Less than two years after their debut, BTS continue to make strides on the Billboard charts, reaching new peaks and landing within the Top 10 of two separate tallies this week.

The boy band's The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 1 album sold 2,000 copies in America, according to Nielsen Music. The effort lands them at the No. 2 on Billboard's World Albums chart and No. 6 on Heatseekers Albums -- new peaks for the boys on both charts.

BTS previously hit World Albums with Skool Luv Affair, which peaked at No. 3 on March 1, 2014, while later that year Dark&Wild also bowed at No. 3 on Sept. 6. Dark&Wild also peaked at No. 27 on Heatseekers Albums. 

Known as a K-pop group dedicated to hip-hop, The Most Beautiful Moment marks a somewhat softer moment for the band who tone down the intense and gratingly bombastic productions heard in past singles "Boy in Luv" and "War of Hormone" for a more melodic approach that still keeps their signature biting rap style in every track. That's further demonstrated in album standouts like "Dope," that's sees the guys utlizing saxobeat dance breakdowns, and the feel-good funk heard on "Boyz With Fun" and "Converse High.
