PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., July 2 (UPI) -- The most popular CD title across all age groups, is "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" by 50 Cent, The NPD Group reported Wednesday.
In the No. 2 spot is "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones and "The Eminem Show" by Eminem.
"Knowing the top music sellers only gives you a slice of the overall retail story," said Russ Crupnick, VP of The Port Washington, N.Y.-based NPD Group. "The age and gender of consumers can tell you a lot about their relationship to music."
Among consumers ages 13 to 17, "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" has topped 2003's list of most popular titles. Consumers aged 18 to 25 also bought "Get Rich or Die" most often. "Come Away With Me" was preferred by consumers aged 36 and older; and, unlike their younger counterparts, the over-fifty crowd also tended to purchase soundtrack from the movie, "Chicago."
