Just when it seemed BTS couldn’t get any bigger, they dropped their newest album and it broke more records. Their latest album, “Map of the Soul: 7” became their fourth No 1 album on the Billboard 200. It sold an impressive 422,000 albums in its first week which is more than any other artist sold in their first week this year. In total, the album sold 4.5 million units in its first week worldwide, reports AllKpop.
With all those sales, that means BTS took the number one spot in many music markets. The biggest Kpop group in the world came in at No 1 on 7 of the largest music markets in the world. This is the first time an Asian group achieved that feat, reports Forbes.
BTS came in at number one in the United States, Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, France, South Korea, and Canada along with numerous other smaller markets. In their hometown of South Korea alone, the album sold an unbelievable 3.1 million copies.
