5 Seconds Of Summer “Looks So Perfect” On The Music Charts!

April 12, 2014


After releasing their “She Looks So Perfect” EP a few weeks ago, the boys of 5 Seconds of Summer has been taking the radio waves by storm! Personally, I know when I first heard the new single on the radio for the first time, I had to pull over because the excitement was INSANE! “Simmer down, simmer down.” No, Luke, I will NOT simmer down!

Australian natives Michael Clifford, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings, and Calum Hood have risen to fame since opening for One Direction’s Take Me Home Tour last year, and the fan girls are coming in herds! HERDS I TELL YOU! Since wrapping up the Take Me Home Tour, 5SOS has headlined their own tour of the UK, hit 5 different countries in 5 days, and currently are touring America on their Stars, Stripes, & Maple Syrup tour.

When the 5SOS boys were in England, they dropped into Capital FM, the UK to listen to the top ten countdown (albeit impatiently listen seeing as She Looks So Perfect was placed SOMEWHERE among the ten songs). After listening to eight hit singles, including Pharell’s “Happy,” Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” and John Legend’s “All of Me,” it was down to 5SOS’ “She Looks So Perfect” and Duke Dumont’s “I Got You.” As it turns out, She Looks So Perfect ranked NUMBER 1 on Vodafone’s Big Top 40 after only being released at midnight the night before! Check out the announcement (and group hug aww) below! Top UK’s music chart? Check.

Now, fast forward two weeks and the Aussies return to the US once again. Stars, Stripes, & Maple Syrup is about to be under way. Mere hours before the boys take to the stage, it is announced that She Looks So Perfect has placed Number 2 on the Billboard 200!! Now please keep in mind, 5 Seconds of Summer is virtually a group of nobodies (well, not anymore but you know what I mean). Placing Number 2 with a debut single in the US is absolutely mental!

As previously mentioned, the US leg of 5SOS’ tour dubbed “Stars, Stripes, & Maple Syrup” is currently under way with stops in LA and Dallas in the coming days! So if you haven’t already, go out and see them! You won’t regret it, I promise you!

MASSIVE congratulations to 5 Seconds of Summer on the success of She Looks So Perfect, and we cannot wait for you lot’s album to FINALLY be here!
