We’d like to send a hearty, virtual l’chaim to Haim on their recent success.

Their highly-anticipated album “Days Are Gone” has debuted at number one on the U.K. charts this week, pushing out Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience — 2 Of 2.” Billboard calls the battle one of the “closest finishes in chart history.”

The band, comprised of Este, Alana, and Danielle Haim — a trio of Jewish sisters from Los Angeles, first trailed Timberlake by 700 sales. Things picked up for the ladies Thursday night, when they led by a tight 28. The race closed out Saturday night, with Haim ahead by 2,100 sales.

Watch the video for their single “The Wire” here. Bonus: The Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone is in it. And he cries a lot.
