The band’s new album, “Love Yourself: Tear” ranked #1 on the Billboard main albums chart which was unveiled Sunday (local time) on the online edition of the Billboard magazine.
The album, which is the group’s third full-length album, also became the first primarily non-English album to top the chart in over 12 years.
