The 25 Biggest First-Week Album Sales in Music History

Usher, Confessions: 1,096,000

Release Date: 3/23/2004

For Usher's fourth album, the R&B star set his ambitions higher, broadening his scope and incorporating additional producers. With the debut of high-profile Lil Jon collaboration "Yeah!" three months earlier, the album was set to be a crossover smash. Although dogged by problems with its marketing and release schedule (it was originally supposed to be released in November 2003), the LP finally dropped in March, sold 1.096 million records, and became Usher's first No. 1 album.
