BTS debut at Number 1 with Map of The Soul:7 and clinch the fastest-selling album of 2020 so far.
Map Of The Soul:7 is the K-Pop band’s second UK Number 1 album, following last summer’s Map of The Soul: Persona, which made them the first Korean act to score a Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart. View BTS' Official UK Chart history in full.
The album’s opening week chart sales of 38,000 means it overtakes Eminem’s Music to Be Murdered By, which previously had the year’s biggest debut week with just over 36,000 units. Just under 32,000 of BTS’s opening week figure came from pure physical and download sales.
