With almost 200,000 units sold, Blink-182's comeback album, California, has reached No. 1 on Billboard's 200 chart, along with a No. 1 in the U.K.
California dethroned Drake's nine week sprint at the top and is Blink-182's first No. 1 album in 15 years. 172,000 out of the total 186,000 units sold were traditional album sales, which is the third largest week for a rock album in 2016 and the band's biggest week since 2003's self-titled (via Billboard). The record is also Blink-182's first chart-topper in Britain, according to Forbes.
Blink-182's first No. 1 album was Take Off Your Pants And Jacket from 2001. That's the biggest gap between No. 1 albums for any act since 2012 and the longest for any rock act since 2008. However, the band has a total of seven top 10 spots, including 1999's Enema Of The State, which peaked at No. 9.
California's lead single, “Bored To Death,” easily hit No. 1 on the Alternative Songs chart, the band's first there since 2004.
Blink-182's seventh studio album, California dropped on July 1.
