Rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again narrowly beats Drake in this week’s Billboard 200 album chart, collecting his No. 4 leader in the charts as his new ensemble Sincerely, Kentrell surpasses the Canadian musician by just 2,000 equivalent units. The set may be the No. 1 title in the US this framework, but it is not winning in terms of outright sales. This honor is claimed by one of the biggest names in the K-pop space, as a beloved girl group launches their new project to the top of the sales tally, making history as they arrive.
Itzy launches his very first feature film Crazy in Love # 1 in this week’s best-selling album chart, which ranks releases based on the number of copies, physical or digital, purchased. The group’s latest project sold just under 22,000 copies in its first tracking framework, according to figures shared by MRC Data. That’s enough to put him in the top spot, ahead of new releases from Angels & Airwaves, Sufjan Stevens, and the aforementioned YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
With their first No. 1 on the album bestseller chart under their belt, Itzy instantly becomes the third South Korean girl group to rise to the top of the buy-only list.
The first all-female South Korean vocal group to reach # 1 on the Best Selling Albums chart was Blackpink, who pulled off the feat almost exactly a year ago. The quartet’s first feature film The album opened in the first place, and it also nearly conquered the Billboard 200.
Just a few months ago, Twice joined Blackpink in this feat, becoming the second South Korean girl group to reign on the best-selling album charts. The act is Taste of love also debuted at the top of the count, becoming a bestseller upon launch.
Surprisingly, Itzy is also only the third South Korean all-female vocal troupe to reach the top 10 on the best-selling album charts. Blackpink is leading the way in this regard, as they rose to the top and placed a previous title, their Kill this love EP, at n ° 10.
