Wanna One’s latest tops the charts

Mar 07,2018
Project boy band Wanna One took the lead in seven music streaming charts with its latest song, “I.P.U.,” on Tuesday.

Wanna One’s “I.P.U.,” released at 6 p.m. Monday, was ranked No. 1 on Melon, Genie, Bugs Music, Mnet, Soribada and Naver Music as of 8 a.m. Tuesday. iKON’s “Love Scenario,” which reigned over most charts for more than a month, stood at second place or lower on most charts.

“I.P.U.” was pre-released from Wanna One’s second EP album, “0+1=1 (I Promise You),” which will drop on March 19. Monday’s pre-release was planned to coincide with the 333rd day since the group made its first public appearance.

The new album is headed towards a smash hit status, with pre-orders having reached 700,000 as of Friday.

The band dropped its first album, “1X1=1 (To Be One),” in August in one of the biggest debuts of any K-pop act.
