As the third #1 album of their career and first release since 2009, this #1 bow represents a landmark moment for the group and pop at large as they retain the place at the top of the charts, they claimed a decade ago.

Recently ranked #1 on Billboard’s critic's picks list of the “50 Best Songs of 2019,” it has become a song of the summer anthem. At radio, the multiplatinum Billboard Hot 100 #1 smash “Sucker” continues to dominate, rapidly ascending to #1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart where it led for eight weeks- the most for any song this year and longest running #1 since Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” in 2017. The song also recaptured the #1 spot on Billboard's Adult Pop Songs chart, as the band’s follow up single “Cool” approaches the Top 10 on Pop Songs.
