Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’ Tops Billboard Charts

After an eight year hiatus, Daft Punk is back and for the first time in their lengthy career, their album has debuted atop the Billboard 200 album chart.

Good things certainly come to those who wait, and both fans and the French duo are reaping the benefits of this philosophy. Fans got an instantly classic album with ‘Random Access Memories,’ while Daft Punk are boasting record sales — moving 339,000 copies in the release’s first week on sale. The only other album to sell more in its first week was Justin Timberlake’s ‘The 20/20 Experience,’ — the singer’s first album in seven years. Are you sensing a trend here?

‘Random Access Memories’ was released to high critical acclaim and is certainly turning both pop and EDM music on it’s head. Their lead-off single ‘Get Lucky’ is a disco anthem that seems to be setting up pop music to go in a vastly different direction than it’s been headed — and we’re totally cool with that!

The guys were recently named as the second richest EDM artists with a net worth of $60 million each. Hard work and musical genius certainly pays off!
