BTS have a new number one album. As expected, the K-pop group’s latest release “Map of the Soul: Persona” debuts on top the “Billboard” 200 Album chart this week, moving 230,000 equivalent album units, 196,000 in traditional album sales.
“Persona” marks the best sales week for the band. It is also their third number one album in just 11 months following “Love Yourself: Tear,” which topped the chart in June of last year, and “Love Yourself: Answer,” which earned the top spot in September of last year.
BTS are now the first band to have three number ones in less than a year since The Beatles did it between 1995 and 1996 with “Anthology 1,” “Anthology 2” and “Anthology 3.”
Btw, I can't get enough of this song...
