BTS earns their fifth No. 1 album with 'BE' on Billboard 200, their second chart-topper this year after 'Map Of The Soul: 7' 

Kicking off Monday on a huge note, global superstars BTS have earned their fifth No. 1 album with their latest release ‘BE’ on the Billboard 200 chart. The chart announcement was made on November 30, 2020. This makes their second chart-topper after their February 21, 2020, full-length album release ‘Map Of The Soul: 7’.

According to Billboard, “Of Be’s 242,000 units earned in the tracking week ending Nov. 26, album sales comprise 177,000, TEA units comprise 35,000 and SEA units comprise 30,000 (equating to 48.56 million on-demand streams of the album’s songs).”

The report further revealed, “‘Be’ is the 11th mostly non-English album to hit No. 1. Of the 11 leaders that were recorded mostly in a language other than English, five have been by BTS. The album’s first week is the largest for an album by a group, both in terms of equivalent album units and album sales, since BTS’ own last No. 1 album, Map of the Soul: 7, earned 422,000 units in its first week, of which 347,000 were in album sales (chart dated March 7).”

In ‘BE’, BTS opens themselves up to express their mixed feelings about this situation—fear and anxiety mingled with the determination to overcome all this. The album contains the band’s emotions and ruminations they had throughout this year, and the story of “us” continuing the existential journey. That is also the reasoning behind the album’s title, BE, that stands for “to be” or “existence” and does not abide by any form.
