5 SECONDS OF SUMMER Scores Third Number One Album In The U.S. With "Youngblood"!
Karen Jane Ng
5 Seconds of Summer just scored America's number 1 album for the third time around with their latest record Youngblood!
The quartet, who began their chart-topping streak with their self-titled album in 2014 and Sounds Good Feels Good in 2015, is the first and only Australian act to have three leading albums in the US Billboard 200 chart. It sure was a tight fight against The Carters' Everything Is Love but luckily, these boys are good at making history.
Ashton, Calum, Luke and Michael, who are now on an "incredible high", thanked their fans on social media. Congratulations, guys! Remember, 5SOSfam for life!
Hello, I am writing you a sentimental message on a plane to NY because I feel the need to connect with you 🌙 I am leaving this note here to express my love for music and my love for you! One thing I am certain about is my passion and ongoing belief that music, art and active expression in whatever form it may be is my true calling! The way you’ve backed 5SOS over the past 7 years and on the recent album has been truly incredible and is a definitive reminder that the ups and downs of a bands career are totally unpredictable. We are on an incredible high right now. And I am acknowledging it with all my being. Thank you forever! #youngblood
