Korean group SHINee has been listed on a number of Apple iTunes’ international music charts with their new mini-album “Sherlock.”

On the week of their comeback to the local music scene, SHINee’s fourth mini-album “Sherlock” has stormed itself up on iTunes Top 10 Albums’ charts in Japan, the United States, Canada and Australia.

As of 12 o’clock at noon in local time on Tuesday, the album is currently placed at No. 1 in Japan, No. 7 in the U.S. and No. 9 in Canada and Australia’s top 10 albums’ charts.

Composed of seven tracks including the hybrid remix title tune “Sherlock,” their fourth mini-album is concurrently competing against the Grammy’s big winner Adele’s sophomore album “21” and British boy band One Direction’s first full-track album “Up All Night” on U.S., Canada and Australia’s iTunes list.

The group returned with the hippie image for the album released on March 19, which is composed of other tracks “Clue,” “Note,” “Alarm Clock,” “The Reason,” “Stranger” and “Honesty.”

Composed of Taemin, Key, Minho, Jonghyun and Onew, SHINee will give their comeback performance on Mnet’s “M! CountDown” this week.
