Paramore Respond to ‘Bananas’ Chart Success of New Album ‘This Is Why’
Paramore this week marveled at the chart success of their new album, This Is Why, and thanked fans for helping the LP debut in the No. 1 position across multiple Billboard charts.
This Is Why arrived Feb. 10, and in its first charting week, it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums and Top Album Sales charts, among others. It hit No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200, between albums by SZA and Taylor Swift.
"This is bananas," Paramore said on Tuesday (Feb. 21) alongside an image of the chart positions.
"We know enough by now to know success doesn’t equal value," the band continued.
"That being said," the Hayley Williams-led rockers added, "to experience the #1's (and a #2 between [SZA] & [Taylor Swift]) on this album, as this version of Paramore, is such a sweet and surreal moment to celebrate together. Thank you."
