With this achievement, TXT becomes the very first fourth-generation group to have three albums charting on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart for five weeks straight.
In addition to this, TXT's first Japanese album has spent five weeks on both the Billboard World Albums and Top Current Album Sales charts as well. It claimed the No. 9 position on the World Albums, while it ranked 43rd on the Top Current Album Sales for the week ending on March 20.
