For Daft Punk, seven years of hype has resulted in their highest-charting U.S. single to date. According to Billboard, “Get Lucky” debuted this week at No. 20 on the Hot 100 chart with 113,000 downloads sold. And that’s despite not having a full week of sales (remember, the song was released Friday). For context: the group previously peaked at No. 61 with both 1997’s “Around the World” and 2001’s “One More Time”.

“Get Lucky” was even more successful on the iTunes chart, where it hit No. 1 in both the UK and France and No. 3 in the U.S. To top it off, according to Spotify, the song produced “the biggest streaming day for a single track in the U.S. and UK.”

How will the album fare? We’ll find out when Random Access Memories hits stores on May 21st. You can help them get an early start, however, by pre-ordering now.
