Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights has debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 200 album chart with more than 345,000 copies sold, according to Billboard.
The collection, Luke’s fifth studio album, is the third-largest week of 2015 for album sales (the only one’s larger are the debuts of Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late at 535,000 in overall units and Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly at 363,000 units).
Kill The Lights’ is also the largest sales week for a country album in three years — since Luke’s last full album, Crash My Party, which bowed at No. 1 with 528,000 in August of 2013. This is Luke’s third consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200.
Kill the Lights was produced by Jeff Stevens and Jody Stevens and contains 13 songs, six of which were co-written by Luke including the title track.
Luke’s latest single, “Strip It Down,” is climbing the country charts.
