The record has spawned three No. 1 Modern Rock hits, including the title track, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "Holiday." The trio has sold over 20 million albums to date.

Artist, songwriter and producer R. Kelly has earned an incredible 30 top-10 hit singles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in his career. They include "Bump N' Grind," "Down Low (Nobody Has To Know)," "Fiesta" and his 2005 high-drama hit "Trapped in the Closet." He has achieved nine No. 1 Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and sold over 21 million albums in the U.S. Kelly has written or produced Hot 100 hits for a bevy of stars, including Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Aaliyah and Michael Jackson. Kelly is the recipient of 15 Billboard Music Awards.

Toby Keith's latest CD, "Honkytonk University," debuted at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart upon its release in May. His current single "Big Blue Note" was the highest debut for a new label in history. The set also contains the Hot Country Songs No. 1 hit "As Good As I Once Was," which became Keith's 15th No. 1 country single. To date, Keith has achieved 11 top-10 country albums � four of which reached No. 1. Keith has sold over 25 million albums in the U.S. to date.
