Billboard: G-Dragon Topping Charts Again & Coming to the U.S.A this Summer

G-Dragon Tops World Albums Chart for 2nd Week to Nearly Double Total U.S. Sales

Billboard: G-Dragon Topping Charts Again & Coming to the U.S.A this Summer
The achievement makes him the first solo K-pop act to have an album rule the chart for multiple weeks.
While G-Dragon’s debut record sales last week were already something to gawk at — achieving his best U.S. sales week in just one day — the BIG BANG icon continues to set more impressive chart feats with his recently released EP.
For the second week in a row, G-Dragon’s Kwon Ji Yong rules Billboard’s World Albums chart with an additional 3,000 copies sold for the week ending June 15, according to Nielsen Music. That pushes the EP’s cumulative total for the two weeks to just over 7,000 copies. The achievement makes him the first solo K-pop artist and second K-pop act overall to have an album spend multiple weeks at No. 1 on the chart.
So far, only BTS has logged multiple weeks atop World Albums among K-pop acts. The boy band’s 2015 release The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2 returned to the summit on the chart dated January 16, 2016 and stayed there an additional two weeks. BTS’ Wings album also spent two weeks atop World Albums starting last October. Both BTS and G-Dragon have three No. 1s on World Albums.
Elsewhere on the charts, GD sees more action on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart as lead single “Untitled, 2014” rises to a new peak at No. 4 (up from No. 14 last week) and the track “Bullsh*t” debuts at No. 10.

Must-See K-Pop Acts Performing Stateside This Summer: G-Dragon, Highlight, Twice & More

With the east coast leg of KCON USA 2017 kicking off in New Jersey this Friday, K-pop’s 2017 summer invasion is about to begin. This year has already seen many Korean acts come stateside, but by the end of August, there will be more than another dozen musicians to add to the roster, making the summer of 2017 one of the best that K-pop has ever seen in North America.
There are few K-pop stars as renowned as BIG BANG’s frontman. An icon in his own right, both as a musician and a fashionista, G-Dragon recently made headlines for releasing his latest EP, Kwon Ji Yong, via links distributed on USBs, rather than a more traditional physical album. GD will bring his Act III, M.O.T.T.E world tour to seven cities in the States, before heading to Toronto for one Canadian stop.
