EXO and KARD made their highly-anticipated comeback/debut last week, and they've already managed to make a huge splash on the Billboard charts!

For the week of August 5, 2017 on the Billboard World Albums Chart, EXO and KARD had a strong debut with their new albums "The War" and "Hola Hola," coming in at No.1 and No.3 respectively. In addition to their strong presence on the album chart, EXO have also managed to land in the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart at No.2 with their latest hit single "Ko Ko Bop."

It wasn't just EXO and KARD who have had a strong week on the charts. G-Dragon continues to hold on strong with his latest solo album "Kwon Ji Yong," which took the No.5 spot, while Red Velvet rounds out the top 10 by coming in at No.10 with their new album "The Red Summer."

Also notable this week is BTS, who remains in the World Albums Chart for a 19th week with "You Never Walk Alone," which came in at No.13, and are still holding onto that No.1 spot on the Billboard Social 50 chart.

A big congrats to EXO, KARD, and all the K-pop artists who have had a super-strong week on the Billboard charts!
