GOT7's 'Arrival' Lands Fourth No. 1 on World Albums Chart, Scores Best First-Week Sales
GOT7 can rest easy after their Arrival earned them a slew of new chart accomplishments.
The septet's new Flight Log: Arrival EP debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's World Albums chart with about 3,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. Arrival marks the boy band's best sales week in America, selling a few hundred copies more than their previous best when they they moved also around 3,000 copies with their Flight Log: Departure EP. The accomplishment makes Arrival the best-selling K-pop album in America this week.
Earning their fourth No. 1 on World Albums means GOT7 is tied for the most chart-toppers on the ranking among K-pop acts...once again. When their Flight Log: Turbulence album topped the ranking in October 2016, they tied with fellow boy band B.A.P for three chart-toppers apiece. B.A.P pulled back ahead a month later with their latest No. 1 with their Noir album, but now GOT7 has caught up with their fourth entry at the chart's peak. The race is on for each to score their fifth.
GOT7 and B.A.P lead among all K-pop acts with four No. 1s each. Behind them, BTS has three chart-toppers on World Albums, followed by more than a half dozen acts with two No. 1s, a list that includes Girls' Generation, G-Dragon, SHINee, f(x), EXO, Red Velvet, and Girls' Generation-TTS.
The band also earn their fourth entry on the Heatseekers Album chart with Arrival debuting at No. 3, their second-best position on the ranking. Heatseekers typically sees a much smaller number of Korean acts, but GOT7 has four entires to date: October 2015's Mad EP (which debuted at No. 15,) Flight Log: Departure (No. 2) and Flight Log: Turbulence (No. 7).
Elsewhere, GOT7 also scores America's best-selling K-pop song as Arrival's lead single "Never Ever" debuts at No. 3 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart. Along with the glitch-y, electro-pop single, Arrival's standout album cut "Paradise" also lands on the ranking at No. 23. To date, GOT7's best chart rankings are shared between singles "Fly" and "Hard Carry," both of which peaked at No. 2 on World Digital Song Sales.
