Last week, Aespa released their first mini album, titled ‘Savage,’ which marks the rookie girl group’s first physical album since their debut in November 2020.
Less than a year into their career, aespa already recorded impressive sales figures. The 4-member girl group’s latest comeback with the mini album “Savage” led them to become one of the top girl groups.
Last week, aespa released their first mini album entitled “Savage,” which marks the rookie girl group’s first physical album since their debut in November 2020. The album achieved satisfactory sales in its first week of release.
On October 12, Hanteo Chart announced that the album sold 276,877 copies in its first week of release (October 5-11). This is a very promising start for the girl group who has not yet celebrated their first anniversary.
On the chart released by Hanteo, the mini-album “Savage” sold 147,000 copies in just the first day. Its sales nearly doubled on the 7th day after its release. Considering that aespa is currently still undergoing promotional activities, it is certain that “Savage” sales figures will still increase with online fansigns and other events.
With this achievement, aespa became the girl group with the fourth highest first-week sales in Hanteo’s history. The girl group made by SM Entertainment was only defeated by BLACKPINK (Black Pink), IZ * ONE, and TWICE. The group that previously occupied the 4th position was ITZY.
The mini album “Savage” has also achieved the second highest first week sales of any girl group album released in 2021. It has only surpassed TWICE’s “Taste of Love” so far.
Aespa’s gain through the first week of sales of “Savage” also signifies that they broke the record as the SM girl group with the most sales in the first week. In addition, the music video for “Savage” has garnered 70 million views in 6 1/2 days since its release. Congratulations to aespa!
