Last week, one of the country's biggest record retail chains - Astroplus/Astrovision announced that SHINee's 2nd album "Lucifer" was their #1 album after two days of release in the market! This week, another big record retail chain, Odyssey, released their latest bestselling album chart and guess who's at the #1 spot. You're right, it's SHINee's "Lucifer".
This is FIRST TIME that a SHINee's album became #1 in two major record chains simultaneously. "Lucifer" is also 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).
More than a thousand Shawols rushed to Astroplus The Block SM North Edsa, Odyssey SM Megamall and Odyssey Mall of Asia last Saturday (September 18th) in order to attend "Electrifying Hearts : SHINee Lucifer Album Launch Event" organized by Universal Records and SHINee World Philippines, in cooperation with MYX, Astroplus and Odyssey, and get their advance copies of SHINee's album "Lucifer" Version A & B plus its exclusive Freebies. The main activity of the album launch event during that day was the "Side by Side with SHINee Selca Contest" wherein Shawols took photo of themselves lying on the floor on top of SHINee tarpaulin. Ten (10) winners will get SHINee giant tarpaulins. SHINee "Lucifer" is now released Nationwide. Free SHINee poster will be given in selected record stores!
Congratulations Shawols for this amazing achievement! Universal Records is gearing up for the release of SHINee's 2nd Repackage Album featuring the new single "Hello". Watch out for further announcements!
