It’s official: Fall Out Boy has scored their second #1 album on the Billboard 200.
The band's new album, Save Rock and Roll , secured the #1 slot this week with over 154,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Fall Out Boy’s 2007 release, Infinity on High , was their first album to debut at #1 on the tally, after racking up 260,000 copies its first week out.
Meanwhile, Yeah Yeah Yeahs scored their highest-charting album ever with Mosquito , which came in at #5 on the chart with 38,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. While Mosquito ’s first-week sales performance is impressive, it doesn’t beat the initial success of the band's 2006 release, Show Your Bones . That album sold 56,000 copies in its first week, debuting and peaking at #11 on the list.
