5 Seconds of Summer are in some rare company. All three of their albums opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, something no other band (not vocal group) has achieved. They’re also the only Australian group to land three leaders on the albums chart.
Their hit “Youngblood” was the best-selling single Down Under for 2018, making the Sydneysiders the first homegrown act in 13 years to top ARIA’s year-end tally.
And now, they’ve joined APRA AMCOS’ The 1,000,000,000 List.
The four-piece clocked up one billion hits for “Youngblood,” which spent eight consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart and impacted the top 10 in eleven territories, including the U.S., the U.K. and Canada.
