Daft Punk Is No. 1 for Second Week
Daft Punk is sitting on top of the Billboard 200 album chart for a second week in a row and trust us, they didn’t just ‘Get Lucky’ with this one. The French duo has sold a whopping 93,000 copies of their album ‘Random Access Memories,’ bringing the sales of their LP to a total of 432,000.
This is quite the feat for Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, as none of their previous albums had ever been No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Their 2005 LP ‘Human After All,’ along with their live release ‘Alive 2007,’ have both claimed the top spot on Dance charts, but never the big bad Billboard 200.
This amazing success Daft Punk had with ‘Random Access Memories’ is solidifying their place among the music greats. (They are two of the richest EDM artists for a reason, after all.) The duo has always been talented and released progressive and groundbreaking music, but now they have the chart success to back up their stellar discography. Kudos, to Daft Punk! We hope to see them hold the top spot for many weeks to come!
