BLACKPINK’s Lisa Breaks 1st-Week Album Sales Record Among Female Artists + Becomes 1st Solo Female Half-Million Seller
On top of that, Lisa recorded 330,129 initial albums sold on the day of release, which saw a rise of 88,356 copies on the fourth day, reaching a day 4 total of over 420,000 albums. On the last day of the week (which was from September 10 to 16), nearly 250,000 albums were sold for a grand first-week total of 736,221.
This makes Lisa the first female solo artist to became a half-million seller for first-week album sales, for which Hanteo Chart announced they will “issue a Gold Certificate that indicates Initial Chodong [first week of release] sales amount of more than 500,000 copies.”
Lisa’s total breaks the record for first-week album sales record among all female artists and also marks the 15th highest first-week album sales in Hanteo history. Among female artists, the top three spots are now held by Lisa, BLACKPINK, and Rosé, demonstrating the group’s popularity.
Congratulations to Lisa on this impressive achievement!
