BTS Earns Fifth No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart With ‘Be’

BTS lands its fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart with Be. Be is the second chart-topper of 2020 for the group, following Map of the Soul: 7, which debuted at No. 1 back in March.

The Be album is a mostly-Korean-language release, but does feature the group’s first all-English song, “Dynamite.” The track marked the act’s first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated Sept. 5. It also recently garnered the group its first Grammy Award nomination, for best pop duo/group performance.

BTS is the first group to land two No. 1 albums in 2020, and the second act overall, following rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again. In total, BTS has now led the Billboard 200 five times, achieving this in just a little over 2 1/2 years.
