Last week, one of the country's biggest record retail chains - Astroplus/Astrovision announced that 2NE1's "To Anyone" album 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 (dated January 25, 2011) and guess who's at the #1 spot of their International album chart? You're right, it's 2NE1's "To Anyone" album, and not only that, "The First Mini-Album Repackage" is at #2! "To Anyone", by the way, is still the #1 International album in all Astroplus/Astrovision stores for the second week (chart dated January 17 to 23, 2011)!
This is the first time that a 2NE1 album became #1 in two major record retail chains! "To Anyone" is also 2NE1's first #1 album in the Philippines and overall the 15th #1 K-Pop album of Universal Records!
More than a thousand Blackjacks rushed to Astroplus The Block, Astroplus Mall of Asia, Odyssey SM Megamall and Odyssey SM Bacoor on January 15th (Saturday) in order to attend 2NE1 Album Launch Event organized by Universal Records and 2NE1 Philippines, in cooperation with MYX, Astroplus and Odyssey. It was their chance to get advance copies of 2NE1 "To Anyone" and "The First Mini-Album Repackage" CDs plus the exclusive freebies.
When 2NE1 learned about their success in the Philippines, they immediately posted their thank you's to Pinoy Blackjacks. Watch their clip here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUZf2VAumNs
2NE1 "To Anyone" and "The First Mini-Album Repackage" CDs are now released nationwide. Free 2NE1 posters will be given in selected record stores!
Congratulations Blackjacks for this amazing achievement!
