HOME > Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica

Nick Lachey topping 'Newlyweds' ex-wife Jessica Simpson's CD sales

UPI News Service, 10/17/2006 

Since the much-publicized divorce of U.S. singers Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, Lachey's newest album has sold twice as many copies as Simpson's.

When comparing sales of Lachey's "What's Left of Me" album with his ex-wife's "A Public Affair" offering, the 32-year-old Lachey appears to have to have publicly recovered quickly due to his take on the singers' failed marriage, the New York Daily News reported.

While the 26-year-old Simpson chose to offer listeners a zippy pop album in the wake of her divorce, which was finalized in June, Lachey took the sympathetic and ultimately more successful route by emoting his sadness on "What's Left of Me."

To date, Simpson's fourth album has sold a total of 218,972 copies and currently sits at No. 131 on Billboard's Top 200 Album list, while her ex-husband's new album has seen 545,345 sales due to the success of its title ballad.

The Daily News said that those numbers reflect a drastic drop for Simpson, whose last album sold 2.9 million copies, while in contrast reflects triple the amount of sales Lachey enjoyed with his last musical offering.
