BTS Surpasses 2 Million 1st-Day Album Sales With Anthology Album “Proof”
BTS has once again become a double-million seller in just one day!
On June 10, BTS released their new anthology album “Proof” at 1 p.m. KST. According to Hanteo Chart, by 9 p.m. KST the same day, the group had sold over 2.15 million copies.
What’s especially notable about this achievement is that it isn’t far off from BTS’s second-highest first-week sales record of 2.27 million copies, which they achieved with their latest album “BE (Deluxe Edition).” This record is bested only by BTS’s “Map of the Soul: 7,” which sold 3.3 million copies in its first week.
After first becoming million sellers in 2016 with their second full album “WINGS,” BTS has consistently sold over 1.13 million copies with each of their albums over the past six years.
BTS’s latest anthology album “Proof” features a compilation of the group’s past title tracks, various solo and unit songs, demo versions, unreleased songs, as well as three new tracks, “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment),” “Run BTS,” and “For Youth.”
