Last year, EXO‘s Sehun and Chanyeol quickly took over the charts and swept numerous records when they made their dynamic subunit debut as EXO-SC. On July 13, they made their first comeback with the release of their first full-length album 1 Billion Views and proved they are a seriously powerful force once more!
With various music sites updating their charts to reflect the period of July 13 to July 19, EXO-SC has claimed top spots on weekly album charts including Hanteo Chart, Synnara Records, Yes24, and Hot Tracks.
That, however, was just the domestic charts. EXO-SC also took no. 1 on the Digital Sales Chart from QQ Music, Kugou Music, and Kuwo Music. To top it off, they also ranked no. 1 in 51 regions around the world on iTunes‘ Top Album Chart.
In addition to completely dominating the charts, EXO-SC also grabbed some new records. According to the Hanteo Chart, 1 Billion Views sold a total of 412,588 copies in the first week, breaking the record for the highest first-week album sales by a subunit on Hanteo.
On QQ Music, meanwhile, EXO-SC claimed a Double Platinum certification selling over 80,000 copies, and snagged the record for doing so in the shortest amount of time in 2020.
Now we’re off to celebrate with “1 Billion Views”!
