Hot off the heels of their history-making debut on the UK album charts, BTS are at it again - this time on the Billboard 200 Album Chart!

According to Billboard, BTS' new album "WINGS" has debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at No. 26 with 16,000 units sold in the week ending on October 13. These figures mark the best ever week for a K-pop album - not only is "WINGS" now the highest charting K-pop album ever (record previously held by 2NE1's "Crush" at No. 61), it also logged in the highest sales for a K-pop album (record previously held by EXO with 6,000 copies of "Exodus" sold).

The massive success of "WINGS" means that BTS is now the first K-pop act to have three albums on the Billboard 200 chart, the other two being "The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2" and "The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever". The record was previously held by G-Dragon, who had two albums make the chart.

A big congratulations to BTS on yet another record-breaking achievement!
