Male group B.A.P‘s first studio album “First Sensibility” has quickly become an international success.
The album was released on February 5, and 24 hours later, it landed in the top ten of iTunes Store Top 10 Hip-Hop Albums all around the world. It placed first in Japan, Norway, Canada, and Sweden; second in the UK, the US, and Finland; third in Denmark; and fourth in Australia.
As of February 7, “First Sensibility” is placed first in Canada and Japan, and second in the US. Considering that the charts are usually dominated by world stars Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kanye West and others, it is a remarkable achievement to top the charts.
In addition, the album placed 44th on iTunes Top 100 Album Chart in the US right after its release, and landed in the Top 100 of 12 countries overall. Continuing the success of B.A.P’s previous releases “One Shot” and “Badman,” these numbers prove that the group’s international fanbase is most certainly strong and active.
B.A.P is currently promoting their title track “1004 (Angel),” and will hold their solo concert “B.A.P Live on Earth Seoul 2014” in March.
