As expected, Daft Punk is banking in their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with Random Access Memories. The record, which was released on Tuesday, May 21, is likely to sell up tp 300,000 units in its first week of sale. This would earn the French duo the second-largest debut week this year according to Nielsen SoundScan, following Justin Timberlake’s monster start of 968,000 for his The 20/20 Experience. This would also mean that Random Access Memories will have sold more than Daft Punk’s last studio release, Human After All, which has just sold 125,000 copies in the U.S. to date.

In addition, the LP has topped the iTunes charts, where the album could be pre-ordered, in 21 Western countries — the U.S., the UK, France, Germany, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
