K-Pop band X1 have quantum leapt their way to a new record with their debut album as they racked up a huge amount of sales during their first week.
Theyve smashed it.
The band, which consists of members Kang Min Hee, Cha Jun Jo, Nam Do Hyon, Lee Han Gyul, Son Dong Pyo, Cho Seung Youn, Song Hyeong Jun, Han Seung Woo, Kim Woo Seok and Kim Yo Han, released their album Quantum Leap on 27 August.
To make things all the more impressive, the band smashed the record on the fourth day after the album was released, with sales of more than 416,000 as of 30 August.
Previously, the record was held by Wanna One, with their album 1X1=1 (TO BE ONE), which was released back in 2017.
The 11-member group are definitely the new kids on the block after being decided by public vote in the finale of Produce X 101 back in June.

The guys recently voted for Seungwoo to become their leader, with all members except for the man himself choosing the Plan A Entertainment trainee.
Kim Yo Han said on V Live that he has always been our leader, while Son Dong Pyo added: I hope he will become a father to the 10 of us. But Im the youngest son that he cherishes the most.
