Supported by the commercial success of its lead single "Bye Bye Bye", their second studio album No Strings Attached (2000) debuted with 2.4 million copies sold in the first week.[1] The second single, "It's Gonna Be Me", reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. Their first two studio albums were certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America.
