The sixth U.S. installment of the "NOW That's What I Call Music!" compilation series will feature a host of current pop, R&B, and modern rock hit singles. Due out April 3, the set will feature songs by the Backstreet Boys, U2, Britney Spears, Lenny Kravitz, Destiny's Child, Shaggy, Jennifer Lopez, Coldplay, R. Kelly, and Creed, among others.

Distributed by Epic, "NOW That's What I Call Music! 6" is a cooperative effort of the Sony, Universal, EMI, and Zomba label groups.

A trio of tracks on the set were Billboard Hot 100 chart toppers -- Destiny's Child's "Independent Woman Pt. 1," Creed's "With Arms Wide Open," and "It Wasn't Me" by Shaggy featuring Ricardo "RikRok" Ducent. Along with Creed's cut, two other tracks -- Fuel's "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" and Incubus' "Drive" topped Billboard's Modern Rock survey.

Hugely popular internationally for nearly two decades, the "NOW" series was inaugurated in 1998 in the U.S. The second and third volumes have been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association Of America for U.S. sales of 2 million copies. The fourth edition, released last July, became the first compilation of previously released hits to ever top The Billboard 200. Its follow-up, "NOW 5" has been certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA.
