Winner Does It Again and Takes the Number One Spot of Billboard World Album Chart


YG’s rookie group WINNER (members Kang Seung Yoon, Lee Seung Hoon, Song Min Ho, Nam Tae Hyun, and Kim Jin Woo) continue their winning streak, having nabbed the number one spot on Billboard’s World Album Chart with their new—and first—album “2014 S/S.”

The album was released this past August 12, and has been on a successful trip towards numerous victories on multiple music charts and music shows. The fact that this rookie group got the top spot in their first week of release is a big achievement. Though it is not in the top 200 list of the main Billboard Chart, this achievement is garnering much attention because it was through competition with music albums all over the world outside of the United States.

Meanwhile, their first title song, “Empty,” took the number one spot on numerous charts, and even brought home their first music show win on the most recent episode of Mnet‘s “M!Countdown” that aired August 21 (you can view it here). Their next performance will be on the upcoming episode of SBS “Inkigayo” set to air on August 25. Their music video can be seen below.

What do you guys think of the song and/or the group?
