Top 9 Hottest First Week Album Sales (Male Idol Groups)
Even with the prevalence of music streaming services today, album sales believe it or not still matter in some parts of the music industry.
To be more precise, in the K-Pop scene, it is still a subject that is relevant to labels and artists alike. Which is also why it makes the K-Pop industry a unique sector that is differentiated from other music markets. It is a reflection of artists’ fanbase and an objective representation of their influence within the industry. Album sales are indeed still substantially profitable and A-list idol groups such as BTS, EXO, and Wanna One are proving just that.
BTS’s recent album release ‘Love Yourself: Her” has managed to hit approximately 760,000 album sales, a jaw-dropping figure considering that the majority of the world no longer buys albums like they used to back in the day. It’s something for even people who aren’t K-Pop fans should stop and think about for a moment. Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that the K-Pop industry is doing something right.
