Girls' Generation's latest No. 1 follows their other chart-topper on World Albums, 2013's I Got a Boy. GG is now the sixth K-pop act to score multiple No. 1s on the ranking. They join SHINee, EXO, G-Dragon and their own splinter sub-unit consisting of members Taeyeon, Tiffany and Seohyun in Girls' Generation-TTS (all with two), plus B.A.P (with three). Notably, four out of the six acts to earn multiple chart-toppers come from SM Entertainment: Girls' Generation, Girls' Generation-TTS, SHINee and EXO are all under the same Korean label.
