According to an article from Billboard, the group's new album 'Love Yourself: Her' made its debut into the chart at number 7. Let's take a look at all the records BTS has broken so far in this comeback.

BTS continue to push where no K-pop act has gone before with a debut in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. Units are the sum of pure USA album sales, United States track sales/10 and U.S. track streams/1500. BTS earned the highest-charting album ever on the Billboard 200 chart by any Korean act and the biggest sales week. And BTS now has the most albums by any K-pop artist to enter the Billboard 200. It's the first time an album by BTS has American distribution, as the group's previous releases were issued through US digital retailers independently by the group's South Korean label, Big Hit Entertainment.

As a credit to their consistency, BTS now holds the record for the second most number of weeks in the Billboard Social 50 chart. Despite their previous successes, the group has yet to get a release on the Hot 100.

He added, "So it is a terrorist organisation!" Brooks also did not state the US' position on the agitation for a Biafran state. CESJET wondered why Rusell would make such comment when a "competent Nigerian court" has issued an order proscribing IPOB.

"Her" stands at no. 14 on the U.K.'s album chart and its title song "DNA" now sits at no. 41 on Spotify's "Global Top 50" chart. BTS also became the first Korean act to reach more than 1 billion streams on Spotify.

Billboard also noted on its website that "Love Yourself Seung Her" took the spot on the chart with 31,000 equivalent album units sold in the week ending September 21, citing data from Nielsen Music. "DNA" also became the fastest K-pop music video to reach 20 million views on YouTube.
