GOT7's 'Flight Log: Turbulence' Ties the Record for Most No. 1s on World Albums Among K-Pop Acts
The seven-member boy band's new LP debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's World Albums chart. With about two days of sales from its Sept. 27 release, the 13-track LP sold 2,000 copies.
Perhaps most impressively, Flight Log: Turbulence marks GOT7's third album to top World Albums. This feat ties them with fellow boy band B.A.P for most No. 1s on the chart among K-pop acts. GOT7 started their chart run strong by sending their debut EP Got It (featuring their debut single "Girls Girls Girls") to the top spot in January 2014. The boys topped the chart more than a year-and-a-half later with their Mad EP (boasting the emotional single "If You Do") in October 2015, and now can claim another chart-topper just a year later with this full-length LP.
GOT7 has earned four other entries on World Albums to date including their Got Love EP (which peaked at No. 6 in 2014), Identity (also No. 6 in 2014), the Mad: Winter Edition album (No. 12 in 2015), and their Fly EP (No. 2 earlier in 2016).
GOT7 and B.A.P now reign over the K-pop acts with multiple No. 1s. To date, the only other acts to score more than one chart-topper are EXO, Girls' Generation, G-Dragon, SHINee, f(x) and Girls' Generation-TTS.
Elsewhere on the chats, GOT7 match their best ranking on Billboard's World Digital Songs chart with the lead single from Turbulence, "Hard Carry." The aggressive electronic-rap track debuts at No. 2 on the chart. The group last charted that high earlier this year when "Fly" hit No. 2.
