Fun. notches its second No. 1 in as many appearances on Billboard's Nielsen BDS-based Alternative chart, as "Some Nights," the title cut from the trio's breakout album, rises 3-1. The set has sold 446,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
The threesome first reigned for two weeks in April with its first Alternative entry, "We Are Young," featuring Janelle MonÃ¡e. (The track also topped the Billboard Hot 100 for six frames.) Fun. is the first act to lead the list on its first two tries since Alanis Morissette in 1995. No group had accomplished the feat since Green Day in 1994.
"We are so happy for Nate [Ruess], Jack [Antonoff] and Andrew [Dost] for this accomplishment," Roadrunner senior VP of promotion Mike Easterlin says. "This is a great story of three guys working hard to break through for 10 years, playing in different bands and eventually coming together to create fun. 'We Are Young' and 'Some Nights' are hopefully just the beginning for this amazing album they created."
