LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Electro-rock band LCD Soundsystem scored its first chart-topping record on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart on Monday, the only new album in the top ten after a quiet week of releases.

American Dream, the fourth album by LCD Soundsystem, sold 81,000 albums, some 5,000 songs and was streamed nearly 6 million streams, totaling 85,000 album units, 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).

American Dream knocked off last weeks chart-topper, rapper Lil Uzi Verts Luv is Rage 2, which dropped to No. 2 this week with 73,000 album units sold.
