The album debuted at #1 in the US and broke a record for the most first-week sales by a female artist. It has sold over 19 million copies worldwide.
Lauryn was nominated for 10 Grammy Awards in one night, which was the record for the most nominations for a female artist. She won five Grammy Awards that night, including Album of The Year, making it the first hip-hop album in history to be awarded that honour.
