"The X Factor" U.S. alum Fifth Harmony debuted on the Billboard 200 chart this week with the "Better Together" EP. It comes in at no. 6 on the chart which is the highest peak so far from an act on the FOX series, Billboard reported on Wednesday.
Fifth Harmony made "The X Factor" U.S. history earlier this year when "Miss Movin' On" became the first single from any contestant on the show to chart on the Hot 100. It also holds the distinction of being the highest charting track on the Hot 100 from any of the show alumni so far when it peaked at no. 76.
The girls of 5H - Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, Camila Cabello and Dinah Jane Hansen - make more history as alumni from the FOX series. According to Billboard, Fifth Harmony's debut EP "Better Together" comes it at no. 6 this week on the albums chart with 28,000 copies sold. It was the second highest debut on the Billboard 200 behind Katy Perry's no. 1 album "Prism." The EP also outpaces other "X Factor" U.S. act Emblem3's debut album "Nothing to Lose," which peaked at no. 7 on the albums chart earlier this year.
Fifth Harmony finished in third place on the second season of "The X Factor" U.S. last year but the band is shaping up to be the series' biggest success story. "Miss Movin' On" was released at the first single from Fifth Harmony's "Better Together" EP. The EP dropped on October 22.
