Daft Punk Still Receiving Digital Love Atop Album Chart, Little Mix Debut High With ‘DNA’
It’s a second week at #1 for Daft Punk on the Billboard 200 —”one more time,” if you will — as the French duo’s Random Access Memories has racked up another 93,000 copies in sales. And given that lead single “Get Lucky” has now jumped up to #3 on the Hot 100, it’s probably time for the robots to go get drunk on champagne — or starter fluid, or whatever the hell they drink.
Meanwhile, 2011 UK X Factor winners Little Mix snag a decent stateside debut at #4 on the album chart with DNA (50,000). Not bad for the quartet, considering the album only managed to reach #3 in their home country, and they achieved the feat without the aid of an E! reality series. In fact, having an E! show might be actually be a really, really bad thing for Brits attempting to crack America. (See: The Saturdays non-existent stateside career.)
