Bangtan Boys' Japanese Album Makes It on Billboard Chart


    April 11, 2018 11:42

    The third Japanese album of boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, hit 43rd on the Billboard 200 chart in a rare feat for a Japanese-language album by a K-pop act.

    "Face Yourself" was released in Japan last week.

    "It doesn't matter what language they sing in: BTS seem to always conquer the Billboard charts," Billboard said.

    "The feat is particularly impressive for BTS as 'Face Yourself' is the band's new Japanese-language album featuring only two previously unheard new songs -- along with new intro and outro tracks -- and their Korean hits re-recorded in Japanese (a common practice in the K-pop scene)."

    The boys have a record of rising to the highest ranking on the Billboard 200 among K-pop singers. Their fifth extended play album "Love Yourself: Her," which was released in September last year, hit seventh place.
