BTS makes it to the billboard 200!

Our boys BTS have earned another major chart moment in the United States. Their new album compilation, The Most Beautiful Moment In Life; Young Forever places No. 107 on the Billboard 200. According to Nielsen Music, they earned 6,000 album units in the week ending May 5 in the U.S., The new album Young Forever combines the tracks from their 2015 EPs The Most Beautiful Moment In Life Pt.1 and Pt.2 along with their new songs and remixes. The bulk of Young Forever‘s units were driven by track equivalent albums, thanks to the popularity of the individual songs on the album. In terms of just albums sold, Young Forever has sold a little under 2,000 copies during the tracking week. BTS called the chart  success “An amazing achievement as musicians” Young Forever marks BTS’ second appearance on the Billboard 200 after The Most Beautiful Moment In Life Pt.2 placed No.171 on the charts in December last year. BTS also becomes the second K-POP idol to make two consecutive on the ranking, the other artist was our one and only G-Dragon who had sent two consecutive releases to the Billboard 200 with 2012’s One Of A Kind EP (which placed No.161) and 2013’s Coup D’Etat Pt.1 EP (which placed No.182). The boys have another achievement on the World Digital Songs chart where they land 10 entries on the chart and control the top 3 with their songs Fire, Save Me and Epilogue: Young Forever. No K-POP act has ever controlled the top 3 with PSY and BIGBANG owning top 2 positions at different positions throughout the charts history. BTS also joins small club K-POP acts with a No.1 on the World Digital Songs that currently includes PSY (who has 4 No.1s) BIGBANG (with three), 2NE1 and G-Dragon and Taeyeang (both who have one chart-topper). BTS’ new album is led by theor hip-hop/house joint Fire, that displays some of the band’s most intense raps and choreography routines up to date! After releasing the MV’s for Young Forever and Fire, the boys are still planning to release another MV for their chart-topper Save Me, to further promote the release. BTS have also recently been announced to be headliners for both east and west coast dates to the American K-POP festival/convention KCON at Newark’s Prudential Center and Los Angeles’ Staple Center. The boys are slowly conquering this world with their amazing singing, dancing and rapping bringing many people closer with music. May the odds be forever in your favor with the new album release, keep making us proud and continue to make your fame bigger than before, you guys have your fans, friends and family all behind you ready to catch you if you fall and to help you back up to your feet. Lots of love from the ARMY and everyone who you hold dear.
