Who can pacify the storm that is BIGBANG? The answer: no one but BIGBANG themselves or so it seems! Many top K-pop groups reach 1st place in several countries on iTunes charts, but rarely do do they take over worldwide like BIGBANG!
YG Entertainment informed media outlets, "BIGBANG's new single which was unveiled at midnight on July 1 has taken over iTunes Singles Chart in 16 countries including Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Norway, Peru, the Philippines, Singapore, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, and more. Even in the the U.S. they ranked #4, and #22 in the U.K."
However, after making this announcement, BIGBANG went on to grab #1 in 3 more countries, so that they've now topped the iTunes Singles Chart of 19 countries.
This list includes Brunei, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Finland, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, Panama, Peru, the Philippines, Singapore, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam! They've also now hit #3 in the U.S. and #17 in the U.K.
