Red Velvet celebrate their first No. 1 on a Billboard chart as their debut full-length The Red: The 1st Album opens at No. 1 on World Albums.

The rookie girl group sent the 12-track LP not only to World Albums, but also onto the Heatseekers Albums chart, a tally that sees much less K-pop. The Red debuts at No. 24, which ties the quintet's best ranking on the chart after their Ice Cream EP hit the same spot in March. Red Velvet previously peaked at No. 2 on World Albums when Ice Cream debuted in the runner-up slot earlier this year.
