Taeyang’s ‘Rise’ hits top spot



Taeyang from boy band Big Bang released his second full-length album “Rise,” reaching No. 1 on at least 10 Korean music outlets with its lead track “Eyes, Nose, Lips,” yesterday.

“Eyes, Nose, Lips,” which was released yesterday at midnight, reached the top on Melon, Mnet, Olleh Music and more in less than three hours.

On some online charts like Mnet and Olleh Music, other tracks like “1AM” and “This Ain’t It” were also seen on the top 10 lists.

“Rise” is Taeyang’s return as a solo artist for the first time in four months, since his latest single “Ringa Linga,” and his first comeback in four years since his last full-length album “Solar” in 2010.
