“Perfect Velvet” topped iTunes K-pop album charts in 13 countries and became the first album by a K-pop girl group to take the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s world albums chart.

Last year, the five-piece group, which debuted in 2014, released hits, such as “Rookie,” “Red Flavor” and “Peek-A-Boo.” It was also named the best female group at the Mnet Asian Music Awards and received the digital “bonsang” (main prize) award at the Golden Disc Awards
