The act’s 11th mini album SEVENTEENTH HEAVEN released in October 2023 came in at No.8, credited for making history as the first K-pop album to sell over 5 million copies during the first week of release. Fueled by these top two best-selling albums in K-pop history, the act closed out 2023 with more than 16 million album sales to their name.

According to IFPI, the Global Album Chart provides the most complete picture of an album’s global performance by determining its worldwide sales through streaming, downloads, and physical formats. The announcement on the Global Album Chart comes 5 days after the Global Artist Chart was revealed earlier on February 22. SEVENTEEN reaffirmed their unrivalled presence as the highest-ranked K-pop artist on the Global Artist Chart, securing the second position overall following Taylor Swift.

Lewis Morisson, the Director of Global Charts & Certifications at IFPI, said, “We are delighted to present this year’s IFPI Global Album Award to SEVENTEEN, following the incredible performance of FML across the world. The global appeal of K-Pop continues to extend and S.COUPS, JEONGHAN, JOSHUA, JUN, HOSHI, WONWOO, WOOZI, DK, MINGYU, THE 8, SEUNGKWAN, VERNON, and DINO continue to push the boundaries with their concepts, performances and talent. FML and SEVENTEENTH HEAVEN were both huge hits across continents and our congratulations go to the group, their team and of course CARATs all over the world!”
