BTS’ Suga Breaks Record For Korean Solo Artists On Billboard 200 With “D-2”
Under his rapper name Agust D, Suga released “D-2” on May 22 along with a music video for the title track “Daechwita.”
On June 1 (local time), the official Billboard Charts Twitter account revealed that “D-2” had debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 for the week (week ending June 6). With this achievement, Suga breaks the record for the highest ranking on the Billboard 200 by a Korean solo artist. The record was previously held by fellow BTS member RM’s “mono.” which debuted at No. 26 after its release in October 2018. Prior to RM, J-Hope’s 2018 mixtape “Hope World” had the record, debuting at No. 63 and rising to No. 38.
The Billboard 200 is calculated based on physical album sales, streaming equivalent albums (streaming numbers converted into album sales numbers), and track equivalent albums (track download numbers converted into album sales numbers).
Congratulations to Suga!
