RM becomes the highest charting solo act among BTS members on Billboard 200

(Bangtan Boys) BTS, Rap Monster
BTS's RM has broken j-Hope's record on Billboard 200!

The previous record for the highest solo act chart ranking of any BTS member was held by j-Hope with 'Hope World' at #38, and RM has now broken that with his own playlist, 'mono.'. The playlist debuted at #26 this week on Billboard 200 for the week of November 3, 2018. Meanwhile, EXO's Lay also made his debut on Billboard 200 alongside RM at #21.


Congratulations to RM!

What an awkward title for this article. Allkpop called Lay the highest charting K-Pop solo artist in another article. Even Billboard acknowledged that Lay's album is M-Pop (Mandarin-Pop) not K-Pop because all the songs are in English and Mandarin Chinese, not Korean. His achievement for M-Pop should not be overlooked, nor should RM's success with Mono. Soompi has a perfect solution. They refer to RM as the highest ranking Korean solo artist. That is just PERFECT!

Re-read... "RM becomes the highest charting solo act AMONG BTS on Billboard 200."


You're an idiot complaining because you can't read properly.

RM only has 2 days to chart. I bet if he had a week he will be in top 10

AHHHHH! I am so proud of him!!! He deserves the world and I would do almost anything to give it to him. He is so adorable, and handsome, and smart, and just simply amazing and perfect with all of his flaws. They are what makes Namjoon, Namjoon. Borahae BTS!!!

Lay charted higher, but RM is the highest charting Korean solo artist. In my opinion RM is the highest charting K-Pop solo artist as well since Lay's album is in English and Chinese. Lay's album has 22 songs - 11 songs in Mandarin Chinese and 11 versions of the same songs in English. It is not a K-Pop album.
