The final week of reporting is here for the Billboard charts is here, and making the final big splash of 2016 is none other than BIGBANG!
For the week of December 31, BIGBANG have managed to earn their second entry on the Billboard 200 with the release of their long-awaited third album "MADE", which managed to come in at a career-best No.172 on the chart.
BIGBANG's big debut on the Billboard 200 has also translated to success on the Billboard World Albums Chart, with "MADE" managing to debut at No.1 for the week of December 31. BIGBANG weren't the only K-pop act to have a strong debut this week as Jessica Jung also had an impressive start on the World Albums chart with her new album "Wonderland", which managed to come in at No.7 despite having little to no promotional activity on music shows.
Also notably, BTS continue to impress on the chart, with "WINGS" managing to hold onto the No.8 spot despite the album having been released 10 over two months ago.
A huge congrats to BIGBANG, and another huge congrats to BTS and Jessica Jung for their own Billboard success!
