SEOUL, Feb. 2 (Korea Bizwire) — K-pop boy group Tomorrow X Together’s latest album sold more than 2 million copies in the first week of its release, the group’s agency said Thursday.
“The Name Chapter: Temptation,” the quintet’s fifth EP, sold 2,027,817 copies as of Wednesday, only six days after it dropped, BigHit Music said.
“TXT came to have its first album that sold more than 2 million copies in its first week of release, three years and 11 months after its debut,” the agency said in a release. “It became the youngest K-pop act to set the record.”
“Sugar Rush Ride,” the main track off the EP, has stayed high on domestic music charts, unusually for a song from a boy group.
The album depicts youths swaying in front of the temptation to live in the present while enjoying freedom and entertainment even though they know they have to grow up.
