BTS has maintained the top spot on Australia's album chart!

The album Map of the Soul: 7, released on February 21, has held the No.1 position on ARIA's Album Chart for the second consecutive week!

This is the first time BTS has held the No.1 spot on the ARIA chart for longer than the first week of release. Map of the Soul: 7 is the K-pop group's second album to hit No.1 in Australia, their first was with Map of the Soul: Persona in April 2019. At the time they also became the first-ever album in an Asian language to reach No.1.

The group's sustained success on the Australian charts speaks to the dedication of Australian fans, as well as the increased availability of physical BTS albums in stores nationwide. BTS are the only K-pop group to have topped the ARIA Albums Chart.

The group has been busy since the album release with multiple broadcast schedules. Most recently they released an official music video for pre-single "Black Swan".

Congrats BTS and Aussie ARMY!
