The Foo Fighters have made their second number one album on the Billboard charts with Concrete And Gold. Congratulations, guys!
Concrete And Gold has been named the number one album on the Billboard 200 chart with 127,000 equivalent album units sold last week. 120,000 units are from traditional album sales, and the rest are made up of “track equivalent albums” and “streaming equivalent albums” according to Stereogum. This is the Foo Fighters' first album to hit number one since their 2011 Wasting Light, though they've had a total of eight albums in the top ten.
The Foo Fighters have had quite an illustrious carreer and they don't show any signs of slowing. Concrete And Gold, released on September 15, is a star-studded affair with guest spots from Boyz II Men, Paul McCartney and Justin Timberlake, and they even opened their own pub for a short time to celebrate the album release.
