One week after Suicide Squad scored a big No. 1 debut at the box office, its accompanying soundtrack has done the same. 

According to Billboard, the Suicide Squad soundtrack debuts at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard 200 chart, with 182,000 equivalent album units and 128,000 in album sales. The latter number represents the best film soundtrack sales debut since Fifty Shades of Grey topped the tally in February 2015.

Contributing to the soundtrack’s robust debut? The inclusion of Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens,” a single from the soundtrack that has become a Top 20 hit. Skrillex and Rick Ross’ “Purple Lamborghini” also appears on the album, as does the Lil Wayne-led posse cut “Sucker For Pain.”

Suicide Squad once again reigns supreme at this week’s box office, albeit with a mighty week-to-week tumble. Click here to read about its box office record-smashing first week, and listen to the Back of the Class guys discuss Suicide Squad below:
