"Map Of The Soul: 7 sold well without the aid of a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer, nor any merchandise/album bundles, as has become the norm for many major releases"

"Their success is not a fluke, because flukes don’t last for four albums straight. @BTS_twt have outsold some of the biggest, most reliable names in pop music because they have become one of the biggest, most reliable names in pop music themselves."
