The band's new album became the first ever K-pop release to top the Billboard 200.
BTS have made American music history.
The megapopular South Korean boy band earned the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with the release of their latest album, Love Yourself: Tear. The achievement marks the first time a K-pop album has ever topped the U.S. charts.
The new release from the seven-member boyband dropped on May 18, and sold 135,000 equivalent album units, Billboard reports. Of that, 100,000 were traditional album sales. The album also out-performed sales predictions by over 30 percent.
This is only the second time a K-pop album has even made it into the top 10 of the Billboard 200. The other album, also released by BTS, was Love Yourself: Her, which debuted in September 2017 and peaked at no. 7 the following month.
The album is also breaking records for foreign-language releases overall. Love Yourself: Tear is the first foreign-language album to reach no. 1 since 2006, when Il Divo's Ancora topped the chart, featuring tracks sung primarily in Italian, French, Spanish and some English.
