The 13-member boy band also hit a new peak on the Social 50 chart.
The 13-member group's new full-length effort, 02: Teen, Age, debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's World Albums chart, selling 1,000 copies in the week ending Nov. 9, according to Nielsen Music and marking the best-selling K-pop album in America this week. The LP also marks the group's second-best first-week sales in America, behind June's Al1 EP which holds their best sales week in America yet. The achievement also comes during a particularly competitive week among K-pop acts with new entries from Monsta X, Super Junior, EXID and Block B.
This is Seventeen's first No. 1 on World Albums in nearly two years after their Boys Be EP hit the top spot in 2015. Seventeen has sent all of their releases to the Top 10 of World Albums starting with two EPs in 2015 with 17 Carat (which eventually peaked at No. 8) and Boys Be (No. 1), followed by two releases in 2016 with their debut full-length Love & Letter (No. 3) and Going Seventeen EP (also No. 3), followed by this year's Al1 EP (No. 2).
