BTS’s RM Sets New Record On Billboard 200 As “Indigo” Re-Enters Chart After Vinyl Release
On July 25 local time, Billboard announced that RM’s 2022 solo album “Indigo” had re-entered its Top 200 Albums chart (which ranks the most popular albums in the United States) at No. 53 following its release on vinyl this month.
With this achievement, “Indigo” has now spent a total of seven non-consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200, making RM the first Korean soloist ever to chart an album for seven weeks.
“Indigo” also debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart, making it the highest-ranking album by any Korean soloist in the history of the chart.
Outside of the Billboard 200, the album’s vinyl release propelled “Indigo” back onto several other Billboard charts this week as well. “Indigo” re-entered the World Albums chart at No. 2, in addition to sweeping the No. 3 spot on both the Top Album Sales chart and the Top Current Album Sales chart.
RM also re-entered Billboard’s Artist 100 at No. 25 this week, marking his eighth overall week on the chart.
Congratulations to RM on his historic achievement!
