Aug 15,2019
The boys of BTS may be on a break, but their music keeps on kicking.

On Wednesday, their agency Big Hit Entertainment announced that three of the band’s releases are on Billboard’s 200 albums chart, which was updated on Tuesday.

“‘Map of the Soul: Persona’ sits at No. 110 on the Billboard 200 chart, [appearing on the chart] for the 17th consecutive week,” the agency said.

“Love Yourself: Answer” (2018) currently sits at No. 118, and “BTS World OST,” an EP made up of original songs from Netmarble’s “BTS World” mobile game released in June, placed at No. 26 on the albums chart.

BTS once again topped the Social 50 chart this week, topping it for the 109th week running.
