GOT7’s new album “Present: You” topped music chart service Gaon’s monthly albums chart, selling over 300,000 copies.

The seven-piece boy band’s third studio album came out on top of Gaon’s September albums chart after topping the weekly chart for two weeks in a row in the same month, far surpassing the likes of NCT Dream and SHINee.

The news comes after the group dominated the Hanteo album sales chart in September, continuing its winning streak.

Last week, the group also topped the singles chart on weekly music program “M Countdown” for the second week after reaching the peak of the singles chart on “Show! Music Core,” delivering a strong performance on both singles and albums charts.

GOT7’s growing popularity is not confined to Korea. The album topped iTunes charts in 26 countries soon after its release Sept. 11.

Notably, the lead track for “Present: You,” titled “Lullaby,” is sung in four languages -- Korean, Chinese, English and Spanish -- in an effort to reach out to a wider audience.
