TWICE’s Nayeon debuted at No. 7 on Billboard 200, achieving the highest record ever for a K-pop solo artist.
According to Billboard, Nayeon’s first mini-album IM NAYEON landed at seventh place on the Billboard 200 chart released on July 9th. With this, Nayeon made new history by becoming the first K-pop solo artist to put her name on the top 10 of the chart.

Moreover, the smash also ranked on the Billboard World Album Chart.
