LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Matchbox 20 singer Rob Thomas says to be a band that put out their first album in 1996 and now have their first number-one album feels like they're doing something right. Matchbox 20's "North" sold 95,000 copies its first week, putting it on top of Billboard's album chart. Even though it's their first number-one album, it's not their best-selling week. Matchbox 20's 2000 album, "Mad Season," sold 365,000 its first week but only reached number 3.
