BTS’s ‘BE’ Is Now Their Longest-Running Album Atop Billboard Top Album Sales Chart


BTS’s BE rockets back into the Billboard 200’s Top 10 this week thanks to its “Essential Edition” re-release. This week’s sales come predominantly from CDs, and the album consequently returns to No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart for a third week, making BE the longest-running BTS album atop the chart.


The Korean pop septet’s latest album leaps 67 spots on the Billboard 200 to land at No. 7 this week with 36,000 album-equivalent units, a 254% increase over last week. That includes 28,000 album sales, a whopping 888% bump over last week. Album sales were juiced by the release of BE (Essential Edition), which included a CD copy of the album, 140-page photobook, two different types of photocards and a poster. The set retailed for approximately $30.


BE debuted atop the Billboard 200 last November with 242,000 equivalent units, including 177,000 pure sales. It marked BTS’s fifth No. 1 album on the chart and made them the fastest group to earn five U.S. chart-toppers since the Beatles. It also spawned two No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100: “Dynamite” and “Life Goes On,” the former of which shattered numerous sales and streaming records and earned the group its first Grammy nomination, for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.



This week’s supercharged sales bring BE’s total sales to 535,000 units since its release, according to Chart Data. The album technically surpassed 500,000 units back in December with help from the pre-release sales of “Dynamite,” which exceeded 2 million and thus added 200,000 units to the album’s sales total. But BE has now sold half a million copies independently of the pre-release boost from its biggest single.


“Dynamite” also enjoys a hefty sales bump this week, returning to No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart. It has now spent 13 weeks atop the chart and is tied for the third-longest-running No. 1 hit in Digital Song Sales chart history. BTS performed the smash hit, along with several other BE tracks, during their MTV Unplugged special last Tuesday.

BTS Makes History As 1st Asian Artist To Be Crowned IFPI’s Global Recording Artist Of The Year

Mar 4, 2021
by J. K

BTS’s “dynamite” 2020 has led to them scoring the IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year Award!


The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) is a non-profit organization that represents the recorded music industry worldwide. Its annual Global Recording Artist of the Year Award recognizes an act’s worldwide popularity across digital and physical music formats (from streaming to vinyl), and it covers their entire collection of work.


On March 4 local time, it was announced that BTS has grabbed the win for 2020. BTS is now the first winner to perform primarily in a language other than English, and they’re the first South Korean and Asian act to achieve the feat. All previous recipients have been from either North America (Taylor Swift, Drake) or the United Kingdom (One Direction, Adele, Ed Sheeran).


BTS’s hugely successful 2020 included the release of their Billboard 200-topping album “Map of the Soul: 7,” which IFPI notes is one of the most pre-ordered albums of all time. They went on to share their Japanese language album “Map of the Soul : 7 ~ The Journey ~” in July, which surpassed 500,000 copies within just two days of its release.


The group then made history with their smash hit single “Dynamite,” becoming the first all-Korean act to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song has also been nominated for a Grammy in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category. BTS continued their success with the release of their album “BE” in November, which became their fifth album to top the Billboard 200.


IFPI’s Top 10 Global Recording Artists of 2020 are:


1. BTS
2. Taylor Swift
3. Drake
4. The Weeknd
5. Billie Eilish
6. Eminem
7. Post Malone
8. Ariana Grande
9. Juice Wrld
10. Justin Bieber


BTS previously took No. 2 on the IFPI’s Global Recording Artist of the Year chart in 2018 and No. 7 in 2019.


Congratulations to BTS!



I'm so happy..that's such a huge achievement!
