BTS’s J-Hope Becomes Highest Ranking K-Pop Soloist On Billboard 200
BTS’s J-Hope has achieved a huge milestone with his latest mixtape “Hope World”!
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums, and streaming equivalent albums.
J-Hope’s solo mixtape entered the chart at No. 63 for the week ending March 1. According to Nielsen Music, the album earned 9,000 equivalent album units, with 8,000 of the sum coming from traditional album sales.
The BTS member has now become the highest ranking K-pop solo act on the Billboard 200. So far, only four other K-pop soloists, including BoA, BIGBANG’s Taeyang, G-Dragon, and SHINee’s Jonghyun, have charted on the Billboard 200.
Congratulations to J-Hope on his Billboard 200 debut!
