The male outfit's triumphant return includes their eighth top 5 entry on the World Albums chart.
SHINee's embracing of the Light has led the 10-year-old K-pop outfit to new chart heights.
The boy band's latest release, The Story Of Light EP.1: The 6th Mini Album, sees the group hitting No. 2 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart -- a new peak for the band on the chart that sees fewer K-pop acts -- and No. 4 on the World Albums ranking. The EP sold 2,000 copies in the week ending June 1, according to Nielsen Music. The release marks the band's first new music since original member Jonghyun died late last year.
