Daft Punk's latest album Random Access Memories continued its reign at the top of the charts, remaining at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart for the second straight week.

Random Access Memories sold 93,000 copies in its second week, bringing its total sales to 432,000 copies. Though sales are down 73 percent from its first week, the album was mostly bolstered by pre-orders. Therefore,  Billboard assured that there wasn' that significant of a drop.

Comparatively, the drop was only a few percentage points above 2013's average second week drop rate of 68 percent.

Additionally, Get Lucky, Daft Punk's lead single off the album, leapt from No. 10 to No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Daft Punk, notoriously a reclusive duo, is reportedly very grateful for the success of Get Lucky. Pharrell Williams, co-collaborator on the single, said that he never expected to blow up like it did, adding, "I was with the robots yesterday, and, of course, they're super thankful too."

When asked what the duo had planned for the future, Williams replied, "They don't talk about future plans; they're all about the present, which has no ribbon. The masks are an extension of who they are as people ... they pretty much think that way regardless."

Watch the Williams interview here:

 

Despite the drop in sales, Random Access Memories managed to beat three significant debuts this week.

Veteran rock group Alice in Chains landed at No. 2 with 61,000 copies sold of The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, their highest debut since 1995.

Similarly, veteran rocker John Fogerty debuted at No. 3 with 51,000 sold for Wrote a Song for Everyone, his biggest-selling debut since 1985.

British girl group Little Mix, who won The X Factor (UK) in 2011, made their debut at No. 4, with 50,000 copies sold for their debut album, DNA.

Blake Shelton rounded out the top 5, selling 42,000 of Based on a True Story, which was released on March 26.
