Minzy’s first EP took the second spot on Billboard’s world albums chart as of Wednesday, marking the former 2NE1 member’s successful transition into a solo artist.

Released April 17, “Minzy Work 01 Uno” made an immediate impact on local and international charts. It took the top spot on the iTunes K-pop top album charts upon its release in several countries, including the US, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

She is set to hold her first fan event Saturday in Yongsan-gu, Seoul.

Minzy debuted in 2009 as a member of now-disbanded 2NE1. She left YG Entertainment last May and signed with her current agency Music Works.
