SEVENTEEN Sets New Record with Compilation Album "17 is Right Here"

Seventeen's latest album, "17 is Right Here," achieved an extraordinary milestone by selling over 2.2 million copies on its debut day, securing its position as the best-selling K-pop compilation album at launch.

Released on April 29,  the album marks a pivotal moment for the boy band as it not only serves as a comprehensive compilation of their nine-year musical journey but also signals the beginning of a new era. Boasting a collection of 33 tracks, including four fresh compositions, 20 Korean lead tracks, 8 Korean renditions of their Japanese hits, and the instrumental version of "Adore U," the album offers fans a rich tapestry of Seventeen's artistic evolution.

The album's reception transcended borders, with it claiming the top spot on iTunes' Top Album chart in 17 regions globally and securing the second position on the Worldwide Album chart. The lead single, "Maestro," achieved remarkable success by topping iTunes' Worldwide Song chart and dominating Top Song charts in 32 regions worldwide.

Seventeen further solidified their status as a global phenomenon with their recent "Seventeen Tour 'Follow Again' in Seoul" encore concert at the Seoul World Cup Stadium, which drew a massive crowd of 70,000 over two unforgettable days. The band is poised to continue their tour, with upcoming performances scheduled at the Osaka Yanmar Stadium Nagai and Japan's largest performance venue, the Nissan Stadium in Kanagawa.

Excitingly, Seventeen is set to grace renowned festivals such as the Glastonbury Festival in June and Chicago's Lollapalooza in September. Additionally, fans can anticipate the release of a new album— their second this year— accompanied by another tour in the fall, marking their return to the United States after a two-year hiatus. With each endeavor, Seventeen continues to captivate audiences worldwide, cementing their status as one of K-pop's most influential acts.
