BTS has achieved their 3rd #1 album on the Billboard 200 Chart, with over 230,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. for the week ending the 19th of April 2019.
This chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, made up of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums, and streaming equivalent albums.
This significant accomplishment is no easy feat – indeed, it is rare for any act to tally three chart-topping albums in less than a year. For BTS, the stunning septet needed just under eleven months! Their June 2018 release of Love Yourself: Tear was their first #1, and September saw the chart-topping success of Love Yourself: Answer.
Before BTS, the last group to achieve this within such a quick span was The Beatles in 1995-1996.
Upon this announcement, artists, media, and ARMY across the world celebrated:
This incredible new achievement is testament to the face that BTS is, indeed, bulletproof.
