Boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, have entered the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at No. 1 with their latest album "Love Yourself: Tear."
The band's third full-length album was released on May 18.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on traditional album sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums.
BTS became the first K-pop act to achieve the feat, though Psy rose to No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart, which ranks the most popular songs of the week, with "Gangnam Style" in 2012.
"Love Yourself: Tear" is also the first foreign-language No. 1 album since "Ancora" by the four-man crossover vocalists Il Divo to top the Billboard 200.
It is the second top 10 for BTS after "Love Yourself: Her," which peaked at No. 7 in October last year.
