BTS has made Billboard history once again!
On December 18 local time, Billboard revealed that BTS’s “Love Yourself: Answer” had ranked No. 82 on its latest Top 200 Albums chart, marking the album’s 16th consecutive week on the chart.
With this latest achievement, BTS has set a new record for the longest-charting Korean album in the history of the Billboard 200, breaking its own record of 15 consecutive weeks set by “Love Yourself: Tear” earlier this year.
“Love Yourself: Answer,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in September, also recently came in at No. 82 on Billboard’s year-end Top 200 Albums chart—making BTS the first Korean artist ever to land an album on the year-end chart. (“Love Yourself: Tear,” BTS’s first album to hit No. 1 on the chart, took No. 101 for the year, followed by BTS’s 2017 mini album “Love Yourself: Her” at No. 150.)
Meanwhile, BTS continues to hold the record for the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 by any artist on Billboard’s Social 50 chart—the group has now spent 75 consecutive weeks at the top of the chart (with a total of 105 weeks at No. 1 overall).
BTS also dominated Billboard’s World Albums chart this week, sweeping the top three spots with “Love Yourself: Answer,” “Love Yourself: Tear,” and “Love Yourself: Her” respectively.
Congratulations to BTS on another impressive achievement!
