GOT7's Bambam tops iTunes with second solo album 'B' while spoiling group reunion
The Thai-born K-pop idol got an all-kill on Thailand's iTunes charts, while the album topped iTunes in 30 countries within 24 hours of its release
While we wait for GOT7’s reunion which is closer than ever, Ahgases (GOT7’s fandom) have helped chart Bambam’s ‘B’ in celebration of its release. The Thai-born idol was the first GOT7 member to drop a solo first album in June 2021 after the K-pop group left their company JYPE. Following its smashing success, he is back in seven months with his second mini-album ‘B’ which he released on January 18, 2022.
Bambam ended the year with a bang as he dropped the pre-release ‘Who Are You’ featuring Red Velvet’s Seulgi which had fans dubbing it the ‘collaboration of the year’. He also hinted at a partnership with Pink Sweat$ and later revealed that the American R&B singer had indeed co-written the title track ‘Slow Mo’ with him. And to hype it up, GOT7 fans helped the album top charts like iTunes.
‘B’ tops iTunes and gets all-kill in Thailand
The album ‘B’ topped iTunes in 30 countries like France, Brazil, and Malaysia within 24 hours of its release. It especially received an all-kill on Thailand iTunes proving the GOT7 star’s title ‘Thailand’s Prince’. ‘B’ topped the All-Genres, K-pop, and Pop chart of iTunes Thailand. Additionally, all six of the album tracks entered the top 6 of Thai iTunes with ‘Slow Mo’ at #1. ‘B’ is also the first K-pop album by a soloist in 2022 to reach #1 on Worldwide iTunes and European iTunes. Meanwhile, ‘Slow Mo’ is #1 on iTunes in 18 countries like Fiji, Mongolia, and Argentina. Bambam’s title track also topped South Korea’s Genie and charted on Bugs and MelOn.
Bambam confirms GOT7 comeback
And while he had his showcase for ‘B’, Bambam teased at GOT7’s reunion. The group has been inactive since January 2021 with the members focusing on their individual careers. He and JayB had already hinted at a GOT7 comeback during their Instagram Live session with all of the members on January 16. On Bambam’s showcase on January 18, he shared that the members are also talking about coming back and have made songs with GOT7 in mind. He then ended up confirming that GOT7 would be making a comeback soon.
