BLACKPINK’s Japanese album tops Oricon’s weekly chart

September 5, 2017

SEOUL, Sept. 5 (Yonhap) — BLACKPINK’s first album released in Japan on Tuesday rose to the top of a weekly chart run by Oricon, the country’s key music sales tracker.

The team’s Japanese debut EP album titled “BLACKPINK” stood at No. 1 on Oricon’s Weekly CD album chart as of the week of Sept. 11, according to Oricon. The record has sold some 39,000 copies since its Aug. 30 release.

BLACKPINK became the third-ever international artist to conquer Oricon’s weekly chart through a debut record after Russian duo tATu in March 2003 and South Korea’s 2NE1 in September 2011.

The quartet, one of the biggest breakout stars in K-pop last year, is YG’s first girl group in seven years after the now-disbanded 2NE1.

The album includes the Korean and Japanese versions of the group’s hits “Boombayah,” “Whistle” and “Playing With Fire,” among others.

The band held a Japanese debut showcase at the Budokan in Tokyo last month and also performed at A-Nation held at Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo.
