“Alive” is 4th on Billboard’s world album and more !


Big Bang has constantly been hitting headlines for the past few weeks with its comeback album “Alive“. Last month, YG entertainment  announced that the boys will be actively promoting all six tracks in the album. Since then, the boys have been extremely busy filming their  music videos and variety shows for promotion. So far, three music videos have been out and all of three have been receiving much love and praises worldwide. V.I.Ps have been more than thrilled to see the boys not only being back on their feet but also up and running at an amazing rate. Therefore, it is no surprising to see Big Bang being on top of all Korean charts and music stations!

 

The popularity of Big Bang has also been spreading like a wild fire internationally, so much so that their album “ALIVE” ranks 4th place on “World Album” catergory of “Billboard charts“! This category is made up of this week’s top-selling world music albums and ranked by sales data which has been compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

In addition, BIGBANG’s album “Alive” has debuted on the US chart at 150th , one spot above Justin Bieber’s “My World 2.0.”. It is quite impressive as the group has not promoted the album in the U.S. and the fact that it is a Korean language album. BIGBANG sets another record as this marks the first time a K-Pop group has made such an achievement.

Furthermore, they also rank 4th on the Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and 22th on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart in addition to taking four out of the top five spots in “K-pop 100 charts of Billboard”.
