The top 10 albums sold by rookies this year show the power of 'Produce 101'

PRISTIN, Wanna One, Samuel Kim, Weki Meki, MXM, Yong Guk & Si Hyun, JBJ, Jung Se Woon, Rainz
Viewers may not be too happy with the 'Produce 101' series, but there's no argument on how powerful the program is.

Out of all the rookies that debuted this year, the top 10 albums sold are as follows, in order: Wanna One's '1X1=1 (To Be One)' [733,837], JBJ's 'Fantasy' [88,206], MXM's 'Unmix' [59,526], Weki Meki's 'WeMe' [47,072], PRISTIN's 'Hi' [42,299], Jung Se Woon's 'Ever' [41,371], Samuel Kim's '16' [34,386], Yong Guk & Si Hyun's 'the.the.the' [33,550], Rainz' 'Sunshine' [27,528], and PRISTIN's 'Schxxl's Out' [27,276].

All 9 of the groups (since PRISTIN are on there twice) are from 'Produce 101'. JBJ and Rainz are project groups, MXM and Yong Guk & Si Hyun are unit groups, and Samuel Kim and Jung Se Woon are solos, but they are still the most-sold rookies of the year over any other rookies who debuted this year.

With numbers like these, it's hard for trainees and labels to pass up 'Produce 101' because even those who don't win end up with a large fanbase to start.

What do you think about 'Produce 101'?
