The South Korean boy group TOMORROW X TOGETHER (TXT) has achieved a significant feat in the Japanese music market. Their third full-length album, “The Chaos Chapter: FREEZE,” released on October 23, has topped the Oricon “Weekly Combined Album” chart for the week of October 9-15. The album earned a total of 226,931 points, surpassing their previous release, “The Chaos Chapter: TEMPTATION,” by a significant margin. TXT’s success in this chart reflects their growing popularity in Japan and positions them as the only artist to have three albums topping the “Weekly Combined Album” chart this year.
The Oricon “Weekly Combined Album” chart combines CD sales, digital downloads, and streaming figures to determine an album’s ranking. TXT’s “The Chaos Chapter: FREEZE” taking the top spot marks their ninth album to reach the summit of this chart. The title track of the album, “Chasing That Feeling,” also gained massive popularity, with its music video surpassing 50 million views on YouTube within a short period. TXT’s consistent success in Japan underscores their strong presence in the global music industry and their ability to connect with audiences beyond South Korea.
