BTS’s new album is having a record-breaking second week on charts around the world!
Last week, BTS’s fourth full album “Map of the Soul: 7” became the first album by an Asian group to take top spots on all the charts of the world’s five largest music markets: the United States, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, and France. It’s also topped charts in many other regions around the world.
On March 6 local time, the album’s ranking for its second week on the United Kingdom Official Albums Chart was revealed. “Map of the Soul: 7” takes No. 3 on the chart for the week ending on March 12.
This makes it the first album by a Korean artist to spend two weeks in the Top 3 of the Official Albums Chart in the United Kingdom. BTS’s previously highest ranking album on the chart was “Map of the Soul: Persona,” which took No. 1 in its first week and then No. 7 in its second.
Meanwhile, their title track “ON” grabs the No. 45 spot on the Official Singles Chart for the region.
“Map of the Soul: 7” also takes the No. 3 spot in its second week on Germany’s Offizielle Deutsche Charts, becoming the first Korean album to do so.
