NCT Dream Score Best U.S. Sales Week to Date, Artist 100 Chart Debut


The teenage NCT collective enters new chart territory with their “We Boom” EP.

While NCT Dream may be young, this teenage collective is making some of their biggest moves across multiple charts this week.

NCT Dream's newly released We Boom: The 3rd Mini Album EP debuts at No. 7 on Billboard's World Albums chart this week and No. 6 on Heatseekers Albums chart. The six-song set sold 1,000 copies in the week ending Aug. 2, according to Nielsen Music. This marks the best sales week for an album for NCT Dream to date. 

The band also make their debut on the Artist 100 this week, the chart that ranks the most popular artists each week based across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social-media fan interaction. NCT Dream was able to crack into the chart thanks to the strength of their album sales and social media presence with 79 percent of their Artist 100 points attributed to social media. NCT Dream spend a second week strong at No. 3 on the Social 50 chart as well.

NCT Dream are now just the 14th K-pop act to enter the Artist 100 chart, following in line with their labelmates in NCT 127 (who peaked at No. 6 in June this year) and the overall, larger NCT collective (that has peaked at No. 51 so far).

Over on the World Digital Song Sales chart, NCT Dream's new single "Boom" debuts at No. 6 with 1,000 downloads, according to Nielsen Music. This is the Dream unit's eighth entry on the chart so far and third Top 10 following their debut single "Chewing Gum" (which debuted at No. 2 on the chart) and "Don't Need Your Love" (their HRVY collaboration peaked at No. 4 earlier this year).

For those keeping track of NCT Dream's chart accomplishments, NCT Dream's best-selling album in America is their We Go Up: The 2nd Mini Album (which has sold 5,000 copies, according to Nielsen Music) and their most-downloaded track is debut single "Chewing Gum" (10,000 downloads sold).
