TXT Proves Global Power With Impressive Debut On Oricon And Billboard Charts
TXT continues its successful debut on Oricon and Billboard charts!
After setting admirable records in South Korea, TXT extends its debut success on Japan’s Oricon and United States’ Billboard charts with high positions for its first mini album The Dream Chapter: STAR.
The EP set a record in South Korea as the best-selling debut album for 2019 rookie K-Pop groups. It made its debut on Oricon‘s weekly album chart at the third spot and went on to lead the Foreign Language Album chart for the week of March 4 to 10.
Additionally, the boy group, who has yet to formally debut in Japan, ranked number one on LINE MUSIC — adding another incredible feat to its growing list of accolades.
Still, TXT’s success does not stop in Asia as Yeonjun, Soobin, Huening Kai, Taehyun, and Beomgyu make their first appearance on Billboard charts at the top of the Emerging Artists chart. The boy group became the fourth K-Pop group to top the chart, the first K-Pop act to do so in 2019, and the fifth act to debut at the number one spot.
Moreover, The Dream Chapter: STAR debuted at the 140th place on Billboard 200 with 7,000 equivalent units earned in the United States in the week ending March 7. It creates a new record as the highest charting debut album of a K-Pop boy group on the said chart.
The EP also topped the World Albums chart, ending the 15-week reign of Big Hit Entertainment senior boy group BTS. It also took the second spot on this week’s Heatseekers Albums chart and the 26th spot on the Top Album Sales chart.
Four tracks from The Dream Chapter: STAR ranked at the World Digital Song Sales chart. The EP’s title track “Crown” leads the chart at number one. “Blue Orangeade”, “Cat & Dog”, and “Our Summer” place tenth, 14th, and 17th, respectively.
