8 June – The first half of the year is coming to a close, and the members of Big Bang are celebrating the occasion with a notch on U.S. iTunes' Top 30 chart, a feat yet to be achieved by other Korean stars.
As reported on Dkpopnews, on 5 June, YG Entertainment revealed that Big Bang's newest release, "Still Alive," made it into the Top 30 albums list on the U.S. iTunes chart, which is a first for a Korean band.
The album in question is a repackaged release that was released on 3 June as a tribute to Big Bang's fans that have made their 5th mini album "Alive" released back in February a huge success.
It contains the same songs as "Alive", but with the addition of an extended version of the title track "Still Alive", the Korean versions of "Feeling" and "Ego," and new song "Bingle Bingle".
The song "Feeling" was produced by band members G-Dragon and TOP with the help of German DJ Boys Noize.
Meanwhile, the album also reached number four on the Canadian iTunes chart.
