In the week since Lay’s solo album “Lose Control” has been released, his album has ranked hotly and has broken all sorts of records.
– He’s achieved many new records for a Chinese album
– In the first 24 hours, he achieved a global ranking of 16 in iTunes, and continued to set new records for number of days a Chinese artist was on the charts
– His preorders have surpassed 200,000 copies before a physical album has even been released. This has caused a lack of supplies and the fact that not all preorders will be able to be fulfilled on the first day
– His sales of 50,000 copies on the first day have also broken records for solo artists in Korea
– He broke the record for highest number of sales for a solo album on the first weekend, and had sold more than 125,000 in seven days
– There are still many orders waiting to be fulfilled
“Lose control” was the first time Lay was a producer, and he was in charge of writing the lyrics, composing, and mixing all the songs.
– The Chinese words in his six songs just so happen to form a sentence of, “What do you need when the world loses control because of music? I really, really miss you tonight, let’s relax.”
– This indicates the level of thought that Lay has put forth in his album
– He has continued to hold the top positions for all music charts in China
– He’s also ranked as #29 in American album rankings in iTunes, and #7 in pop rankings
– He holds first in the Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Hong Kong charts
