Baekhyun breaks record for most album sales by solo artist during first week of release
Exo member Baekhyun’s third EP “Bambi” broke the record for most album sales by a solo artist during the first week of release, according to SM Entertainment on Tuesday.
“Bambi” dropped on March 30, and sold approximately 868,000 copies over the past week.
Baekhyun broke his own record, which was set by his previous EP “Delight” (2020) that sold 704,000 copies in the first week of its release.
“Bambi” topped the iTunes’ Top Album Charts in 60 regions. It also went double platinum on the Chinese music streaming service QQ music.
The singer will become a “double million seller” artist if “Bambi” sells over a million copies as “Delight” did.
Baekhyun debuted in 2012 as a member of boy band Exo and launched his solo career in 2019.
