While much fanfare and debate has been made over CLC's fierce transformation for confident new single "Hobgoblin," the charts are declaring it a success. "Hobgoblin" and its accompanying Crystyle EP mark the first appearances for the young girl group on both of Billboard's World Digital Song Sales and World Albums charts.

Most notably, CLC scores the best-selling K-pop song in America this week as their track debuts at No. 4 on World Digital Song Sales, rising above BIGBANG (at No. 5 with "Fxxk It"), Chanyeol and Punch (at No. 6 with "Stay With Me"), BTS (No. 7 is "Blood Sweat & Tears"), and V and Jin (No. 8 with "It's Definitely You"). To date, CLC has released and promoted six K-pop singles since their March 2015 debut.

Meanwhile, the Crystyle EP debuts at a respectable No. 6 on World Albums, this time landing behind the latest releases from Seohyun, BIGBANG and BTS. It's also their first appearance on the chart after five Korean releases to their name.
