It's official: fun.'s Some Nights is the top-rated new album in the country this week.
The band's second album, Some Nights, debuts at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. Their debut set, Aim and Ignite, debuted and peaked at No. 71 in 2009. (Some Nights sold almost as many copies this week as the band's previous album sold total--70,000 compared to 74,000, respectively.)
fun. is basking in the success of the single "We Are Young" (featuring Janelle Monae), which is featured in Chevy's 2012 Sonic TV commercial. The song sells 291,000 downloads this week, returning it to No. 1 (6-1) on the Digital Songs chart (up 19%).
Not unexpectedly, Adele's 21 album spends a 22nd week atop the Billboard 200 chart, selling 297,000 (down 59%) according to Nielsen SoundScan. This is also 21's ninth consecutive week at No. 1 -- the most in-a-row frames at No. 1 since the Titanic soundtrack racked 14-straight in 1998.
