Latest Comeback Album “Sticker”
NCT 127’s new album ‘Sticker’ was officially launched on September 17 at 1 p.m. KST (9:30 a.m. IST), much to the delight of NCTzens! The album ‘Sticker’ contains 11 songs, including the title tune and the hit b-side song ‘Lemonade.’ According to SM Entertainment, NCT 127’s third full album, ‘Sticker,’ debuted at the top of Hanteo’s daily album list on September 18.
The NCT sub-first unit’s album, ‘Sticker,’ sells more than 300,000 copies on its first day of release. ‘Neo Zone: The Final Round,’ NCT 127’s previous first-day sales record on Hanteo, was only 207,920 copies.
