NCT DREAM has achieved an exciting career first on the Billboard 200!

Last week, NCT DREAM’s latest album “ISTJ” made an impressive debut at No. 28 on Billboard’s famous Top 200 Albums chart, marking the group’s highest ranking yet.

(Although NCT DREAM’s “ISTJ” was originally released in Korea and on digital platforms back on July 17, the album had a delayed CD release in the United States—meaning that “ISTJ” was only physically released stateside on August 18, though its songs have been available for download and streaming in the United States since July. As a result, the album’s debut on the U.S. album charts came over a month after its initial release.)

To add to that achievement, “ISTJ” has now become NCT DREAM’s first album ever to spend multiple weeks on the Billboard 200. For the week ending on September 9, “ISTJ” stayed strong at No. 73 in its second week on the chart.

“ISTJ” is only NCT DREAM’s second album ever to enter the Billboard 200, following their 2022 studio album “Glitch Mode” (which made a strong debut at No. 50 last year, even though NCT DREAM—unlike NCT 127 and NCT—did not have a U.S. distributor at the time).

Outside of the Billboard 200, “ISTJ” held onto its spot at No. 4 on Billboard’s World Albums chart, in addition to remaining No. 6 on both the Tastemaker Albums chart and the Top Current Album Sales chart. The album also ranked No. 7 on the Top Album Sales chart this week.

Finally, NCT DREAM charted at No. 33 on Billboard’s Artist 100 this week, marking their fifth overall week on the chart.

Congratulations to NCT DREAM!
