The band could be the first a Capella act to debut at #1 with an album.

The meteoric rise of Pentatonix couldn't be overstated. They were one of three acts to sell over a million copies of an album in 2014. They have a Grammy. They have millions of YouTube views and several viral videos. Still, there has been one thing that has alluded them and anyone else like them:

An album of original songs that debuts at #1 on the Billboard album chart.

That may all change as the vocal group, which is comprised of members Avi Kaplan, Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola and Mitch Grassi – may just have that #1 album. Their self-titled debut album (debut of all original music) is neck and neck with Demi Lovato for that position, according to Fuse.

"I think it would really put us on the map as an actual pop music act," Grassi tells PEOPLE about what landing the top spot would mean to them. "It would be such an accomplishment for us, especially being a young a cappella group."

 Their album has already garnered them something they haven't had before: radio airplay. The first single off the album, Can't Sleep Love, has been in the Top 25 on adult contemporary radio. Check out the song below to see what everyone is talking about:

Streams of the album on Spotify and Amazon Music will also count toward album sales, something that could work in their favor. "We got very excited and then started going into overdrive … brainstorming how we could get the word out about our album," says Grassi, who's been excitedly Tweeting fans this week.

Go listen to the album now or even buy it on iTunes to be a part of history.
