NCT 127 - Limitless (EP) Chart Rankings @ 1:00 - 1:30 AM KST

“Limitless” charted higher than all the other units’ title songs on Melon, their whole album debuting in the top 100 in the Melon Real-Time Chart in the first hour.  Not only that, but the whole album also charted at #1 on Tower Records’ Daily Chart in Japan.   I’m beyond proud of them.  So very proud.  This is such a beautiful gift to start the new year off right. Thank you boys for working hard, for practicing day and night, for singing your hearts out, for always making us feel special.

Thriller was released on 30 November 1982, and quickly became the best-selling album of all time.

It was the 6th solo studio album by the 24-year-old Michael Jackson, and record executives were worried that the album’s sales would be a disappointment compared to Jackson’s previous release, Off the Wall, especially given the lead single, “The Girl Is Mine,” which had been released on 18 October, and while it sold well, did not give any indication of the massive success the album would have.

Thriller had 7 of its 9 songs released as singles (all reached the Top Ten), and the album has sold more than 46 million copies worldwide (the next best-selling album is AC/DC’s Back in Black with 26 million copies sold). It was the best-selling album in the US in both 1983 and 1984, and continues to sell more than 100,000 copies each year.

English singer and actress Dame Vera Lynn celebrates her 100th birthday on March 20, 2017. To mark the occasion, she has released a new album on March 17, 2017, making her the oldest person to release a new album.

Dame Vera is best known for her 1939 hit song We’ll Meet Again. In 2009, at age 92, she became the oldest living artist to top the UK Albums Chart.

On this day in music history: March 26, 1977 - “Rich Girl” by Daryl Hall & John Oates hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks, also peaking at #64 on the R&B singles chart on April 9, 1977. Written by Daryl Hall, it is the first chart topping single for the pop/rock duo from Philadelphia, PA. Hall is inspired to write the song after his girlfriend Sara Allen tells him about an ex-boyfriend she dated in college who was the heir to a fast food chain fortune. However he changes the subjects gender when he finishes writing it. Years later, “Son Of Sam” serial killer David Berkowitz reveals in an interview that “Rich Girl” had motivated him to commit some of the murders. Rumors also circulate that the song is about kidnapped heiress Patty Hearst, but is proven to not be so. The revelation that Berkowitz had somehow been influenced by “Rich Girl”, later moves Hall to write the song “Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear Voices)” included on Hall & Oates album “Voices” in 1980. Released as the second single from Hall & Oates’ fifth album “Bigger Than Both Of Us” in January of 1977, “Girl” is an instant smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #81 on January 22, 1977, it climbs to the top of the chart nine weeks later. “Rich Girl” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

The lead single for Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water (which would not be released until almost a year later in January 1970), “The Boxer,” was released on 21 March 1969.

It took almost 100 hours to record the song, due to Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel and producer Roy Haylee experimenting with different techniques in 3 different studios, including recording the drum kit in front of an open elevator shaft, and placing 7 microphones around Fred Carter Jr.’s guitar.

Carter played 5 different guitars on the song, and his audible breathing.

“The Boxer” was Simon & Garfunkel’s first single since “Mrs. Robinson” and it charted in the Top Ten in 9 different countries, peaking at #7 in the US.

The song is frequently interpreted as being about Bob Dylan, although Simon has always claimed it was mostly autobiographical. Dylan recorded the song almost a year later (3 March 1970) for his Self Portrait album, which also included Fred Carter Jr. on guitar.

On this day in music history: December 5, 1970 - “The Tears Of A Clown” by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 3 weeks, also topping the Hot 100 for 2 weeks on December 12, 1970. Written by Stevie Wonder, Henry Cosby and Smokey Robinson, it is the second R&B and lone pop chart topper for the Detroit based R&B vocal group led by singer, songwriter and producer Smokey Robinson. Stevie Wonder and his then producer Hank Cosby write the music for the song in the Fall of 1966, but are not able to come up with suitable lyrics for it. They play it for Smokey at the annual Motown Christmas party that year and ask if he can write some lyrics for it. Upon hearing the instrumental track, the intros’ calliope like sound reminds Robinson of the circus. He’ll begin to write lyrics about Pagliacci The Clown, the central character in the Ruggero Leoncavallo opera, “Pagliacci”. The man in the song compares himself to the famed clown who brought joy to many, but himself is sad and lonely because he doesn’t have a woman who loves him. The Miracles record their vocals in early 1967 and the song is first released as a track on the album “Make It Happen”, which goes largely unnoticed by the public. It is first released in the UK as a single in September 1970 after a successful re-release of “The Tracks Of My Tears”. “Clown” hits number one in the UK selling over 900,000 copies, leading to its US release. “The Tears Of A Clown” sells over a million copies in the US, and its popularity extends Robinsons’ stay in The Miracles, who prior to the songs’ release had planned to leave the group in order to spend more time at home with his wife and family before launching his own solo career. The song is covered numerous times over the years with versions by Petula Clark, The (English) Beat, Nnenna Freelon, Phil Collins, Eumir Deodato, Marc Cohn, and Boyzone. “The Tears Of A Clown” is inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 2002.

