Just want to point out that any groups I mention here are just for comparison sake to gauge the popularity on Melon platform.
So I was curious to see how well Day6 album is actually doing on Melon. I don't know how to find the actual streams but I can find the Melon likes for them
So yeah I was thinking eh that actually seem not bad. Zombie with 80k is actually pretty good I mean not god tier but pretty good. And their B-sides are all within the 20k - 30k range
So I was wondering how those numbers compare to other JYPE groups so first group I went to find was Twice, and found out that Day6 numbers are actually higher? EWO had lower numbers but that may be attributed to the reason the album was released at a later date. Like in general even Day6 B-sides are x2 the B-sides of Twice
I was curious about other JYPE groups so why not check out ITZY too. Not Shy had lower numbers so I'ma use IT'z ME for comparison, and same the B-sides are higher. Title track wise Wannabe is higher but kinda expected it was pretty big.
I thought maybe try look at other BGs and see how they compare. Obviously not going for BTS because there's no comparison. So I tried SVT and yeap their numbers are higher for their B-sides, whereas title track Left & Right is almost the same as Zombie
So just to clarify I'm not trying to bring down any groups I'm just thinking how Day6 in terms of popularity vs other groups.
Physical sales wise, they aren't actually doing fantastic not even selling 100k, but somehow when we look at Melon likes (this is not the most accurate measure I know but just for comparison) the numbers seem not bad? Maybe I've been underestimating them or something.
Or is it that Day6 albums, like entire albums not just title tracks, and generally pretty well received by the GP? I suppose maybe MyDays aren't as dedicated to buy a lot of albums, but then our fandom is big enough for them to actually go on 2 World Tours.
Just a random thought that come to my mind. I do hope that they can get even more recognition this year, that is if all the members are well rested especially mentally to make a comeback together.
