The xx Debut at Number Two on Charts

The xx

The xx have debuted at number two on this week’s Billboard charts while The Weeknd stays at number one (completely due to streaming):

The xx scores its highest charting album ever on the Billboard 200 chart, as the alternative band’s third studio album, I See You, debuts at No. 2. The set earned 46,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 19, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 36,000 were in traditional album sales.

I’ve been hearing this album everywhere over the past week.