On this day in music history: March 22, 1980 - “Another Brick In The Wall Pt.II” by Pink Floyd hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 weeks. Written by Roger Waters, it is the biggest hit single and lone chart topper for the British progressive rock band from Cambridge, UK. Waters writes the song as a rebuke against the rigid and often oppressive environment he encountered in school as a child. For the songs chorus, the band has engineer James Guthrie record a group of kids, mostly boys ranging in age from ten to fifteen years old from North London to sing on the track. Guthrie fills an entire 24 track tape with stereo pairs of tracks of the kids singing it in various ways. Issued as the first single from bands landmark concept album “The Wall”, it quickly becomes a breakout smash on top 40 radio, a rare occurrence for Pink Floyd, who had never relied on singles to sell large quantities of albums. Entering the Hot 100 at #77 on January 19, 1980, it climbs to the top of the chart nine weeks later. First edition pressings of the 45 come packaged in a picture sleeve with custom label artwork designed by Gerald Scarfe, though reverts to a standard Columbia label (in the US) or Harvest label (in the UK and other foreign territories) with generic company sleeves when the initial pressing sells out. The chart topping success of the single helps propel “The Wall” to sales of 23x Platinum (11.5 million double album sets), making it one of the best selling albums of all time. “Another Brick In The Wall Pt. II” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

Beyoncé Knowles: 20 times Grammy Award winner, the second most honored female artist by the Grammys and the most nominated woman in Grammy Award history with 52 nominations. She has sold over 100 million records as a solo artist, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time. RIAA recognized her as the Top Certified Artist of the 2000s decade. As of December 2015, Beyoncé has sold 16 million albums and over 47 million digital songs in the United States as a solo artist. Critics hail her as one of the best entertainers in contemporary popular music. Forbes magazine listed her as the most powerful female musician of 2015.

Taylor Swift: 10 time Grammy Award winner, at 20 she became the youngest person ever to win Album of the Year at the Grammys with Fearless, a country album and at 26 she became the only female solo act in history to receive that award twice with 1989, a pop album. She has sold 27.67 million albums (March 2015) in the United States, making her the seventh-largest-selling female artist. She has written every single song of every album she has ever released. She’s the only artist in history to have three consecutive albums sold more than 1 million copies in its first week. Swift owns the most awarded country album in music history (Fearless) and the most awarded pop album in music history (1989). This year, BMI will present Taylor Swift with an award bearing her name in recognition of her incomparable creative and artistic talent and influence on music lovers throughout the world. (This is only the second time in BMI’s 76-year history that the company has presented an award in someone’s name. The first was to Michael Jackson in 1990).

Adele: Academy Award Winner for best original song in a motion picture with Skyfall (2013) and 10 time Grammy Award Winner. She and Beyoncé hold the record of most Grammys won by a female artist in one night with six each. With 21 non-consecutive weeks at number 1 in the US, Adele broke the record for the longest number-1 album by a woman in Billboard history, beating the record formerly held by Whitney Houston’s soundtrack The Bodyguard.21 spent its 23rd week at number one in March 2012, making it the longest-running album at number one since 1985 and it became the fourth best-selling album of the past 10 years in the United States. 25 is the first album to sell more than 3 million copies in a week in Nielsen history, and only the second to surpass 2 million sold in a single frame. Adele is easily the best voice in music industry nowadays.

Beyoncé, Taylor, Adele, Gaga, Rihanna… You know one thing they all have in common? They make art maintaining true to themselves, they are unique in what they do, and that’s the key to their success. All these women can be successful at the same time in the same universe, crazy huh? Stop pitting women against each other.
