5 Seconds of Summer Top U.S. Album Chart With ‘Sounds Good Feels Good’

Australian pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer has notched its second consecutive No. 1 on the U.S. album chart with sophomore release “Sounds Good Feels Good,” having moved 192,000 copies in the week ending Oct. 29, according to data from Nielsen Music.

Led by singles “She’s Kinda Hot” and “Hey Everybody,” “Sounds Good Feels Good” is the follow-up to Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Michael Clifford and Ashton Irwin’s 2014 self-titled debut album, which also premiered at No. 1 when it sold 259,000 copies in its debut. 5 Seconds of Summer spoke to Variety in August about how this album finds them leading their fans in a “cool revolution.”

Behind 5SOS is Carrie Underwood’s new album, “Storyteller.” Underwood’s latest moved 177,000 units in its debut, good for second place in its first week on the chart. Her last album, the 2014 compilation “Greatest Hits: Decade #1,” debuted at No. 4.

Blake Shelton also cracked the top 10 with his new collection, “Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits.” Shelton’s best-of premiered at No. 5, having moved 40,000 units in its debut.

Renowned vocalist Andrea Bocelli notched the final top-10 debut in the time frame; his “Cinema,” which features Bocelli’s versions of big-screen hits like “Maria” from “West Side Story” and “Laura’s Theme” from “Doctor Zhivago,” premiered with 30,000 copies sold.

The Weeknd’s “Beauty Behind the Madness” led the older releases, down 12% at No. 3 with 55,000 units moved. Fetty Wap’s self-titled debut album followed, down 12% at N0. 4 with 42,000 units moved. Drake and Future’s joint “What a Time to Be Alive” dropped 20% at No. 6, moving 34,000 units.

Taylor Swift’s “1989,” which has remained in the top 10 for more than a year, finished the week at No. 7 with 34,000 units moved, down 7%. Swift wrapped up the U.S. leg of her “1989” tour on Saturday night with a little help from Idina Menzel, who joined Swift onstage to perform the “Frozen” megahit “Let It Go.”

Pentatonix’s self-titled album dropped to No. 8 after debuting at No. 1 the week before, plummeting 67% with 32,000 units moved. Selena Gomez, whose “Revival” debuted at No. 1 two charts ago, slipped 33% to No. 9, having moved 31,000 units.

Adele saw massive chart action in the wake of new single “Hello” and the announcement of new album “25.” The singer’s “21,” which debut at No. 1 in March 2011, leapt up to No. 11 from No. 79, moving 28,000 copies for the week and surging up 369%, which bodes extremely well for her upcoming new collection.
