With her "Butterfly" comeback, the singer further solidifies her place as one of K-pop's leading solo females on the charts.
Even after three years away, Ailee proves she's still a chart force with her latest album release.
The solo superstar sees her new full-length effort Butterfly debut at No. 13 on Billboard's World Albums chart dated July 13, 2019, marking her first entry on the chart since 2016. The singer now has scored four entries total: In 2014, her Magazine EP landed her first World Albums entry (when it peaked at No. 10), the next year her Vivid album earned her highest position yet (at No. 6), then in 2016 Ailee bowed with A New Empire (which hit No. 9), before Butterfly this past week.
With four entries on the tally, Ailee now jumps in her ranking of solo female K-pop acts with the most entries on World Albums. She now ties the likes of BoA, HyunA and Lee Hi (all with four each), and is only behind Taeyeon (who has six) and IU (five).
