The album, “Coup D’Etat,” sold over 100,000 copies and has become the second most popular album in the first week of December.

On the newest record the singer included songs he first released in Korea on mini-albums “One of a Kind” in 2012 and “Heartbreaker” in 2009.

He also introduced the songs “Crooked,” “Who You,” and “Black” in Japanese. Park Bom of girl group 2NE1 also contributed her talents to the Japanese version of “Black.”
