BTS’ ‘Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2’ Spends Third Week Atop World Albums Chart

BTS' chart reign won't let up. The boy band's The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2 album spends a third week at No. 1 on Billboard's World Albums chart.

BTS‘ chart reign won’t let up. The boy band’s The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2 album spends a third week at No. 1 on Billboard‘s World Albums chart this week, extending their unprecedented feat. 

When Pt. 2 rose from No. 6 back to No. 1 last week, it marked the first K-pop album to spend multiple weeks at No. 1 on World Albums. The record originally debuted at No. 1 on the chart dated Dec. 19, 2015, also bowing at No. 171 on the Billboard 200. Now, BTS extend their unprecedented record with a third week atop the chart. The album has now spent six weeks on the chart the release, spending half its chart life at the summit.

Also just like last week, BTS has two others entires on the chart: Their 2014 album Dark&Wild bows at No. 10 on World Albums (down from No. 7 last week), as does The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 1 at No. 11 (down from No. 4 last week).

BTS’ chart dominance means that other groups will have to settle behind as a crop of groups also bow on this week’s ranking including iKON (whose Welcome Back LP drops to No. 6 from No. 2), Seventeen (Boys Be falls to No. 9, from No. 5) and Twice (the girl group’s debut EP The Story Begins starts at No. 15).
