Seventeen Return to Top 5 of World Albums & World Digital Song Sales Charts With 'You Made My Dawn'
The song sales from the boy band's new album seem to indicate their American fans may prefer their darker, aggressive side.
From the summer's You Make My Day to their new winter release You Made My Dawn, Seventeen is proving themselves to be a chart force no matter what season.
The 13-member boy band see their new SEVENTEEN 6th Mini Album: You Made My Dawn EP debut at No. 4 on Billboard's World Album chart, earning 2,000 equivalent album units in the week end Jan. 24, according to Nielsen Music. Altogether, You Made My Dawn sold 1,000 copies in traditional album sales, while earning one million on-demand U.S. streams in the tracking week as well. The album is the highest new entry on this week's World Albums, becoming Seventeen's ninth Top 10 hit and and the band's eighth album to enter the Top 5 (only their debut EP, 17 Carat from 2015, missed the Top 5 after peaking at No. 8).
You Made My Dawn also enters the Heatseekers Albums chart at No. 13, marking the act's seventh entry on a tally that sees far fewer K-pop acts making moves.
Perhaps most notably about Seventeen's chart activity this comeback comes on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart. The aggressive hip-hop cut "Getting Closer" -- which was revealed via a music video nearly a month ago on Dec. 20, 2018 as the initial teaser to Dawn but not made available for download -- debuts at No. 5 with about 1,000 copies sold. The EP's official single "Home," meanwhile, debuts at No. 7 on the chart, also selling about 1,000 copies but slightly less than "Closer," perhaps indicating that American audiences prefer a the darker side of Seventeen. "Getting Closer" marks Seventeen's highest-charting hit on World Digital Songs since 2018's "Thanks" peaked at No. 4. To date, Seventeen's highest entry is still "Very Nice" which peaked at No. 2 in 2016.
With the addition of these new tracks, Seventeen now becomes the act with the ninth-most career entries ever on World Digital Song Sales. "Getting Closer" and "Home" become the group's 23rd and 24th songs on the chart, surpassing Super Junior who currently have 23 total career entries.
