NewJeans, Stray Kids, ENHYPEN, ITZY, LE SSERAFIM, TXT, BTS’s Jimin, And More Sweep Top Spots On Billboard’s World Albums Chart
Billboard has published its World Albums chart for the week ending on August 26!
NewJeans’s latest mini album “Get Up” spent its fourth consecutive week at No. 1, making it only the second K-pop girl group album ever to top the chart for four weeks (following BLACKPINK’s “THE ALBUM” in 2020). “Get Up” also became the first K-pop girl group album ever to spend four weeks in the top 20 of the Billboard 200.
Additionally, NewJeans’ debut EP “New Jeans” rose to No. 9 in its 34th non-consecutive week on the World Albums chart.
ENHYPEN’s “DARK BLOOD” rose to No. 4 in its 12th consecutive week on the World Albums chart—and it also re-entered the Billboard 200 this week, making it the group’s first album ever to spend nine weeks on the chart.
Meanwhile, LE SSERAFIM’s first full-length album “UNFORGIVEN” climbed back up to No. 6 in its 16th consecutive week on the World Albums chart.
Congratulations to all of the artists!
