On September 17 local time, Billboard announced that V had entered its Top 200 Albums chart (its weekly ranking of the most popular albums in the United States) for the first time as a solo artist.

V’s first solo album “Layover” debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 2, tying the record set by his bandmates Jimin and Suga for the highest ranking ever achieved on the chart by a Korean solo album.

According to Luminate (formerly Nielsen Music), “Layover” earned a total of 100,000 equivalent album units during the week ending on September 14. The album’s total score consisted of 88,000 traditional album sales and 9,000 streaming equivalent album (SEA) units, which translates to 12.95 million on-demand audio streams over the course of the week. “Layover” also racked up 3,000 track equivalent album (TEA) units in its first week.
