Our Kim Da-mi tells us more.
Top of the charts again, BTS have captured their second number one on the Billboard 200 with their new album ‘Love Yourself: Answer.’
This comes only three months since the K-pop group had their first number one album with ‘Love Yourself: Tear.’

The U.S. music chart Billboard 200 ranks albums based on both offline and digital sales, including streaming.
According to Nielson Music, the latest album by BTS sold 185,000 equivalent album units in August, 141,000 of which were traditional album sales.

Billboard says the boyband is the first group to score two Number One albums in a calendar year since English-Irish boyband One Direction in 2014.

The new album is the conclusion of BTS’ Love Yourself series.
The music video for its hit song ‘Idol’ also broke a YouTube record with 56-point-two-six million views within 24 hours of its release, smashing the previous record set by Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do.’

Fans and celebrities around the world, including American rapper Nicki Minaj who made a guest appearance on one of the album's tracks, have been sending the group messages congratulating them for their achievement.

BTS are currently on their sold-out Love Yourself world tour, performing in 16 cities including Chicago, Paris and Amsterdam.
