To help SHINee chart on Billboard, the most important thing you can do is immediately buy the songs on iTunes on the first day of release – April 26th.
Once you have done that, be sure to share SHINee’s “HARD” YouTube MV on social media, encouraging people to also buy the song/album, and stream the album on Apple Music, Spotify, & other official streaming services. We have only 4 days to get on Billboard charts for the first week before data collecting closes Thursday at midnight EST. SHINee’s highest iTunes chart position to date (as a group) is “Don’t Call Me” which charted at #1 on the main US iTunes album chart. Their highest Billboard position is for “The Story of Light Ep. 1” with #2 on Heatseekers (just under Billboard 200). Shawols FIGHTING!
