World Albums Chart For February Features High Ranks For BTS, BLACKPINK, Chungha, And More
Billboard, an American entertainment media brand owned by the Billboard-Hollywood Reporter Media Group and is also a division of MRC Media & Info., has released its World Albums chart for the month of February.
With that, here are the K-pop artists that made high ranking spots:
Bighit Entertainment's internationally acclaimed K-pop boy group, BTS, makes number 1 with their album "BE." BTS has been number one for 12 weeks straight. The boy group will also predictably spend its 13th week on the chart overall.
Second place also belongs to BTS. With their album "Map of the Soul: 7" rising to number 2 from its prior spot, 52, on last week's chart.
This feat will truly exemplify BTS's start in 2021. This, including their appearance in MTV's "Unplugged" last February 23 and their nominations in Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards this March 14, sets the stage for an amazing first quarter for the boy band.
Next up is BLACKPINK, placing third with their album: "The Album." This has been on the chart for 20 weeks, giving YG Entertainment and BLINKS more reason to be proud of the girl group.

Moving on to fourth place, the Japanese album of TXT entitled "Still Dreaming" recently enters the charts. In addition, TXT's album made its first appearance on the Billboard 200 chart just this week at the 173rd spot.
Making their third and fourth appearance in the top 10 list is BTS. The boy group ranked 5th with their album "Love Yourself: Answer," being on the list for 130 weeks straight and ranked 6th with their other album "Love Yourself: Tear," which has been on the charts for 131 weeks straight now.
In 7th place is NCT's "RESONANCE Pt. 1," which has been on the charts for 19 weeks straight. Once again and for the last time, BTS makes their fifth appearance with their album: "Map of the Soul: Persona," which rises to No. 8 and has been on the list for 96 consecutive weeks.
