NCT 127’s new album Sticker Shouldn’t drop for more than three weeks, but it has already become a bestseller in the band’s home country of South Korea, proving once again that they rank among the most popular musical groups. of the country … and beyond.
The boy group’s next album Sticker was recently made available to fans for pre-order, and their significant number of fans have been rushing to secure their copy in large numbers. According to Naver, NCT’s new feature film 127 has sold 1.329 million copies from day one it was available to order.
It’s not uncommon for highly anticipated projects from the biggest names in the South Korean music industry to rack up hundreds of thousands of sales or even pre-orders when they are first released, as the market is still focused on them. purchases, as opposed to rivers, to which many western territories have passed. While the number of big sales is common, selling a million CDs in a single day is almost unheard of, and only the most successful acts can come close to this milestone.
Sticker will be NCT 127’s third Korean-language feature film and their fourth overall, as they also released a Japanese project. The track is expected to be promoted with the lead single “Sticker”, which could easily become a huge hit as well.
With over a million pre-orders already registered, Sticker is almost guaranteed to open at No.1 on the South Korean charts. When it does, that will bring NCT 127 back to No. 1 on the Gaon Albums chart for the seventh time, and the track will instantly become their ninth top 10 in the country.
If sales figures specific to the US market are not yet available, Sticker could easily become another major hit on the Billboard 200 when it hits a month or so. NCT 127 narrowly missed the top 10 overall in 2019 when their EP We are superhuman peaked at No. 11, then last year their entirety Neo Zone rose to No.5, making them one of the few South Korean boy groups to break into the top tier of the tally. They have a very good chance of repeating this demonstration next month, because Sticker has got off to an incredible start and the promotion is just beginning.
