BTS Dominates Oricon, Enters Billboard 200 For The Sixth Time With “Face Yourself”
We are no longer surprised. It’s BTS in the first place.
South Korean boy group BTS continues chart success with new Japanese studio album Face Yourself.
The boy group topped the weekly album chart for Japan’s main music sales tracker, Oricon. Face Yourself, which was released on April 4, is number one on Oricon for the week of April 2 to 8 after reaching 282,000 copies sold in one week.
BTS’ third Japanese studio album also dominated Oricon’s daily album chart for six consecutive days.
Aside from topping Oricon’s daily and weekly chart, Face Yourself debuted on Billboard 200 at the 43rd spot with 12,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 5 in the United States.
The feat marked BTS’ sixth album to appear on Billboard 200 following The Most Beautiful Moment In Life, Pt. 2 in 2015, The Most Beautiful Moment In Life: Young Forever and Wings in 2016, and You Never Walk Alone and Love Yourself: Her in 2017.
Face Yourself also debuted at the top spot of Billboard’s World Albums chart. The album is the group’s fifth chart-topper, making them the only K-Pop act to claim such record on the chart. It is also the first Japanese album by a K-Pop artist to land on the top spot of World Albums.
Face Yourself is a ten-track album composed of Japanese versions of BTS’ hits such as “Blood, Sweat, and Tears”, “DNA”, “Spring Day”, and “Mic Drop”. It also introduces two new tracks aside from the “Intro” and “Outro” including “Don’t Leave Me” which will be used as a soundtrack for the Japanese adaptation of tvN’s Signal.
