5 Seconds of Summer land first US Top 10 single

Sydney band 5 Seconds of Summer have scored their first US Top 10, with Youngblood, chart research company Nielsen Music announced.

In the latest chart, the track moved from #11 to #10.

So far, 5SOS’ highest single achievement in the US has been with Amnesia which peaked at #16.

All their three albums topped the charts, with the current Youngblood achieving the feat in June.

The band became the first Australian act with three #1 albums on the Billboard 200.

5SOS’ overseas success reflects their domination at home, which saw them top the Hot 100 back in July with Youngblood and help EMI Music Australia grasp a 7% share of the chart.

“5SOS’ Youngblood reaching the #1 position on the Hot 100 was a welcome and hard-fought-for surprise,” head of marketing & media EMI Music Australia Alicia Reynolds told TMN.

“It is a credit to the band, their artistic vision and drive to innovate, and Australian radio and streaming services led the world in supporting them.
