The first solo album from Jungkook of BTS sold more than 2.43 million copies in the first week and set a new record for a K-pop solo artist, according to a local tally on Friday.

EP “Golden” was unveiled on Nov. 3 and sold 1 million units in three hours and two in five hours. The album logged 2.14 million in sales on the day of release, another record for a K-pop solo act.

It headed straight to the top of Oricon’s weekly combined album ranking after debuting at the top of its weekly and daily album rankings. He is the second male solo musician to notch the top spot on the weekly chart, only after bandmate Jimin.

Meanwhile, the main track from the album, “Standing Next To You,” claimed the No. 1 spot on Spotify’s daily top songs global chart, taking over from his own single, “Seven (feat. Latto).” He is the first K-pop musician to place three songs at the top of the chart.
