It would be their first...
Billboard reports that Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer is set to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200. Their self-titled debut album will sell around 250,000 copies by the end of the week on Sunday. It was released yesterday and follows their EP She Looks So Perfect, which peaked at #2.
If it gets 250,000, it would be the third-largest debut of the year and the fourth-largest sales week. Coldplay's Ghost Stories had the largest debut (383,000), followed by Eric Church's The Outsiders (288,000). The Frozen soundtrack had the third-largest sales week with 259,000 on the week of April 20.
The next highest debut will be Common's Nobody's Smiling with around 20,000.
