110610 Shôjo Jidai Debuts at #3 on United World Chart

SNSD‘s first Japanese album, Girls’ Generation, debuts at #3 on the weekly album chart of United World Chart. The United World Chart is a worldwide chart issued every week by Media Traffic, using both sales (digital and physical) and airplay to determine the most popular albums and singles worldwide.

The girls’ first Japanese album debuts as the third top-selling album in week 24 of 2011, behind Lady Gaga‘s Born This Way andAdele‘s 21.

Quoting from the United World Chart’s official site;

As expected, the sales of Lady GaGa’s new effort ‘Born This Way’ plunge into the deep, a massive 75% compared to the previous week to 487.000 copies. The total sales are at 2,41 million so far. It is doubtful if she can a third week at the summit of the global album chart. Adele’s ’21′ sits tight at the second place, with a little 1,5% sales increase to 282.000 copies, a total of 6,48 million after 19 weeks on the tally. Highest debut of the week is Shôjo Jidai, a nine-member girl group from Seoul, South Korea, with their first Japanese album release, ‘Girls’ Generation’. The set sold 232.000 units in its initial week in Japan. In South Korea the album was already released in 2007. Indierock-act Death Cab For Cutie arrives behind at no.4 with ‘Codes & Keys’ and 164.000 sales. Ex Pearl Jam leader Eddie Vedder storms at no.5 with his solo-set ‘Ukulele Songs’ (99.000 sales). Two other Japanese acts bow in the top 10, UverWorld’s ‘Life 6 Sense’ at no.6 with 95.000 sales and Sendaime J Soul Brothers’ self-titled album at no.7 with 94.000 sales. German casting-star Pietro Lombardi comes in at no.9 with his debut album ‘Jackpot’ (66.000 sales). Outside the top 10 debuting US rock-act My Morning Jacket with ‘Circuital’ at no.11 (58.000), Flogging Molly’s ‘Speed Of Darkness’ at no.21 (33.000), Kiyoshi Hikawa’s ‘Enka Meikyoku Collection 14′ at no.22 (33.000), Black Stone Cherry’s ‘Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea’ at no.24 (32.000), Journey’s ‘Ecl1ps3′ at no.28 (30.000), Mao Abe’s ‘Su.’ at no.34 (24.000), Status Quo’s ‘Quid Pro Quo’ at no.36 (24.000) and Aki Toyosaki’s ‘Love Your Life, Love My Life’ at no.38 (22.000).

Uhh… It seems like they’re mistaking the 1st Japanese Album Girls’ Generation (2011) as a remake / reissue of the 1st Korean AlbumGirls’ Generation (2007). But anyway, it’s pretty awesome to see the girls makes it to the worldwide album chart, isn’t it?
Previously this year, label-mate TVXQ or DBSK also charted in the United World Chart at #4 with their comeback album,Keep Your Head Down.
