  1. BTS Just Shattered A Major iTunes Record Formerly Held By Adele Jul 6, 2020 - Bryan Rolli (Senior Contributor) Quick! Pretend to act surprised—BTS just broke another record. On Sunday night, the Korean pop septet’s “Black Swan” topped the iTunes chart in Cape Verde, the 103rd country in which it had accomplished such a feat. In doing so, “Black Swan” reached No. 1 on iTunes in more countries than any song in history, passing Adele’s “Hello,” which held the record for nearly five years with 102 countries. As with many BTS records, the push for “Black Swan” to dominate iTunes originated on social media. BTS fans, known collectively as ARMY, implored one another on Twitter to buy the song en masse in order to push it over the edge. As is customary when the BTS ARMY set their minds to something, they quickly accomplished the goal, rocketing “Black Swan” up the iTunes charts in Nepal, Zimbabwe and finally Cape Verde. ARMY celebrated the record on Twitter as well, with “BTS WORLD DOMINATION” becoming the most popular trend in the world on Sunday night. It’s fitting that “Black Swan” would be the song to smash the global iTunes record for BTS. Released in January, the contemplative emo-trap tune marked the first single off BTS’ Map of the Soul: 7 and effectively ushered in a new era for the group. Map of the Soul: 7 debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with a staggering 422,000 album-equivalent units. It remains one of the biggest bows of 2020, and it cemented the group’s status as one of the most popular artists in the world, no qualifications necessary. Ironically, “Black Swan” finds the members of BTS musing on their fear of losing their passion for music in grave terms. They confess that falling out of love with their craft would be akin to death; the lyrics translate roughly to: "If this can no longer resonate, no longer make my heart vibrate, then like this may be how I die my first death.” For now, the members of BTS don’t seem to be in any danger of losing their passion—and they’re certainly not in danger of losing an ounce of popularity. The group’s “Bang Bang Con: The Live” recently broke a virtual attendance record, with 756,000 fans tuning into the paid concert live stream. As long as BTS has the passion to make music, fans will be there to support them—and probably break a slew of records in the process. source

Kim BTS’s “Map of the Soul: 7” was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ)!

  7. Good news for UK ARMYs, UK supermarket ASDA have taken to twitter to announce that they are looking into stocking KPOP albums, specifically mentioning BTS albums. This is the first time any UK supermarket has talked about stocking kpop albums and for the first time UK ARMYs will be able to officially buy BTS albums without importing them. HOW EXCITING!? The twitter posts are in spoilers if anyone wants to read them! I've also heard rumours about Primark stocking BTS merch but I'm not sure. If anyone knows anything about that then please share!

Notably, sales made through the official listing on Amazon will count towards music charts including Hanteo, Gaon, and Billboard.

  15. BTS’s “WINGS” Breaks Own Record On Gaon Chart [Soompi] BTS’s second studio album “WINGS” has broken its own record as the highest-selling album ever recorded on Gaon Chart since the chart’s inception in 2010. The album was Gaon’s best-selling album of 2016, with a total of 710,000 copies sold last year. The figures have since increased to 773,356 copies, according to the January Album Chart results released on February 9. With such results, anticipation is high for the album’s successor, “You Never Walk Alone.” This follow-up to “WINGS” will be released on February 13. The track list for the album, concept photos, and the MV teaser for “Spring Day” have already been released. The boys will also be holding “The Wings Tour” concerts on February 18 and 19, where they will perform “Spring Day” and “Not Today” for the first time in front of fans. Source (1) ~~~~~~~~~ HIGHEST SELLING ALBUM EVER ON GAON CHART. HIGHEST SELLING. EVER. Also note that Wings sold just over 700,000 copies last year which we just learned is the same amount stores have preordered for YNWA. Meaning they expect to sell as many, if not more. In summary, I'm very emotional right now, someone hold me.

  17. As a newer American ARMY, I'm curious about what older fans think actual sales of BTS and other groups should be if multiple versions for each member (or whatever else) didn't exist. Americans don't bulk buy, we usually purchase digital albums (like I did with WINGS). [I'm definitely not trying to call out bulk buyers because praise those of you that are supporting BTS, you're very much appreciated and much love to you.] In other words, how many individual buyers do you think bought their albums as compared to the number sold?
  18. Hanteo Sales As of December 10, 2016. * means an unknown number.

Source: BTS_charts; Kpopalbumsales, Reddit. Some info: to access specific numbers, you need to have a Hanteo paid membership. As I can't afford that, I compiled imprecise data from BTS_charts, with the exception of Wings' numbers, which are available on Kpopalbumsales and Reddit. If anyone has specific data and wants to share, please do so and I'll edit the OP and give you the respective credits. Thank you and I hope this thread is helpful.

  20. This is for Single Albums. So BTS did THAT with their Hit Album™. Fun fact: If my memory or my research doesn't fail me, it's the first time a non-big 3 artist has won/top this award/chart. DAMN.
