ITZY Joins BLACKPINK, TWICE, & IZ*ONE as the Only Girl Group to Reach This First-Week Album Sales Record
On April 30, JYP Entertainment’s five-member girl group, ITZY, returned with a new album entitled “GUESS WHO,” together with a music video for the title track, “Mafia in the Morning.” The album is composed of a total of six songs.
From the day of its release, the album has recorded thousands of sales on the Hanteo Chart. On the first day of sales, a total of 64,119 copies of ITZY’s “GUESS WHO” were sold. This is the girl group’s new highest first-day sales on the chart.
The album copies sold on the following days were: 9,380 (2nd day), 3,047 (3rd day), 75,652 (4th day), 23,896 (5th day), 111 (6th day), and 23,925 (7th day). ITZY’s overall album sales record in the first week is 200,130.
Given that more than 200,000 copies of “GUESS WHO” were sold in the first seven days, ITZY has achieved a major milestone on Hanteo Chart. The quintet has now become the fourth K-pop girl group to exceed 200,000 album copies sold in the first week of release, following BLACKPINK, TWICE, and IZ*ONE.
BLACKPINK has two albums with more than 200,000 copies sold in the first seven days. Their first single album “How You Like That” had 204,334 copies, while their first full-length album “THE ALBUM” had 689,066 copies.
TWICE also has two albums to achieve the feat on Hanteo Chart. Their ninth mini-album “MORE & MORE,” which was released in June last year, reached 332,416 copies sold in the first week. Meanwhile, their second full-length album “Eyes Wide Open” had 245,631 copies.
