↳ Celebrity Day
On July 24th, 2001, *NSYNC released their third and final album, Celebrity. Though it sold significantly less than their previous effort, No Strings Attached, it still managed to move 1.8 million units in its first week of sales and ranks right below No Strings Attached for the record of Fastest Selling Album in the US. The album spawned 3 hit singles (“Pop”, “Gone”, and “Girlfriend”) as well as 2 tours (the PopOdyssey and Celebrity Tours) and is notable for having 10 out of its 13 tracks written by group members Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez, with the addition of a solitary track penned by founding member Chris Kirkpatrick on foreign editions of the album.
