Out of this, traditional album sales made up 31,000 of the score, along with 2,000 streaming equivalent (SEA) units.

ITZY also ranks at number 10 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart.   

Further, ‘CHECKMATE’ has also debuted at number 1 on Billboard’s World Albums chart!

Previously, ITZY also set another new personal record, by recording 472,394 copies of their mini album sold in the first week since release (July 15 to July 21).
