Keith Caulfield of Billboard.com fielded a question from a Backstreet Boys fan wondering why *NSYNC is perceived as the bigger act in the boy band world. Caulfield says, “For each groups three studio sets, ‘N Sync has moved 24.5 million copies of its albums, while Backstreet Boys have sold 27.4 million. Your point has been proven.” He continues, “Why has the media and the general public perceived *NSYNC as the more successful of the two acts? Radio is a factor.” The last two *NSYNC albums have produced more top-20 hits (6 in total) on Billboard’s Hot 100 than the Backstreet Boys have (3 in total) by comparison.
