(USA Today) -- Six albums and more than 10 years later, pop star Robin Thicke has finally scored his first No. 1 album on the Billboard album chart.
Blurred Lines (yes, named for that song of summer) sold 177,000 copies in its first week, according to Billboard. It surpasses Thicke's previous best for Something Else, which sold 137,000 copies when it debuted in 2008.
Rock group Five Finger Death Punch came in at No. 2 with The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell: Volume 1, selling 112,000 copies and becoming the highest-charting album for the act.
Three other albums had top 10 debuts this week, including Tech N9ne at No. 4 with Something Else (58,000), veteran boy band Backstreet Boys at No. 5 with In a World Like This (48,000) and pop trio Emblem3 at No. 7 with Nothing to Lose (46,000).
