Danity Kane's newly released self-titled debut is the fastest selling album in the U.S., with 90,000 CD's sold on its first day in stores.
To the surprise of music industry watchers, the album is competing successfully with new offerings from proven popular artists such as Outkast and Christina Aguilera. Despite a lack of radio play, fans of the Bad Boy Records R&B group buzzed the singers' single online, making "Show Stopper" one of the most streamed songs on MySpace, with almost five and a half million plays. The full length album is currently the top seller on iTunes.
"Many people wrote off these girls as just a 'made-for-TV' group, but I believed in their talent from the beginning", wrote Sean "Diddy" Combs, in a statement released to the press. "The fans have spoken, and with their love and support, Danity Kane's dream is coming true. He added, "Sometimes word of mouth is better than radio and video play. This is the best kind of success, one that comes straight from the people."
