LOS ANGELES - Las Vegas rockers The Killers landed their first chart-topping album on the US Billboard 200 chart on Tuesday, staving off new records from rapper Macklemore and R&B singer Jhene Aiko.

"Wonderful Wonderful," the fifth studio album by The Killers, sold 118,000 album units in its first week, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.

The Billboard 200 chart tallies units from album sales, song sales (10 songs equal one album) and streaming activity (1,500 streams equal one album).

On the Digital Songs chart, which measures online single sales, alt-rockers Imagine Dragons' "Thunder" climbed to No. 1 from No. 4, with 65,000 copies sold. - Reuters
