You can now add the US to the list of countries where Daft Punk‘s fourth studio album Random Access Memories has debuted at #1. It was officially announced on Tuesday (May 28) night that the French duo’s latest set sold a whopping 339,000 copies last week, enough to put it in the peak position on the Billboard 200. RAM also posted the second-biggest opening sales week for an album in 2013, behind only Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience, which moved 968,000 paid copies in late-March.

Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo‘s Random Access Memories is an album that was five years in the making. The pair collaborated with such artists and producers on the LP as Pharrell Williams, Panda Bear, Giorgio Moroder and Nile Rodgers, while lead single “Get Lucky” has gone on to become the duo’s biggest hit, worldwide, to date. In US alone, “Get Lucky” has become not only Daft Punk’s first Top 40 single, but also their first Top 10.

Currently Random Access Memories is the #1 album on iTunes, while “Get Lucky” is the #2 single. Not bad for a veteran dance act whose first album was released over 16 years ago.
