5 Seconds of Summer Sales Sizzle: No. 1-Bound on Billboard 200 Chart

Pop/rock band 5 Seconds of Summer are set to charge in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week with their self-titled full-length debut album.

Industry sources suggest the set might sell 250,000 copies in the week ending July 27. (The number could end up just shy of 250,000 — but the quarter-million mark is definitely within their sights.)

5 Seconds of Summer could become the first Australian band to hit No. 1 since AC/DC’s Black Ice spent two weeks atop the list in 2008 (Nov. 8 and Nov. 15).
