BTS was able to land at number one on the "Billboard" 200 Album chart. This is their second number one album after "Love Yourself: Tear", which dropped earlier in 2018, also landed at number one. The K-Pop band moved 185,000 equivalent album units this week.
BTS is the first pop act with two number ones in less than 12 months since One Direction topped the list on December 6, 2014, with "Four", which followed "Midnight Memories" arrival on the December 14, 2013-dated chart.
his is one of those really rare moments when a non-english album makes it to number one on the charts. Like "Her and Tear" "Answer" is performed mostly in Korean with a few lyrics in English. The last mostly non-English album at number one came in 2006 when Il Divo’s "Ancora" topped the chart.
Side note, if you haven't listened to the album, start with this song! My favorite on the album.
