"The Name Chapter: Temptation," the latest album by boy band Tomorrow X Together, also known as TXT, went straight to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart on Sunday.
Billboard said their fifth mini album "earned 161,500 equivalent album units" since its release on Jan. 27, which include CD album sales, digital downloads and streaming data.
It is "the third top 10-charting effort for TXT, which reached the top 10 previously with 'Minisode 2: Thursday's Child' (No. 4) and in 2021 with 'The Chaos Chapter: Freeze' (No. 5)," according to Billboard.
TXT are already the fifth K-pop act to achieve the feat after Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS in 2018, SuperM in 2019, Stray Kids in 2022 and Blackpink in 2022.
The boys said they had dreamed of topping the chart but never expected it would come true.
In Korea, the album reached the 2 million sales milestone six days after its release. The achievement came three years and 11 months after their debut, faster than any other K-pop acts, according to their management agency Big Hit Music.
