Big Bang Dominates Music Charts of Korea & iTunes International.

While it was expected that Big Bang’s new album would make it tao the top of many of Korea’s music charts, the hip hop group has established dominance on Mnet’s singles chart, placed on the top ten of iTunes’ worldwide album chart, and sold an estimated 100,000 albums on its day of release!

Big Bang’s comeback album was certainly anticipated by many, but few would have been able to predict the whirl of albums sold and charts topped within a day of its release. A Korean music store reported first-day sales of Big Bang’s fourth mini album to be 58,000, making it very likely that over 100,00 albums were sold in total on its first day.

In addition, the group’s first single from the album, “Tonight,” has topped Mnet’s weekly chart for February 21-28. Once the entire album was released, all six of its tracks established themselves in Mnet’s top ten single’s chart by taking all 1-6 positions!

Finally, Big Bang has broken an important record by placing #6 on iTunes Top Ten albums chart. While other Korean artists had managed to chart on iTunes under their respective genres, Big Bang is the first to break into the iTunes’ top ten total album sales. Making the feat even more impressive, Big Bang has never officially promoted in America!

As Big Bang is expected to debut in the United States this summer, we can predict them to be very successful if their current iTunes sales are any indication!

p/s : To debut in The States , Big Bang is going for International.
