Stray Kids’ “5-STAR” Becomes Their 1st Album To Chart For 13 Weeks On Billboard 200
Back in June, Stray Kids’ latest album “★★★★★ (5-STAR)” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, making the group the first K-pop artist ever to top the chart with all three of their first entries.
The album has since remained a steady seller in the United States, where it is currently the best-selling K-pop album of 2023 in terms of pure sales. For the week ending on September 9, “★★★★★ (5-STAR)” spent its 13th consecutive week on the Billboard 200 at No. 121—making it Stray Kids’ first album ever to chart for 13 weeks.
Meanwhile, Stray Kids has now overtaken BLACKPINK and SEVENTEEN to become the K-pop artist with the sixth most cumulative weeks on Billboard’s Artist 100 (following BTS, TXT, NCT 127, EXO, and TWICE). Stray Kids climbed back up to No. 54 this week, marking their 33rd non-consecutive week on the chart.
“★★★★★ (5-STAR)” also stayed strong at No. 6 in its 13th week on Billboard’s World Albums chart, in addition to rising to No. 13 on the Top Current Album Sales chart and No. 15 on the Top Album Sales chart.
Congratulations to Stray Kids on their ongoing success on the U.S. charts!
