EXO Kai‘s first mini-album, KAI, has just broken the record for most number 1’s for a solo EP in iTunes history! The album reached the top of the Worldwide Album chart in 73 countries, which is the most a soloist EP has ever gotten.
Before Kai, Selena Gomez‘s “Revelación” held the record for a solo EP with 45 Number 1’s on iTunes. Selena Gomez’s fans did not know anyone had beat her, however, so EXO-L’s kindly informed them, and they grew to love Kai as well! The fandoms now formed a beautiful friendship.
We wanna apologize to all EXO’s stans for the mistake we did today about the #1’s on iTunes. I wanna congratulate all these people because NONE of them were agressive or arrogant. This is what the world needs, y'all are incredible! 🥰
