Avicii’s latest album, Stories, has reached the top spot on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. According to Nielsen Music, the album has already sold 11,000 copies, which is approximately one-fifth of his last album’s opening-week sales.

His last album, True, was driven by his widely known hit, “Wake Me Up!,” which had the most weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs since the chart’s launch back in January 2013. Despite the fact that Stories is a crossover of multiple genres, the album has so far found only dance success.

The album features uncredited vocals from country artist Zac Brown and each track is quickly finding its own success. “Waiting For Love” was the album’s first song to make it to the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs top 10, followed by “Broken Arrows,” Avicii’s seventh overall, which ties him with Zedd for the second-most in the chart’s history.

Avicii also reaches the chart’s Hot Shot Debut with “Talk to Myself,” as well as new entries with “Gonna Love Ya,” “Trouble,” “Sunset Jesus” and “True Believer.” The Swede now has 23 chart hits in total, tying him with Skrillex for the most in the lifetime of the chart.
