Jessica Jung Sees Solo Debut Enter World, Heatseekers Albums Charts
Jessica's first musical venture post-Girls' Generation is off to a promising start. The former girl group member sends her debut EP titled With Love, J: The First Mini Album to multiple Billboard charts including World and Heatseekers Albums this week.
On World Albums, With Love, J debuts at No. 4 which marks her first appearance on the chart and is the highest entry from a K-pop artist in a competitive week that sees two other Korean acts land new entries on the ranking. Meanwhile, over on the Heatseekers Albums chart -- which sees less K-pop acts -- Jessica's EP starts at No. 16.
With Love, J was promoted by the lead single "Fly," which featured Fabolous, and the track "Love Me the Same," both of which got accompanying music videos. "Fly" also makes an appearance on Billboard's World Digital Songs chart opening at No. 9.
Much was made about Jessica's solo debut seeing that it would not only mark her first music release since her mysterious and controversial exit from Girls' Generation, but also that she'd be competing against former band mate Tiffany on the charts with both their solo debuts releasing a week apart.
With Love, J will soon be released in an international version via an all-English EP consisting of five of the original six songs, according to Jessica's record label Coridel Entertainment.
