As expected, Leessang has completely taken over the digital charts with their eighth comeback album, ‘Unplugged‘!
According to results revealed by iChart for May 28th, Leessang’s “Someday” topped the weekly charts for Melon, Mnet, Olleh Music, and Bugs, while “My Love” is at the top of real time charts.
A majority of the tracks off of their album have managed to take over the top 10 rankings on most digital charts, demonstrating the duo’s dominance in the digital music market.
There seems to be no competition in sight for the duo, as it’s actually their own songs that are contending for the top spot. The album charts for May are nothing short of complete dominance by Leessang.
Their decision to change up their musical style with each new album release has been well received by the public, especially since they had already stacked up public recognition with frequent exposure through variety shows.
‘Unplugged’ itself took three long years to produce, with instruments being imported in to create the album’s distinctive vintage sound.
The track is different from the rock unplugged sounds of “Someday” and is more in line with Leessang’s hip hop roots. The track features Jo Hyuna of Urban Zakapa.
Leessang’s ‘Unplugged’ is killing the charts in Korea and was released in celebration of their 10-year anniversary since the group was first formed. Through this album, the duo plan to show the true sound of analog music that is hard to find in music these days. You can support them by purchasing the music.
