Girls' Generation's Taeyeon's latest album sells over 80,000 copies
Girls' Generation's Taeyeon set a personal record with her latest full-length album INVU. On February 19, 2022, the singer’s much-anticipated album sold around 30,000 copies on its sixth day on Haneto.
The album sold over 84,000 copies on the first day of its release and has maintained its sales, racking up over 30,000 copies on its sixth day. INVU still has one day left before the first week of tracking sales on Haneto ends.
The latest album features 13 songs, including the title track of the same name. It is a synth pop track with a groovy beat and melancholic lyrics. The song expresses one’s feeling after seeing how differently their partner is in comparison to them, who does not give up and loves them despite the hurdles in their relationship.
Soon after its release, INVU topped iTunes charts in 21 countries including Canada, Japan, Sweden, Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Hong Kong. It has also received the status of a Platinum Album, given to albums which surpass 1 million yuan or $157,400 in sales, on China’s digital album sales chart QQ Music.
According to media reports, Taeyeon also plans on uploading a dance performance video of the track INVU on the YouTube channel Studio Choom soon.
