This achievement also makes aespa the best selling female Kpop artist in history within the first week – an amazing feat never achieved before by a 4th gen group. Previously, this record also belonged to a BLACKPINK member, Lisa, with her solo album “LALISA” boasting a first week sales of 736,221 copies


With such outstanding physical sales, aespa is now on par with top boy groups in terms of physical achievements. As of the moment, the girl group comes in 4th among Kpop groups with the highest first day sales, surpassed only by BTS, SEVENTEEN, and TXT. 


Prior to the release of “Girls”, aespa already became the Kpop girl group with the highest album pre-orders in history, marking a successful comeback 9 months after their first mini album “Savage”, which was released back in October 2021.
