The “one-two-seven squad” made another remarkable feat with their second full-length album NCT #127 Neo Zone as it carves its place into NCT 127 history as the only album to make a Top Five debut on the Billboard 200 chart so far!

On March 15, Billboard revealed the rankings for the top albums on its U.S Billboard 200 chart for the week of March 21. Amassing a total of 87,000 equivalent album units recorded for its first week, the group’s latest release NCT #127 Neo Zone had successfully made its debut at the number five spot on the chart.

Moreover, 83,000 of the 87,000 album units come from pure album sales, showing the strong purchasing power of NCTzens. This achievement also marks a personal new best for the group as it becomes their highest ranking on the chart, with an astounding 3.3 times higher score than their previous record with We Are Superhuman.

This success of NCT #127 Neo Zone on the chart comes unsurprisingly, especially with its thundering performance on both domestic and international music charts.

Upon its release, the album successfully owned the number one spot in the iTunes charts for a total of 32 countries. It also topped major domestic music charts and broke the group’s personal record for highest pre-order sales as it surpassed the 530,000-mark on March 5.

With this recent success, NCT 127 joins BTS, Super M, and MONSTA X as the only K-Pop groups to debut on the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart.
