BTS continues to rank high on Billboard’s weekly charts!

On August 16, Billboard released the top 10 rankings for its famous Hot 100 chart, its weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States, as well as key results from the Billboard 200, its weekly ranking of the most popular albums in the United States.

BTS’s Japanese compilation album “BTS, The Best” debuted on this week’s Top 200 Albums chart (“the Billboard 200”) at No. 19. This is BTS’s ninth album to enter the top 20 of the Billboard 200.

“BTS, The Best” was released on June 16, 2021 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). Even though the album was released in June, its performance on the Billboard 200 this week reflects the fact that it only recently became available for purchase in the United States.

Billboard also announced that “BTS, The Best” was the fifth top-selling album of this week.

Meanwhile, BTS’s “Butter” holds on to its top 10 spot on the Hot 100, ranking this week at No. 7. “Butter” 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 BTS’s “Permission to Dance” twice, meaning that BTS as a group held the top spot on the Hot 100 for 10 consecutive weeks before being replaced by The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber’s “Stay.”

“Butter” held on to its top spot on the Digital Song Sales chart for the 11th week, and “Permission to Dance” came in second.
