BACKSTREET BOYS’ ‘DNA’ IS THEIR FIRST NO. 1 ALBUM IN NEARLY 20 YEARS

6

Nearly 20 years after their last Number One album, Backstreet Boys are back atop the Billboard 200 with the boy band’s new album DNA.

The No. 1 record marks the iconic boy band’s third No. 1 album and first since Black & Blue “spent two weeks at No. 1 in December of 2000,” according to Billboard.

Released Jan. 25 via RCA Records, DNA sold 227,000 albums (not including equivalent album units/streams), making it the top-selling album the week of its release.

DNA is also the Backstreet Boys’ tenth Top 10 album. Their self-titled debut album was their first release to hit the Top 10 when the record peaked at No. 4 on Jan. 31, 1998. The album also marks the group’s “largest sales week since 2005,” Billboard reports.
