Stray Kids Becomes 2nd K-Pop Artist In Billboard 200 History To Spend 11 Consecutive Weeks In Top 80
Ever since its debut at No. 1 back in June, Stray Kids’ latest album “★★★★★ (5-STAR)” has never dropped below the top 80 of the Billboard 200 (Billboard’s weekly ranking of the most popular albums in the United States).
On August 22 local time, Billboard revealed that “★★★★★ (5-STAR)” had climbed back up to No. 76 in its 11th consecutive week on the chart.
Not only is “★★★★★ (5-STAR)” Stray Kids’ first album ever to spend 11 weeks on the Billboard 200, but Stray Kids is now only the second K-pop artist in history to chart an album for 11 consecutive weeks in the top 80 (following BTS).
“★★★★★ (5-STAR)” also climbed back up several other Billboard charts this week: the album rose to No. 2 on the World Albums chart, No. 9 on the Top Current Album Sales chart, and No. 10 on the Top Album Sales chart in its 11th week.
Finally, Stray Kids held relatively steady at No. 46 on this week’s Artist 100, marking their 31st non-consecutive week on the chart.
Congratulations to Stray Kids!
