Arcade Fire’s "Reflektor" Debuts at #1 on "Billboard" 200; Linkin Park in at #10

Facebook.com/ArcadeFireArcade Fire has scored their second #1 album on the Billboard 200.

The group’s fourth studio album, Reflektor, secured the #1 slot this week with over 140,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Arcade Fire’s 2010 release, The Suburbs, was their first album to debut at #1 on the tally after racking up 156,000 copies its first week out.

Linkin Park’s RECHARGED, an album featuring new interpretations of songs from 2012's Living Things, also made a big splash on the chart. That album claimed the #10 spot on the list, with nearly 33,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Thanks to the successful first-week sales, RECHARGED has now become the group’s eight album to debut in the top 10 on the Billboard 200.
