Monster rookies IVE continue to set new records.
According to Gaon’s Monthly Album Charts update, on May 12, IVE ranked first with their second single album “Love Dive.”
“Love Dive” recorded over 544,000 copies sold in the first month of its release.
This announcement was massive because it marks the first time a girl group ranked first on Gaon’s Monthly Album Charts since 2015. The last time it happened, Girls Generation had topped the chart with their hit track “Lion Heart.” It took it nearly 7 years for another girl group to top the monthly album chart.
Not only that but IVE joins another very exclusive list becoming only the 3rd girl group of all time to debut with an album straight at No. 1 on Gaon’s Monthly Album Chart, they join 2NE1 and Girls’ Generation.
Congratulations to IVE!
