BTS Becomes The First Korean Act To Hit No. 1 On The U.K. Albums Chart

After sending albums to the No. 1 spot in countries all around the world, K-pop icons BTS have finally replicated the feat in the U.K., which remained one of the only large music markest left where they hadn’t yet led the charge.

The all-male vocal group’s new album Map of the Soul: Persona debuts at No. 1 in the U.K. this week thanks to 26,500 equivalent units shifted. By reaching the highest possible spot, the seven-member group has made history as the first K-pop outfit to hit No. 1 in the country, and they remain one of the only names in the space to make it to the chart at all.

Map of the Soul: Persona gives BTS their first chart-topper across the pond and their second appearance inside the top 10. They first reached the important region last year with Love Yourself: Tear, which rose all the way to No. 8. At the time, they became the first K-pop group to reach the highest tier on the tally. The two other albums that were a part of the Love Yourself series, Love Yourself: Her and Love Yourself: Answer, both stalled just a few rungs shy of becoming top 10s, as the two only made it to No. 14.

Map of the Soul: Persona is powered primarily by lead single “Boy With Luv,” which features American pop singer Halsey. The tune, which was released at the same time as the full album (instead of beforehand, which is customary in most Western markets), also becomes BTS’ biggest hit on the songs ranking, as it debuts at No. XXX.

BTS replaces teen pop superstar Billie Eilish at the top of the albums ranking, where she has now ruled for two consecutive frames. The globally adored talent started her debut full-length When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? at No. 1 two weeks back, and it was able to withstand tough competition from R&B singer-songwriter Khalid, whose new album Free Spirit was forced to settle for the runner-up position.
