakaway, American Idiot or Emancipation Of Mimi)

    Soundscan: 10.1 million
    BMG: 1.7 million
    Total: 11.8 million

    RIAA shipment: 14 million

    Millenium
    Soundscan: 12.1 million
    BMG: 1.6 million
    Total: 13.7 million

    13.7/11.8 x 14 = 16 million.

    or

    BMG sales x 2 (3.2M) + Soundscan sales (12.1M) and 500k for in-store shipment = 15.8 million

    15 million is a very conservative estimate. I wouldn't be surprised if it were at 16 million, looking at 'Black & Blue'.

    The certifications that Nelson posted are right, but the value of them are wrong. Platinum = 250k (before 2000) Platinum = 150k (2000-2004), Platinum = 100k (since).
    According BPI Yearbook 1995 - 1998.
    They said:
    Mexico
    Domestic
    Gold (100,000), Platinum (250,000)
    International
    Gold (50,000), Platinum (100,000)

    I trust this because AMPROFON would reply to BPI's request, at least BPI has done some research, but AMPROFON won't reply to chart fans.

    And also there's evidence to back up, like in 1994 Billboard said "Bodyguard" was the best-selling international album which sold 500,000, and "Thriller" sold 400,000. So I can't believe Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears easily outsold those classic albums.

    The Backstreet Boys have released 16 singles, selling nearly 3 m singles in a chart career that stretches back to 1995.

    I'm dead sure that the Billboard is wrong about this - Or at least that it is not comprehensive/precise with this claim.

    Well, 3 foreign albums sold easily over 500K in Argentina, but none have done it in Mexico ? Thanks to releases in recent years we can all see that foreign releases sold much more in Mexico than in Argentina. Also, "Off The Wall" sold 500K in Mexico, how Thriller or Bodyguard can has sold only 600K ?

    BTW, albums that have for sure sold over 500K are numerous, Off The Wall, Thriller, Saturday Night Fever, The Immaculate Collection etc... Bodyguard was obviously not the first one.

    Erhjm the boys sold 1 million copies its first week of release and back then album sales were alot better and
    you didnt have to stay in the charts for a long timeto sell extremely well a succers is a succes no mattter how long it stays on the charts.

    Why do people keep saying that.

    There's no way in the world 'Millenium' sold 30 million copies.

    US - 15,000,000
    Canada - 1,100,000
    Brazil - 500,000
    Mexico - 750,000 (or 300,000)
    Europe - 2,000,000
    Asia - 2,000,000
    Australasia - 250,000
    Total: 21,600,000 (or 21,150,000)

    Where did the other 8.4 million come from? I think 24 million worldwide, at most.
