Plus, a look at the debut sales and chart stats from the other three "Produce" groups.
After being created on Korea's sensational singing-competition show Produce X 101, new boy band X1 sees how the fanaticism is translating in America with their debut EP Quantum Leap entering Billboard's World Albums chart at No. 9.
The 11-member boy band comes from the fourth overall season in Korea's Produce series following three popular-but-temporary groups: two girl groups in I.O.I and IZ*ONE, respectively created on Season 1 of Produce 101 and the third season titled Produce 48, and boy band Wanna One, created on the second season of Produce 101. Compared to the Billboard debuts from their fellow Produce acts, X1 and IZ*ONE both tie for the second-highest charting debut. IZ*ONE's Color*Iz album peaked at No. 9 on World Albums as well, while only Wanna One fared better when their 1X1=1 (To Be One) album hit No. 3.
Among the Produce acts debut albums, Wanna One's 1X1=1 also claims the biggest sales to date (with 3,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen Music), followed by IZ*ONE's Color*Iz (2,000 copies sold) and then I.O.I's debut EP Chrysalis (1,000 copies).
