GOT7 Earn Second No. 1 on World Albums
GOT7 fans clearly weren't "Mad" about the K-pop boy band's latest release. The septet celebrate their second No. 1 on World Albums along with their first appearance on Heatseekers Albums chart with their new Mad EP.
Led by the melancholy single "If You Do," the six-track set crowns World Albums, marking the second time the band has since their 2014 debut. The guys' very-first EP, Got It?, topped the ranking in February 2014 and the boys have landed two other entires on the chart including 2014 releases Got Love (which peaked at No. 6) and Identity (also No. 6), while 2015's Just Right EP missed the chart.
Mad also bows at No. 15 on Heatseekers Albums, marking the first appearance for the band to date. Typically, it's more rare to find K-pop albums on Heatseekers (only nine Korean acts have bowed on the tally in 2015) and GOT7's first appearance on it indicates growing album sales stateside.
Furthermore, GOT7 earning multiple chart toppers on World Albums puts them in an elite group of K-pop groups with more than one No. 1. They join six other acts including EXO, Girls' Generation, Girls' Generation-TTS, G-Dragon and SHINee (all with two) plus B.A.P (with three).
