Plus, a look at the success of the winning group from the "Produce" series.
IZ*ONE, the latest group created from the super-popular Produce singing competition series, is off to a strong start on the Billboard charts.
The Korean-American outfit sees their debut EP and their single chart within the top 10 of Billboard's world charts. The group's COLOR*IZEP debuts at No. 9 on World Albums, while lead single "La Vie en Rose" begins at No. 6 on the World Digital Song Sales chart. Among its most remarkable stats this week, "La Vie en Rose" sold 1,000 downloads in the week ending Nov. 1, according to Nielsen Music, and is this week's third-biggest-selling K-pop song.
Also notable: Very few female K-pop acts are able to double up on both world-genre charts with their debut releases. IZ*ONE is now just the eighth girl group to manage the feat and the third this year. See below for the full breakdown.
