Fan favorites like "My Time," "Filter" and "UGH!" have been recently outselling the singles.

While BTS' Map of the Soul: 7 has been a chart force since it stormed in with the year's biggest sales week and their single "On" earning the group's first Top 5 on the Hot 100, other albums tracks are increasingly finding love as the album moves into its third month on the charts.

This week marks the second consecutive week on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart where a Map of the Soul: 7 album track has outsold its singles. For the chart dated April 25, 2020, BTS' "My Time" rises to No. 3 this week (up from last week's No. 10) and "Filter" jumps to No. 7 (from No. 11). Both tracks sold an additional 1,000 copies this week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. While both songs are officially credited to the group BTS, they're sung by members Jungkook and Jimin respectively.

"My Time" and "Filter" have become standout fan favorites on Map of the Soul: 7, originally even landing enough activity to enter the Hot 100 during the LP's debut week at Nos. 84 and 87, respectively. So far, "My Time" has sold 24,000 total copies in America while "Filter" has sold 22,000, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The tracks follow after another Map of the Soul: 7 album track "UGH!" hit No. 2 on last week's World Digital Song Sales chart dated April 18, 2020, also outselling singles "On" and "Black Swan." While "UGH!" is officially credited to BTS as a group as well, the track is performed by their three rappers RM, J-Hope and Suga.

Altogether, "My Time," "Filter" and "UGH!" have all spent seven weeks on the World Digital Songs Sales chart while "On" has spent eight, and "Black Swan" (released ahead of the other tracks on Jan. 17, 2020) has spent 12 weeks.

Notably, there hasn't been any push by BTS or their labels for these album tracks with only music videos available for "On" and "Black Swan." Could these cuts continue to become hits all their own? If BTS' A.R.M.Y. has any say, soon all of the group's tracks will have some type of chart glory after the massively passionate and organized fandom has utilized digital downloads to show everything from supportive messages to the band to April Fools' Day pranks.
