Last week, Hits Daily Double revealed that ITZY's full album would generate 26,000 units from track sales and streams in the United States in the first week since its release.

According to the Billboard 200 chart for the week ending on Oct. 9, ITZY's "Crazy In Love" entered at No. 11.
This is an outstanding record for the JYP girl group as they climbed 137 spots on the US album chart since they first entered at No. 148 with their mini-album "GUESS WHO," released in April of this year.
Because of this, "Crazy In Love" becomes ITZY's highest-charting album on the US album chart so far.
They are the first fourth-generation girl group to debut within the Top 15 of Billboard 200.
Moreover, ITZY becomes the third K-pop girl group in history to land inside Billboard 200 Top 20 after BLACKPINK and TWICE.
On the list of highest-charting K-pop girl group albums on the US album chart, ITZY's "Crazy in Love" ranked third, following BLACKPINK's "THE ALBUM" (No. 2) and TWICE's "Taste of Love" (No. 6).
What's more, "Crazy in Love" is now the second-highest-charting album by a fourth-generation idol group.
ITZY's full album has surpassed ENHYPEN's "BORDER: CARNIVAL," which debuted at No. 18 on Billboard 200. Hence, it now follows TXT's "The Chaos Chapter: FREEZE," which landed at No. 5.
Congratulations to ITZY on their highest debut on Billboard 200 with "Crazy in Love"!
