5SOS Debut at No. 1 on Billboard 200, Carrie Underwood Not Far Behind
5 Seconds of Summer are making it very clear they're good for more than 15 minutes of fame.
The Australian pop-punk band's second album, Sounds Good Feels Good, has officially debuted atop the Billboard 200, the site reported. The LP, which includes the singles "She's Kinda Hot" and "Hey Everybody," moved 179,000 in pure album sales (192,000 with additional media included), and the group is now officially the very first band whose first two albums kicked off at No. 1.
5SOS' first self-titled album debuted in the top spot last year after moving 259,000 units.
Not far behind 5SOS is Carrie Underwood, whose fifth studio album, Storyteller, debuts at No. 2 10 years after her first LP, Some Hearts, did the same. Storyteller, which has so far spawned the single "Smoke Break," sold 164,000 last week (177,000 with additional media considered), and makes Underwood the only country artist whose first five studio albums have all debuted in the top two spots—2007's Carnival Ride, 2009's Play On and 2012's Blown Away all debuted at No. 1.
And rounding out the top three is The Weeknd's Beauty Behind The Madness, which sold 55,000 last week after debuting at No. 1 in August.
