Now that the Jonas Brothers are back, they’re bigger than ever.
On June 7, the brothers dropped their comeback album Happiness Begins, 10 years after their last album, and now the album has gone straight to the top of the charts.
Billboard announced on Monday that Happiness Begins debuted in the number one spot on their Billboard 200 list, making it the Jonas Brothers’ their third No. 1 album.
Billboard reports that the album earned 414,000 sales (made up of 357,000 album sales, 52,000 in stream equivalent sales, and 5,000 in download and single sales), making the album the largest week of the year for any album in terms of units and album sales.
Happiness Begins also now marks the largest sales week for an album in more than a year (since Taylor Swift‘s reputation), and also had the biggest week for a pop album since 2017 and for an album by a group in more than three years.
“Honestly blown away by the official first week numbers of #HappinesBegins,” Nick Jonas wrote on Twitter after the news broke. “thank you to every single one of you for making this chapter of our journey so incredible. It’s all because of you. We love you.”

The Billboard 200 chart is a chart that ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on “multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).”
Congratulations to the Jonas Brothers on the success of their album!
