The singer's recently released solo album returns to No. 1 on World Albums with an additional 1,000 copies sold in the week ending Aug. 24, according to Nielsen Music. That pushes the eight-track set's cumulative total for the two weeks to 3,000 copies. The achievement makes him just the second solo K-pop artist and third K-pop act overall to have an album spend multiple weeks at No. 1 on the chart.
Among K-pop acts, only Taeyang, his BIGBANG band member G-Dragon, and BTS have logged more than one week at No. 1 with the same release on World Albums. Earlier this year, G-Dragon's Kwon Ji Yong became the first album by a solo K-pop star to spend multiple weeks atop the ranking, while BTS' 2015 EP The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2 and 2016 Wings album have also spent multiple weeks at No. 1.
