ITZY are already soaring to new heights with their upcoming mini-album – even before it was released!
Ahead of the group’s much-anticipated comeback on July 15, JYP Entertainment officially announced that as of July 14, ITZY’s new mini-album “CHECKMATE” had totaled an impressive total of 720,665 stock pre-orders.
The number not only marks ITZY’s highest number of stock pre-orders for an album to date, but it also makes “CHECKMATE” the only fourth girl group album in history to exceed 700,000 stock pre-orders. The only other girl group albums to have achieved that feat to date are aespa’s “Girls”, BLACKPINK’s “THE ALBUM” and TWICE’s “Formula of Love: O + T =.”
The number of stock pre-orders is the amount of album stock produced before an album is released. This number is the estimated demand calculated based on various factors, including how many albums were pre-ordered by fans.
ITZY returns with “CHECKMATE” and its title track “SNEAKERS” on July 15 at 13.00 KST. Check out their schedule for their first week of comeback campaigns here!
