The new album consists of 10 songs, including “Haegeum,” the prereleased song “People Pt. 2 (Feat. IU),” “D-Day,” “Huh?! (Feat. J-Hope),” “Amygdala,” “SDL,” “Interlude: Dawn” and “Snooze (Feat. Ryuichi Sakamoto, Kim Woo-sung of The Rose).”

BigHit said “Haegeum” ranked No. 3 on the Oricon daily digital singles chart, and several other songs, including “Snooze,” “Huh?!” and “Life Goes On,” also landed in the top 20.

In South Korea, Suga’s album sold over 1,070,000 copies in the first day of its release, posting the biggest first-day sales ever among K-pop solo albums, according to data from Hanteo Chart, a local album sales tracker.
