The results are in and 5 Seconds Of Summer have done it! The band have not only become the first Australian act to have earned three No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200, but also the first band ever to have their first three records go to No. 1 in the U.S.
Youngblood dropped just over a week ago on June 15. According to Billboard, the record rose to the top of the list with 142,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending June 21. Of that sum, 117,000 were in traditional album sales.
The band finished ahead of The Carters (the husband/wife team of JAY-Z and Beyoncé), Christina Aguilera and two records from the late XXXTentacion.
Billboard has stated that the new June 30-dated chart (where 5 Seconds of Summer debut at No. 1) will be posted in full on their website, Tuesday, June 26.
5 Seconds of Summer’s Youngblood follows both 2015’s Sounds Good Feels Good and 2014’s self-titled album at No. 1 on the list.
Congratulations to 5 Seconds of Summer!
Michael Clifford must be stoked after posting this tweet yesterday:
to think that 4 dudes from Western Sydney could even have a chance against two of the most successful artists of all time is insane. we would be the first band in history to have our first three albums go #1 in the US. we are so close. 5sos fam for life. pic.twitter.com/BeW73XFvGC
