Emblem3's Debut Album Nothing To Lose Makes Top 10 Entry On The Billboard 200

Band Up For 'Breakout Group' At Next Weekend's Teen Choice Awards


NEW YORK, Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SYCO/Columbia Records – Emblem3's debut album Nothing To Lose has made an impressive top 10 entry on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, debuting at #7 and selling nearly 46,000 copies. The album, which was released July 30 and features hit single "Chloe (You're The One I Want)," marks the highest first week sales of any other act from The X Factor US and is the biggest debut album sales week from any US television competition series artist in 2013. Nothing To Lose was the first release on Executive Producer Savan Kotecha's label imprint "Mr Kanani," through Syco Music / Columbia Records.

Emblem3 has received much praise in recent weeks, with Entertainment Tonight applauding the album's "beach-ready tunes that create the perfect summer soundtrack." The Los Angeles Times described their sound as "a fusion of pop, ska and hip-hop – think Sublime, only with washboard abs and none of the grit" while The Huffington Post named Emblem3 "The Next Boy Band to Watch."

This weekend, Emblem3 will present at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards, where they've also received a nomination in the Choice Music Breakout Group category alongside Icona Pop, Imagine Dragons, The Lumineers and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Teen Choice 2013 celebrates the hottest teen icons in television, music, film, sports, fashion, comedy and the web, and the star-studded, two-hour event will air live Sunday, August 11 at 8:00PM ET / PT on FOX. Fans can vote for Emblem3 at www.teenchoiceawards.com.

Emblem3 kicked off their album release week with a performance of "Chloe (You're The One I Want)" on The View, which follows their network television debut of the song on Good Morning America's annual Summer Concert Series in June. The band also spent the week taking east coast malls by storm during a run of album signing events that drew thousands of screaming fans. "Chloe" has achieved Top 25 airplay at Pop Radio, while the band's new Twitter followers were up 92% (3X the Social 50 average) last week alone.

Emblem3, who got their start competing on the second season of The X Factor (on Fox), will wrap up a run of headline tour dates this month before joining Selena Gomez on the Stars Dance arena tour across the US and Canada, kicking off on August 14 in Vancouver and running through the end of November.
