Even before it had officially been released, EXO Baekhyun‘s first solo debut mini-album had already set an impressive record and inspired a brand new viral challenge but when it dropped, Baekhyun truly dominated!
On July 10, Baekhyun blessed us all with his solo debut album, City Lights, and immediately after it’s release Baekhyun became the 5th solo artist in the past decade to sell over 100,000 albums!
Baekhyun didn’t stop there, however! Baekhyun also broke a previous record held by EXO when he placed no. 1 on iTunes charts in 62 countries including the U.S, the Philippines, Australia, Canada, and the United Arab Emirates to name a few!
