The supergroup follows BTS to the top.
SuperM re-enters at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Oct. 19) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time. Powering the coronation, the act's debut LP, SuperM: The 1st Mini Album, arrives atop the Billboard 200 with 168,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music.
The seven-piece, which contains one member from SHINee and two each from EXO, NCT 127 and WayV, becomes just the second K-pop act to lead the Artist 100, following BTS, which has ruled for five total weeks (also the most among all duos/groups).
SuperM: The 1st Mini Album also debuts at No. 1 on the World Albums chart, while the group itself returns to its No. 2 high on the Social 50 chart.
