Almost seven years into their career, GOT7 continue to prove their strength as consistent chart-toppers.
GOT7’s newly released Dye EP debuts at No. 4 on Billboard‘s World Albums chart, marking the K-pop group’s 11th top five entry to date. Dye earns 4,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 23, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Of that total, 3,000 came from traditional album sales.
Dye marks the septet’s best sales week in more than three years, coming in just behind the chart debut weeks of Flight Log: Arrival (which debuted in April 2017) and Fly (April 2016). So far, GOT7’s best-selling album in America is Fly with 7,000 albums sold to date.
This new release also sends GOT7 to new peaks on both Top Current Albums (at No. 27 on the sales-only focused chart of recent, current releases) as well as Top Album Sales (No. 32 on the sales-only focused chart of all releases). It all shows a strong sales push for the group even as traditional album sales in America were impacted early by coronavirus concerns.
Over on the World Digital Song Sales chart, GOT7’s new single “Not by the Moon” starts at No. 5 on the tally, marking the group’s 14th Top 5 entry. The moody R&B-pop track sold 1,000 copies in the week ending April 23, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Taking inspiration from Romeo and Juliet, “Not by the Moon” and the larger Dye EP all spotlight a much more dramatic and romantic side of GOT7 — all displaying a more mature side of the boy band. Like past releases, the GOT7 members were heavily involved in several of the album’s standout tracks including slick synth-pop opener “Aura” (co-written and co-produced by powerhouse vocalist Youngjae), the snappy and sentimental “Love You Better” (co-written by Jinyoung, another powerhouse singer in the group) and the glitchy, synth-y “Crazy” (co-written and co-produced leader JB).
