Well the good news for the old men over at NKOTB is they had their biggest album since 1990. For those of you counting, that is almost 20 years. Not since Step By Step have people wanted to buy a NKOTB album so darn much. The bad news is that Young Jeezy is loved even more by the masses and the people too embarrassed to have a NKOTB CD in their car.
Now don;t go kicking yourself if you are a soccer mom who was going to buy the album and now blame yourself for NKOTB being denied. It really wouldn't have made much difference. Basically they got their ass kicked by Young Jeezy, but no one will remember that and will only remember the fact they finished second.
Young Jeezy sold 260,000 copies of his album while NKOTB sold 95,000.
Hey, there is always next week, or in another 20 years when they start to burn through this money. I guess buy then it will be Old Jeezy and Old Kids On the Block fighting it out.
