Willennium is Will Smith's second solo studio album. It was released on the heels of Smith's unprecedented success, Big Willie Style.
"Willennium" made it to No. 5 with 187,000 sales in its debut week, but was blocked by other big new releases as Korn's Issues (which debuted at No. 1 with 573,000), Dr. Dre's Dr. Dre 2001 (No. 2 with 516,000 ) and Celine Dion's All the Way... A Decade of Song (No. 3 with 302,000). It was the only time Smith managed to reach the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 list as a solo artist, as Big Willie Style peaked at No. 9. During the following "millennium-themed" weeks, the album stayed in the Top 10, but on its sixth week it fell very quickly from the charts as the Y2K interest had gone and Columbia could not produce new hits (the third single, "Freakin' It" reached only No. 99 in the U.S. and No. 15 in the UK, making it the second Smith single to fail the UK Top 3 as a solo artist after Just Cruisin' failed to make the top 20 in 1997).
