The latest album by Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, has reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. "Map of the Soul: Persona," which was released on April 12, is their third album to top the U.S. chart.
"BTS captures its third No. 1 album in less than 12 months on the Billboard 200 chart, as 'Map of the Soul: Persona' debuts atop the list," Billboard said on Sunday.
"Starting from the week they got their first No. 1, 'Love Yourself: Tear' (June 2, 2018-dated chart), continuing through their second No. 1, 'Love Yourself: Answer' (Sept. 8, 2018), and now with 'Persona' (April 27, 2019), that's a span of just under 11 months," it added.
The music magazine said it was the "fastest accumulation of No. 1 albums by a group since the Monkees in 1967," when they topped the chart with three albums in nine months and three weeks.
