    • @ Sayw

      YB’s KOREAN album made it to number 83 on the american charts. I think that’s quiet an accomplishment for a korean album.

    • not sure i think is r&b charts only i think his not the first epick is number 1 in hip hop chart.

    • Do you mean Korean song or Korean artist? If the latter, then no.

    • 1st Korean in the R&B Charts.
      but for overall EPIK HIGH is the first Korean…

  23. wow that is amazing! i think taeyang is one of the more popular out of big bang internationally due to his style of music (and of course his crazy sexiness. we international fans do appreciate his hot bod ;] ). i hope his album continues to do well.

  24. was he only on #4 for a couple of minutes? Howcome i dont see him…

  25. […] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Eileen Teo, mai彡rss and others. mai彡rss said: K Bites: TaeYang’s new album ‘Solar’ up #4 on American iTunes R&B chart http://bit.ly/aQfcmA […]

  26. outside of Korea, TY’s type of music is THE BEST. Im waiting what will an eng version to all his songs will do🙂

    • yeah i hope he release full version of solar is already english.

      • but i hope its not in engrish
        LOL
        how did jyp do it, the mans gotta share his secrets…particularly with rain LOLx2

      • taeyang’s english is sooooooo much better than wg’s or rain’s— and he did it without having to learn english so hard like wg did. he raps since he was young and of course it includes rapping and singing in english– YG family’s artist are the best in singing English— and not engrish! hehe

      • @jybz i think it’s not necessary to compare taeyang english with rain n wg.. Ofcourse they have to learn english so hard.. They learn english not only to be able to sing songs in english but also so they can communicate well with english..

        Btw congratz Taeyang.. i’m really glad he doing well outside Korea.. Haters can shut up now..

      • lol yeah I loved when WG did english (didnt get to see them though :[ )
        So if my fave YG comp. makes an english album I would die!

  27. wow not bad Taeayng good job international fans is only a dollar right so its cheap.

      • is it oh I Need A Girl is the only song that buy not the whole album men im cheap sorry Taeyang.

      • @ 5=2
