Lady Gaga's Born This Way Becomes The 17th Album To Sell A Million Copies Since The Introduction of SoundScan

Lady Gaga's Born This Way sold 1,108,000 copies this week (as one of us predicted at the end of 2010), making it the 17th album to sell over a million copies in its initial week since SoundScan was implemented in 1991.

Let's have a look at the seventeen albums that have sold over a million copies during their debut week in the past twenty years:
  • Backstreet Boys, Black & Blue
  • Backstreet Boys, Millennium
  • The Beatles, 1
  • Garth Brooks, Double Live
  • Eminem, The Eminem Show
  • Eminem, The Marshal Mathers LP
  • 50 Cent, The Massacre
  • Whitney Houston, The Bodyguard Soundtrack
  • Norah Jones, Feels Like Home
  • Lady Gaga, Born This Way
  • Lil Wayne, Tha Carter III
  • Limp Bizkit, Chocolate Starfish & The Hot Dog Flavored Water
  • 'N Sync, Celebrity
  • 'N Sync, No Strings Attached
  • Britney Spears, Oops!... I Did It Again
  • Taylor Swift, Speak Now
  • Usher, Confessions
For the most part, that's an awful list, right? Who owns this crap?

Confession: I own 4 albums on this list (Gaga, Britney, and both Eminem albums).

So for this week's Your Say Hump Day, tell us how many of these seventeen albums you own.

Be honest.

Be brave.
