There are many, many reasons as to why EXO‘s Lay is known as the “King of China” including his ability to top charts, completely destroy previous records, and earn all kinds of awards each and every comeback he has.
While Lay has already proven his kingly status more times than we can count, he recently took 9 major chart records on China’s largest music site, QQ Music, all within a matter of minutes!
Lay has recently been preparing to release his fourth album 莲 LIT and on May 29, pre-ordering opened up for the new album. Within 7 seconds of pre-orders opening, Lay had already achieved gold certification on the site.
In less than 15 seconds, he had already achieved triple-gold, platinum, double-platinum, and triple-platinum status. From there he took diamond, double-diamond, and hall of fame golden-diamond certification with over 750,000 copies sold…all in under a minute!
While Lay had already taken 8 major records on the site all within the first minute, in less than 10 minutes Lay snagged one more impressive achievement with 1.5 million copies sold. Previously, Lay had achieved epic status with his album Honey in 3 months but this time, Lay hit epic certification in 7 minutes and 19 seconds.
Taking 9 major chart records in less than 10 minutes and during pre-ordering? All hail king Lay! 莲 LIT, meanwhile, will be officially dropping on June 1!
