This achievement, which his band Matchbox Twenty never did, proves Thomas as the first male artist from a pop/rock band to debut at number one with his first solo album in the 50 years that Billboard has been keeping tabs on such things.

As Thomas gains the top, Mariah Carey's "The Emancipation of Mimi" slips to number two, selling another 226,000 discs. Featured on the Top 10 list also Mike Jones to land at three with "Who Is Mike Jones?" and Il Divo with "Il Divo". Next is 50 Cent's "The The Massacre"; Gwen Stefani's "Love, Angel, Music, Baby"; The Killers' "Hot Fuss"; and Green Day's "American Idiot." The last two on the list are "Now That's What I Call Music! 18" and "Choices II" by Three 6 Mafia.
