US Chart Roundup: Daft Punk 's Big Week

Daft Punk's Random Access Memories sealed the French duo's comeback this week, not to mention their official US breakthrough, by debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200. The album sold 339,000 copies in its first week, enough to nab the second-biggest opening of the year so far, after Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience (968,000).

Another plus for the pair: single "Get Lucky" jumps from #10 to #4 on the Hot 100. Who knows — maybe America will right the wrongs of having "Around The World" and "One More Time" each stall at #61 and send "Get Lucky" to the top?

And to think, it only took 16 years...

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Can't Hold Us" - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Ray *4 weeks*
2. "Just Give Me A Reason" - Pink feat. Nate Ruess
3. "Mirrors" - Justin Timberlake 
4. "Get Lucky" - Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams
5. "Cruise" - Florida Georgia Line feat. Nelly
6. "Come & Get It" - Selena Gomez
7. "I Love It" - Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX
8. "Stay" - Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko
