It was also a global No. 1 album, topping charts in Canada, Australia and the U.K.
Produced by Scott Moffatt, the disc features 17 songs including the five tracks previously released via "The Prequel" EP last summer.
Watt is a defensive end for the Houston Texans and will be making his debut as well.
