Bobby’s ‘Love and Fall’ tops 22 iTunes album charts


SEOUL, Sept. 15 (Yonhap) — IKON member Bobby’s solo record “Love and Fall” has topped 22 Apple iTunes album charts, his agency said Friday.

The album released Thursday stood at No. 1 on a total of 22 iTunes album charts, including in Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Finland and Chile, according to YG Entertainment. Bobby’s first full-length album also ranked sixth on the U.S. album chart.

The Korean-American singer-rapper, whose real name is Kim Ji-won, first gained the spotlight as a contestant in the 2013 TV audition show “WIN: Who is Next,” competing against other trainees for the chance to debut as a group. Two years later, he debuted through iKON under YG.

IKON is known for its scrappy, raucous attitude and sound. But Bobby has revealed a more personal and intimate side of himself in the new record. The singer is promoting the self-produced record with “Runaway,” an upbeat song about teenage deviation, and “I Love You” as the album’s double title tracks.
