SHINee’s Jonghyun has made his Billboard 200 debut!
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums, and streaming equivalent albums.
Jonghyun’s posthumous album “Poet | Artist” entered the chart at No. 177 for the week ending in February 3. According to Nielsen Music, the album earned 5,000 equivalent album units, with 4,000 of the sum coming from traditional album sales.
So far, only 10 other K-pop acts have charted on the Billboard 200, with Jonghyun being the fourth soloist to do so. As announced earlier, “Poet | Artist” also took the No. 1 spot on the World Albums chart.
“Poet | Artist” features eleven songs in total including “Shinin’” and “Before Our Spring.” All profits from album sales will be given to Jonghyun’s mother and will be the foundation for the establishment of an organization to help those who are living in difficult circumstances.
