Not only has it become their best-selling album to date, but it is also the only album by a K-Pop boy group besides BTS to reach the top 10 on the U.K. albums chart.

And once again, ATEEZ has yet another achievement to be proud of that shows just how successful they are in the K-Pop world and the music industry as a whole!


Billboard announced that the K-Pop group has made 105,500 copies in album sales, which is the highest first-week sales number that ATEEZ has had to date. In fact, it more than doubles their last record-holder, The World EP.1: MOVEMENT, which made 50,000 sales in the first week.

Not only that, but the group’s newest album reached the #2 position on the coveted Billboard 200 chart, which is the highest position reached by a non-“Big Four” (HYBE LabelsSM EntertainmentJYP Entertainment, & YG Entertainment) label.

ATINYs can’t contain their pride and excitement for this accomplishment on social media!

ATEEZ’s achievement even became the topic of conversation of a forum post, where netizens shared their own congratulations in the comments section.

Congratulations ATEEZ! Here’s to many more milestones and records reached in the near future!
