The late Jonghyun was incredibly successful as a solo artist, so it's no surprise that sales for his posthumous album, Poet | Artist, are through the roof.
The album, which is his second full-length release, has already sold over 150,000 copies. This makes it the highest-selling solo album by a SHINee member ever.
Jonghyun's solo albums have all received a major sales boost since his death in December. Base has sold an extra 17,661 copies, while She Is has sold an extra 20,720 copies. His two self-composed Story Op compilations have also been selling well, shifting an extra 24,558 copies and 29,397 copies respectively.
Great art truly lives forever, and Jonghyun is proving that.
