It has been a little over a week since ATEEZ released their latest album, The World EP.2: OUTLAW, on June 16, and in that time the K-Pop group has broken numerous impressive records for itself!
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 Labels, SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, & YG Entertainment) label.
Billboard 200: #2(new) ATEEZ (@ATEEZofficial), THE WORLD EP.2 : OUTLAW 105,500 [6.32 million on-demand streams | 101,000 pure sales].
