Every Track On BTS’ Map Of The Soul: Persona Debuted On The Billboard Top 40 Digital Charts
We stan one (1) group.
There’s no ignoring the fact that BTS are taking over the world right now.
With their latest album ‘Map Of The Soul: Persona’ debuting at number one on the UK Album Charts, becoming their first UK #1 album, and it also rising to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, making it their 11th consecutive top 10 project on the World Album charts, it’s clear that these boys are proving to be fierce competition for other artists.
The album's rise to the top spot makes for their third number one album in the past 11 months, the only other band to achieve such success being The Beatles in 1995-1996. And you can just check the Billboard Top 40 Digital charts to prove how seriously these guys should be taken, as every song from the album has scored a place in the chart, reports Forbes.
With the lead single from the album ‘Boy With Luv’ featuring Halsey breaking the YouTube record for most views on a music video in under 24 hours, it was clear from the get-go that this album would be a game changer for the boys. The single also charted in the top 20 in the UK, and in the US became the highest ever debut for a K-pop group, debuting at number 8.
Now, after performing on SNL and being listed on the 2019 Time 100 list, the boys are about to embark on their UK and EU leg of their world tour, and you catch them playing two nights (both of which are sold out) at London’s Wembley stadium.
We’re so pleased for the group and can’t wait to see what success is in store for them in the future. Whatever it is, we know it’s going to be epic (and record-breaking).
