What's New! (lost tracks of promotional album for "Now That's What I Call Music! 10" compilation album; 2002)
The "What's New" CD was a limited-edition promotional item for the compilation album, "Now That's What I Call Music! 10." The average person will not know about this is you ask them, but most fans of the "Now!" series are bound to be familiar with this. Unfortunately, while many people have come across older copies of "Now!" in their homes, it is highly unlikely that anyone still has this album lurking around in their basement or something, especially because there are very few fans of the series that have followed it early enough to receive it, and remained interested enough in the series to continue being fans to this day.
The "What's New" CD was advertised in the commercial for the "Now! 10" album, available through YouTube along with (some of) the artists featured on it, including Christina Milian, OK Go, Shannon McNally, Jose Falcon, Amerie, Stroke 9, no secrets, Jhene, Something Corporate and Phantom Planet. The tracklist itself can not be found as of July 16, 2020, but this information is crucial to recovering the media, as half of the information, (the artists) are given to us.
In general, the "Now!" series is becoming highly obscure subject matter. After a full-on decade of triumphant success on the Billboard 200, stunning achievements such as being the only compilation to reach 19 number-ones, and the development of this historic emblem of music in pop culture as far back as the late 90's, the series' latest album debuted at #141 on the Billboard 200, and only lasted a week before heading out of the chart, whereas the average album in the series debuted in the top 20, and lasted a good 25 to 30 weeks, some even around 40. The last remote traction this previously-dubbed cultural phenomenon recieved in the past few years, (aside from being written about on music news websites when the newest releases come out) was when the 69th edition of the series came out. Twitter had a field day with this. Chrissy Teigen and Spotify's account both contributed to this newly bred mini-meme, which soon would dumb down with time, especially as newer releases made the joke increasingly irrelevant.
