X1 Just Broke This Record That Even Seasoned Idols Can’t Break

Most groups will never achieve this.

Produce X 101’s winning group X1 made their debut last August 27 with their title track Flash.

Only a few days after their debut, they have already reached a major milestone that most K-Pop groups never achieve.

X1’s album “Quantum Leap” became one of the highest selling debut albums ever, with current sales at 412,000 copies.

This is a major feat that only the top K-Pop groups have accomplished, easily securing them a spot in the top selling albums of 2019.

They also ranked high among other best-selling debuts so far. They have sold more than NCT with 361,792, putting them at third place after EXO‘s 528,460.

WANNA ONE has sold the most debut albums at 802,045 with their summer hit Energetic.

Netizens could not stop commending X1 for their achievement.

Congratulations, this really makes me realize how strong their core fans are. As expected from Produce series.

They are pretty big nationally but they also have a lot of fans overseas.
