The US Billboard explained that Big Bang's "Still Life" recorded 34 million streams and 29,700 sales (downloads) worldwide during this chart counting period (202.04.02 - 2022.04.08).
"Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter" or "Still Life" is a song that implicitly expresses BIGBANG's thoughts and concerns about the past, as well as the present and future.
The beautiful melody, the lyrics with poetic metaphors, and the sincerity-filled narrative in it make us all look back on our youth and gain sympathy from music fans worldwide.
On the first day of its release, on the 5th, "Still Life" topped the worldwide chart by taking the first place in 33 regions on iTunes, and swept the real-time charts of QQ Music and Line Music, the largest music sites in China and Japan.
In Korea, it has been at the top of the major music charts for 8 days.
"Still Life" is BIGBANG's comeback song after about 4 years of inactivity and the group's first music with only 4 members.
