The new album is SHINee's first release as a group since 2013's Everybody, which peaked at No. 2 on World Albums the week of Nov. 2. The quintet last the topped the chart with another 2013 release, Why So Serious?: The Misconceptions of Me, that ruled the week of May 11.
SHINee's earning a second No. 1 on World Albums makes them just the fifth K-pop act to score multiple chart-toppers on the tally. They join EXO, Girls' Generation-TTS and G-Dragon (all with two) plus B.A.P (with three). Furthermore, SHINee member Jonghyun has now graced the top slot three times: twice with his bandmates and once with his solo EP Base. Notably, three out of the five acts to earn multiple chart-toppers come from SM Entertainment with SHINee, Girls' Generation-TTS and EXO all managed by the same Korean label.
Odd is led by the house-inspired single "View," which debuts at No. 2 on the World Digital Songs chart, making it the biggest-selling K-pop song in America this week, along with the highest new entry this week.
