"Lucifer" is SHINee's FIRST #1 album in the Philippines. Their previous release, "2009, Year of Us" only peaked at #2 in December 2009. They are now the 6th SME artist to achieve #1 in the country. Other SME artists who had #1 albums are - Super Junior (6 times), Girls' Generation (3 times) and once each for TVXQ, BoA and f(x).
