Circle Chart (formerly known as Gaon Chart) has revealed its chart rankings for the week of January 22 to 28!
The latest album chart was dominated entirely by new releases. Debuting in No. 1 and No. 2 was TXT’s latest album “The Name Chapter: TEMPTATION.” Although the album was only released on January 27, its end-of-week sales total was an impressive 1,861,109 copies!
In third place was SM Entertainment’s agency-wide winter album “SMCU PALACE (Nemo),” followed by Super Junior’s Yesung’s first studio album “Sensory Flows” in No. 4. Entering the chart at No. 5 was Lee Seung Yoon’s new release “Shelter of Dreams.”
Similar to the album chart, this week’s download chart was mostly full of new entries. On top was Kim Ho Joong and Song Ga In’s new collaboration track “With you,” followed by Lee Seung Yoon’s “Shelter of Dreams” debuting in No. 2.
TXT’s latest title track “Sugar Rush Ride” debuted at No. 3 and last week’s No. 1 “VIBE” by BIGBANG’s Taeyang featuring BTS’s Jimin came in at No. 4. Rounding out this week’s top five was Kim Ho Joong’s “Meet you among them.”
Digital Chart + Streaming Chart
For the last week of January, Circle’s digital and streaming charts were identical!
NewJeans swept the top spots with “Ditto” and “OMG” maintaining their positions at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. The group continued their domination with “Hype Boy” regaining its No. 3 position on both charts.
Younha’s viral hit “Event Horizon” ranked in No. 4 while “ANTIFRAGILE” by LE SSERAFIM came in fifth.
Global K-Pop Chart
For the seventh consecutive week, NewJeans snagged the top spot on more than one Circle weekly chart. This week, the group earned a triple crown with their success on the digital, streaming, and global K-pop chart!
Keeping in line with the other rankings, NewJeans dominated the top two positions on the global K-pop chart with “Ditto” and “OMG.” They also maintained a third entry on this chart with “Hype Boy” staying strong at No. 4.
Climbing 12 spots was TWICE’s new pre-release English single “MOONLIGHT SUNRISE,” which landed in No. 3 this week. Closing out the top five was Taeyang and Jimin’s “VIBE.”
The social chart saw little change this week with BLACKPINK maintaining their top position. NewJeans stayed strong at No. 2, followed by BTS and Choi Yu Ree. The one change on this week’s chart was TWICE climbing three ranks to enter the top five.
Congratulations to all the artists!
