However, as of 2:40 a.m. KST of June 9, G-Dragon’s “Kwon Ji Yong” has already spread across the globe. As reported by Soompi, G-Dragon’s latest album has ranked No. 1 on international iTunes chart across 37 countries!

G-Dragon’s “Kwon Ji Yong” also topped the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ album charts in the European countries of Belarus, Turkey, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Ukraine, Spain, and Sweden.
G-Dragon’s latest album also took the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ album charts in the United States and in Mexico. “Kwon Ji Yong” also managed to top in Canada as well.
On the day of “Kwon Ji Yong’s” release, however, G-Dragon made a last-minute change with the album’s title track. Instead of “BULLSH*T”, the album’s title track is now “Untitled, 2014”.
According to Koreaboo, fans believe that this move is to avoid any repercussions that would be attracted because of the previous title track’s title. However, some fans believe that this is because of the recent controversy of G-Dragon’s co-BIGBANG member T.O.P.
Congratulations, G-Dragon! Meanwhile, watch the MV for the idol’s latest track “Untitled, 2014” down below.
