BTS, The Best was released last June 16 and surpassed the first-week album sales record of 2021 on the Oricon Chart within a single day. With this album, BTS also became the first Korean male act to have an album achieve a million certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ). While the album was released in June, its performance on the Billboard 200 shows that the album had only recently become available in the United States.
Additionally, BTS, The Best was the fifth top-selling album of this week.
Meanwhile over on the Hot 100, “Butter” continues to stay on the top 10, ranking this week at No. 7. The hit fell to No. 4 last week after holding the top position for a record-breaking nine non-consecutive weeks. The song also switched places with “Permission to Dance” twice.
This extraordinary achievement means that BTS as a group held the top spot on the Hot 100 for 10 consecutive weeks before being replaced by "Stay" by The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber.
Congratulations to BTS and ARMY!
