What do Kanye West and Chris Stapleton have in common?
The flamboyant Mr. Kardashian and the bearded country crooner are the only two acts to top Lukas Graham in this week's Billboard 200 albums chart. 
 
The Danish band debuted at number three on the album charts with their self-titled US debut, also called ‘The Blue Album', moving 59,000 units. 
 
With the third place finish, Lukas Graham is now the highest-placing Danish act ever, Ekstra Bladet reported. No other Danish act has made it to the top five, although Aqua and Volbeat have managed to crack the top ten. 
 
On the singles chart, the four-piece's smash hit ‘7 Years' is still at number two behind Rihanna's ‘Work' but was the week's biggest gainer in digital sales and in airplay. 
 
The only other Danish musical act to match Lukas Graham's second place ranking on the singles chart is Jørgen Ingemann, whose 1961 hit ‘Apache' peaked one spot from the top. 
 
While Lukas Graham is currently riding the wave of success in the US, Danish fans will have the chance to see their homegrown hero in June when the band plays the NorthSide and Tinderbox festivals as well as stadium shows in Copenhagen and Aalborg.
