Australian pop punk band 5 Seconds of Summer beat out “American Idol” alum Carrie Underwood to earn their second straight No. 1 album on the Billboard Top 200.

Following in the footsteps of the band’s 2014 debut self-titled full-ength album, their latest release, Sounds Good Feels Good, fueled by their pop smash “She’s Kinda Hot,” bowed at an impressive 192,000 impressions (179,000 pure sales). For Underwood, her new album, Storyteller, is her first since her 2005 debut to not enter the charts at No. 1. Though the set’s lead single, “Smoke Break,” broke a record for first week adds at radio, the album was only able to muster 177,000 impressions (164,000 pure sales).

Elsewhere in the top 10, The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind The Madness holds steady at the No. 3 spot while Fetty Wap’s self-titled debut moves up a notch from five to four. Drake and Future also stick around with their collaborative effort, What a Time to Be Alive, holding on at No. 6, while last week’s chart-topper, the self-titled album by a capella group Pentatonix, falls all the way to No. 8.
