Rookie group iKON is steadily making headway in the international market, as their first full-length album “Welcome Back” debuted at No. 2 on Billboard‘s World Albums Chart!
Billboard is one of the most popular music charts in the United States, so the ranking is no small feat for a Korean group, let alone a rookie group. The album also debuted at No. 23 on the Heatseekers Chart.
Meanwhile, the group is currently promoting their double title tracks “Dumb and Dumber” and “What’s Wrong?” iKON also are strong contenders for rookie awards at the upcoming Seoul Music Awards, Golden Disc Awards, and Gaon Music Awards.
Congratulations to iKON for the achievement!
