(Comedy Central) Movits!, the Swedish hip-hop jazz band that first appeared on "The Colbert Report" on Monday, July 27, has just reached #2 on the iTunes hip-hop chart and #18 overall.

Comedy Central Records released the band's "Appelknyckarjazz" album digitally in the US on July 29 and it has seen one of the most explosive releases in history.

The album, sung entirely in Swedish, is influenced as much by legendary hip hop artists as it is by Cab Calloway. Their single, "Fel Del Av Gården," has seen its five-star rated YouTube video viewings jump from 100,000 to almost a quarter of a million in a matter of a few days.

Previously released recordings by Comedy Central Records include: Dane Cook's "ISolated INcident," Cook's platinum-selling "Harmful If Swallowed" and double-platinum "Retaliation," Mitch Hedberg's "Do You Believe in Gosh?," Grammy Award-winning, "Lewis Black: The Carnegie Hall Performance," Grammy Award-nominees' Steven Wright's "I Still Have A Pony" and George Lopez's "America's Mexican," Joe Rogan's "Shiny Happy Jihad," Christopher Titus's "5th Annual End Of The World Tour," Norm MacDonald's "Ridiculous," Demetri Martin's "These Are Jokes," "Jim Gaffigan: Beyond The Pale," Mike Birbiglia's "My Secret Public Journal Live," D.L. Hughley's "Notes From The GED Section" and Dave Attell's "Skanks For The Memories."
