Lukas Graham‘s widely acclaimed self-titled debut – released last week via Warner Bros. Records – has secured the #3 spot on the Billboard Top 200.

Breakout lead single “7 Years” continues its rapid climb up the charts. With almost 300 millionstreams on Spotify globally, the song remains at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and is growing at multiple radio formats – currently #3 at Hot AC, #10 at Top 40, #13 at Mainstream Radio, and #17 at Triple A – with over 640 million in audience to date.
Lukas Graham has earned overwhelming acclaim, including positive reviews at Rolling Stone,The New York Times, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, People and more, with Esquire even declaring them “perhaps already a Best New Artist Grammy frontrunner.” The band has performed on Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, CONAN and Late Night with Seth Meyers, with more to come.
Led by singer Lukas Forchhammer, the Danish foursome is rounded out by Kasper Daugaard (keyboard), Mark “Lovestick” Falgren (drums) and Magnus Larsson (bass). The band is currently in the midst of their completely sold out North American headline tour. See below for more information.
