(G)I-DLE has made their first-ever Billboard entry.
The group’s 5th mini-album I love ranked 71st on Billboard 200 chart, according to Billboard on November 1st.
The album’s title track “Nxde” came in 13th on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart as well as 198th on the Global chart.
It’s their first time entering Billboard’s main chart since their debut, and it’s noteworthy that they achieved such a feat without the help of a major US label, which makes the accomplishment more meaningful.
‘Nxde” has been dominating multiple South Korean music charts since its release.
The group’s new album I love topped the iTunes Tob Album chart in over 40 different countries upon its release. Moreover, it sold more than 678,000 copies in its first week, recording a 284 percent increase compared to that of their previous release.
Thanks to their new album, (G)I-DLE has proved to have a strong fan base in and out of South Korea. The group made their debut four years ago and is expected to grow more popular in the future.
