BTS' newly released album Love Yourself 'Her' has been nothing short of a massive success ever since it was released to overwhelming reception last week, and this success has now translated to a historic debut on the Billboard 200 album chart!

For the week ending September 21, BTS made a massive debut on the Billboard 200 chart, coming in at an impressive No.7 with approximately 31,000 units (18,000 traditional sales, under 4,000 in TEA, and under 10,000 in SEA). Not only have BTS managed to eclipse their previous biggest sales week of 11,000 (set by WINGS last October), the boys' No.7 placing is the highest-charting album ever on the Billboard 200 by a K-pop act, beating the previous benchmark of No.26 set by none other than BTS themselves.

WOW!

Congrats to all the ARMYs and to BTS for this historic debut on the Billboard 200 album chart! To celebrate, let's re-watch their awesome "DNA" MV again (and see what other record is next in line to be broken!):
