Kang Daniel Surpasses 316,000 Album Sales For Mini Album “YELLOW”
Kang Daniel accomplishes another outstanding feat in his booming career, all thanks to his latest comeback album “YELLOW!”
Multitalented soloist Kang Daniel continues to break barriers by marking his “YELLOW” comeback with a brand-new remarkable sales achievement.
On April 13, Hanteo Chart announced that the idol’s latest mini-album YELLOW has recorded 316,542 copies sold during its first week. This makes it the 8th best-selling album released by a soloist of all time.
Proving his amazing worldwide influence, YELLOW also sold more than 200,000 copies on the first day of its release, making it Daniel’s second best-selling album following his debut EP Color on Me.
In addition, all four albums released by the dazzling soloist from his debut in July 2019 also secured their own spots on Hanteo’s Top 10 initial sales by a solo artist. Aside from the aforementioned albums, CYAN and MAGENTA were included in the said chart.
All of these became a fitting present for Daniel, who worked hard in producing the album full of deep messages. Falling under a darker theme, YELLOW reflects the soloist’s personal journey and thoughts. Daniel drew inspiration from the happenings during his recent hiatus in order to create the powerful tracks that came with the album.
AN ACHIEVEMENT WORTHY OF PRAISES
Adding to the list of his accolades, the artist’s title track “Antidote” immediately conquered major local charts such as Genie and Bugs.
When it comes to international performance, the catchy song also dominated iTunes charts in several countries including Chile, Philippines and Indonesia.
Meanwhile, YELLOW also scored the No. 1 spot in iTunes Album Chart in at least 7 regions including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
As of current writing, the official music video for “Antidote” has accumulated 35 million views on YouTube.
Significantly, the cinematic MV reached 10 million views in 12 hours, 20 million views after 40 hours and 30 million views in 4 days.
As if these weren’t enough, Daniel was also able to score 2 consecutive music show wins with his newest single particularly on SBS’ The Show and MBC’s Show Champion.
