Taeyang made his long-awaited solo comeback just a few days ago with his first album in three years, White Night, and it appears that the time away has done little to dent the BIGBANG singer's popularity!

At the time of writing, White Night has managed to hit No.1 on the iTunes album charts in 23 countries, including  France, Mexico, Greece, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Brunei, Cambodia, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, the Dominican Republic, Finland, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Macao, Malaysia, Peru, the Philippines, Thailand, the Bahamas, Turkey, and Vietnam, as well as the No.2 spot in the U.S.

Not only is this an impressive feat, this broke Taeyang's previous record of number of iTunes charts topped.

As for Taeyang's two new title tracks, "Darling" and "Wake Me Up," both have managed to hit No.1 on a number of Korean music charts, with "Darling" at No.1 on the Genie and Olleh Music realtime charts, and "Wake Me Up" at No.1 on the Bugs realtime chart.

A big congrats to Taeyang to what's already been a massively successful solo comeback!
