Seventeen sets new record for itself with No. 13 on Billboard 200 chart
Seventeen’s new EP “Attacca” entered the Billboard 200 at No. 13, the highest rank ever reached by the boy band on the chart, according to Pledis Entertainment on Tuesday.
The rank is two places higher than that reached by Seventeen’s previous EP “Your Choice,” which was released in June.
“Attacca” dropped on Oct. 22 and topped local album sales tracker Hanteo Chart for two consecutive weeks, selling over 1.3 million copies in the first week of its release. The EP is Seventeen’s fifth consecutive million-seller.
The Billboard 200 takes into account CD sales and number of online streams and downloads.
Pledis Entertainment added that “Attacca” also topped Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart.
Seventeen debuted in 2015 and is known for hits such as “Adore U” (2015), “Don't Wanna Cry” (2017) and “Ready to Love” (2021).
