Black Pink is only the third foreign artist to top Oricon's Weekly Album chart after making their debut. The other two to have accomplished this are 2NE1 and Russian music duo t.A.T.u.
Previously, Black Pink topped Oricon's 'Daily Album' chart for two consecutive days and also topped the Tower Records chart, which is the largest music retail outlet in Japan.
