Golden Child is flying high with their recent release ‘Game Changer’. It is their second studio album which was released on August 2.

Not only that Golden Child has also made a mark on Billboard. They got their first entry on the international platform with the title track ‘Ra Pam Pam’.

Golden Child charts high on Billboard
Along with ranking at #2 on their very first entry on Billboard, Golden Child is also #37 on the Digital Song Sales Chart which is different from the World Digital Sales Song Chart. This is also a reason to celebrate as they’re the third K-pop boy group to enter this particular chart. Last week they were also #5 on Next Big Sound Chart. The album has also crossed more than 135k sales which makes it their best selling album. They also came in #2 on Gaon’s Weekly Album Chart and #1 on Genie.
Goldennness took it upon themselves to alert the boys and let them know of their achievements. Their response was adorable as they took to social media to show their gratitude. Donghyun thanked fans while Jibeom was confused as to what was going on. Seungmin couldn’t believe that they were on Billboard.

As part of the summer album, ‘Ra Pam Pam’ is an energetic moombahton track perfect for the season. Making use of Latin pop sounds and brass instruments, the song has equally unique choreography and a music video that would rival most of the current releases. Fans were also impressed at how the group incorporated climate change with their dystopian take in the music video.

One fan wrote, “Keep breaking their own records.” Another added, “I never thought that in one era, #GoldenChild would be getting a 100k sales cert from Hanteo (though no proof yet) and Number 2 on Billboard World Digital Song Sales Chart. Not to mention that they were in Top 10 for all music shows plus 30M views for the MV~ Slowly but surely!” Fans also brought back the group’s dream of charting on Billboard, “Just wanna bring this back coz it's the boys dream to see their name in billboard chart.”
