TWICE Becomes 1st K-Pop Female Artist In Billboard 200 History To Chart 3 Albums For 8 Weeks

TWICE has made Billboard history once again!

Back in March, TWICE set a new record for the biggest U.S. sales week of any female K-pop artist in history with their latest mini album “READY TO BE,” which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

In the two months since, the mini album has consistently charted on the Billboard 200 each week—and for the week ending on May 13, “READY TO BE” spent its eighth consecutive week on the chart at No. 185.

TWICE now holds the title of being the only female K-pop artist in history to chart three different albums for eight weeks each on the Billboard 200. (Before “READY TO BE,” both “Formula of Love: O+T=<3” and “BETWEEN 1&2” spent eight weeks each on the chart.)

Outside of the Billboard 200, “READY TO BE” stayed strong at No. 5 on the World Albums chart, and it also climbed back up to No. 9 on both the Top Album Sales chart and the Top Current Album Sales chart.

Meanwhile, TWICE re-entered Billboard’s Artist 100 at No. 62, marking their 28th overall week on the chart.

Congratulations to TWICE on their impressive achievement!
