5 Seconds Of Summer debut atop US and UK album charts
5 Seconds Of Summer have debuted their second album, “Sounds Good Feels Good”, at No. 1 on both the US and UK album charts.
Billboard reports the group’s second straight chart-topper sold 192,000 equivalent album units in its opening week, including 179,000 pure album sales.
The project was led by the summertime single, “She’s Kinda Hot”, which peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The latest single from “Sounds Good Feels Good” is “Hey Everybody”, which the group performed recently on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
In the UK, the Official Charts Company confirms the band’s album took top spot after outselling the No. 2 debut by Bryan Adams by more than two-to-one.
5 Seconds Of Summer are launching the project with an in-store signing at HMV Argyle Street in Glasgow on November 5 and an appearance at the Radio 1 Teen Awards at Wembley Arena in London on November 8.
