According to YouTube on June 17, the music video of Big Bang's new song 'Monster' got 10.4 million views. After their songs 'Blue,’ 'Fantastic Baby,’ and 'Bad Boy,’ it's already their 4th time. Of the Korean songs released within this year, total of 5 songs has reached over 10 million views, 4 of them being Big Bang's songs and the other TaeTiSeo's 'Twinkle.’
With their new song 'Monster', Big Bang has already dominated all music charts. They have been rank 1 in the music charts MelOn, Mnet, Bugs, Soribada, and their other songs 'Still Alive,’ 'Round and Round,’ 'Feeling,’ and 'Ego' have also been in the top of the music charts.
They've also been selling unbelievable amounts of albums. According to Hanteo Chart, Big Bang sold 15,000 copies within one day, making a record. The group is expected to surpass 500,000 sales mark with ‘Alive’ and special edition ‘Still Alive’ just in the first half of this year.
What's most interesting is that Big Bang has not been having any promotion or activities with this album at all since its release. Big Bang members are currently busy due to their Japan tour, so they have not been able to meet their fans with their new album.
