With this, NCT 127 broke its own album sales record and became a double-million seller, the agency said.

NCT 127 first became a million-seller after the release of their second studio album “NCT #127: Neo Zone.”

Before “Sticker” was released, it garnered 2.12 million copies in pre-orders as of Sept. 15, according to SM Entertainment.

SM Entertainment cited Spotify Charts, which announced that NCT 127’s “Sticker” placed second on the Top 10 Global Album Debuts for the period Sept. 17 to 19.

NCT 127 earlier topped Hanteo Chart’s weekly album chart with “Sticker” selling 803,640 copies for the period Sept. 13 to 19.

According to Hanteo Chart, “Sticker” recorded first-week album sales of 929,516 copies sold from Sept. 17 to 23.

The total is 672,768 copies more than NCT 127’s last album “NCT #127 Neo Zone: The Final Round,” which had 256,748 copies sold in the first week of release.

On Gaon Chart’s weekly retail album chart, “Sticker” posted sales of 579,502 copies for the period Sept. 12 to 18.

During an online press conference for the album last Sept. 17, NCT 127 discussed their goals for “Sticker.”

“We’re making a comeback after a year and a half, and so we hope this moment and this album becomes a gift to fans. One that makes them look back later on and realize this was one of the best from NCT 127,” said Doyoung.

Taeyong added, “I’d really want people to enjoy this album. We’ve also taken a lot of time and consideration into the performances along with content that we can share with people. So I hope you guys will enjoy it.”
