But it looks like ‘Attacca’ is about to break that record since it was a success even before its release.

So, with the pre-orders alone, the album has already reached the total sales of ‘Your Choice’ which is also at the moment 1.4 million copies. Additionally, ‘Attacca’ has crossed 481k sales on the first day. Even the music video of the title track ‘Rock With You’ has broken Seventeen’s previous record as it is their most-viewed music video in the first 24 hours with over 8.2 million views.
